Thank You Ultimate Warrior!

Rate this Entry
With out doubt I have alot to thank Mr Hellwig aka Warrior because if it was not for him I would have never been a wrestling fan today.
Do not get me wrong I have read all the debates on the guy and to be honest some right and some wrong but thats for others to debate.
In the UK the wrestling scene was dire and in bad need of updating so was thus slipping off the tv schedule but thankfully sky stepped in with the WWF but this was still not catching my eye with Hogan going through Cena like moves and just over dominating the scene.
But one day I sat there and flicked channel to catch a WWF show half way through and was stunned to watch this nutter run in to pumped up music and crush this guy, then finish him off by lifting above his head, but then to cap it all he legged it out with not even a nod to the crowd which sent the every one wild and had me hooked totally.
Now I loved the energy and even when giving an interview the Warrior was utter nuts, making no sense at all but it just added to the whole character.
Now in the journey up to his legendry win over Hogan I got to learn my love of real wrestling and admired the real talent like Ted Debiase, Curt Hennig and Tito Santana plus a few more but I still loved this painted nutter with his energy madness even loony tune behaviour.
Now sadly another thing I would learn is that WWF/E would be great at ruining something that did not need fixing and they would morph Warrior in to a wannabe Hogan and I found myself drifting away from wrestling but not fully but enough to be a casual fan with no real hunger to follow the story lines.(Just watch the Papa shango feud)
But with out you Warrior I would have missed Randy Savage or Rick Rude plus some awesome Tag Teams like the Harts or the killer Bees.
I returned to being a wrestling addict sometime later when 3 things happended for the next great era in wrestling that had a guy come into the ring as breaking glass sounded and like the Warrior trashed the wrestler then left with hardly a nod to the crowd then this duo uttered the words suck it but in the opening shots of war hogan turned black and white.
Just as Punk broke down the wall of Cenation, Warrior made Milk, Prayers and vitamins seem tame so thus the crack in Hulkamania appeared that was followed by the Undertaker and HBK.
Warrior was not the best but opened doors for me and today I type this in my Punk T shirt and having watched Daniel Bryan vrs CM Punk a few times from the last PPV so perhaps just perhaps its not that bad when a limited wrestler is the top star for a while and a young kid gets hooked on wrestling because its the first step in understanding a great art form.

This Blog is Dedicated to wrestlers who should have been WWF champions.

Ted Debiase
Roddy Piper
Arn Anderson
Scott Hall
Curt Hennig
Ricky Steamboat
Jimmy Snuka

Plus never mention the Warrior WCW travesty

    So, you didn't like Hogan dominating everyone with Cena like moves... But you DID like Warrior doing it... THEN you "dedicate" the blog to Ted Dibiase and Roddy Piper... in a blog titled "Thank You Ultimate Warrior"... (with terrible grammar, punctuation, and absolutely no rhyme or reason)...

    Be honest, are YOU the Ultimate Warrior?

    P.S: The WCW Travesty

    ^^^^ ROTFLMAO!

    Personally I always hated the guy, in and outside the ring. I met him once and what a douchebag.

    I've always been an Ultimate Warrior fan. He was a bit of a prick behind the scenes but his promos were entertaining. A lot of people have criticized his wrestling ability being one-dimensional but he was a great worker in the ring despite his limited moveset.

    Actually I do not hate Cena but I found it inspiring to compare my son's love of Cena with my past admiration of the Warrior.
    Warrior had something that Cena and hogan did not and thats energy but I fully acknowledged all 3 had limited moves.
    Yes my grammar stinks but you know what I read alot of blogs and maybe some people have learning issues but its still great to read there opion and thoughts.
    Lastly I stated my reason to thank the Warrior was that he opened my eyes to alot of great wrestlers and many of those failed to hold the belt due to certain wrestlers of lesser talent holding the belt.......
    Am I the Warrior?
    SPEAK TO ME WARRIORS

    Warrior was the man that drew me into the wrestling scene as well. His raw strength and crazy antics got me hooked. A lot and I mean ALOT of people do not like Warrior, but his moveset and lack of anything but power remind me of another guy from WCW (The Streak) that people fawned over. both were said to be very stiff and poor workers but they were absolutely entertaining.

    But I'm still INCREDIBLY confused as to what the point of this is. Like... a "Warrior blog dedicated to Roddy Piper", or an "I don't like Cena, but kinda sorta trash him, then randomly name drop CM Punk, in reference to Ted Dibiase, still 'thanking' Ultimate Warrior, even after admitting that he kinda sucked cajones" blog...

    Is your point that it takes a wrestler who has no promo skills and is superbly limited when it comes to in-ring... anything... to get someone to realize just how good OTHER wrestlers are? If so, I completely agree. That's why Ryback is on Smackdown...

    But yeah, keep up with the... um... confusing work.

    I liked Warrior and I believe he brought a lot of attention and fans to WWF. Don't know if the Warrior WM story is true where he held up Vince, but if so he's a dick to fans. Threatening to no show a highly advertised match that people paid tickets and bought PPV's for is a selfish move.
