The Ultimate Warrior was one of my favorite wrestlers growing up. I didn’t care about his lack of actual wrestling ability, but as a kid, none of that really mattered. He would sprint to the ring, shake the ropes and beat the bad guy. That’s all a kid really wants.
Later in life, I realize he was a flawed person, but aren’t we all.
There are quite a few videos of the Ultimate Warrior that are quite unflattering (mostly when he went ultra-Conservative and said some anti-gay remarks), but I chose to feature only videos of him in character. Enjoy!
