When I was younger, I was obsessed with wrestling. From about 5th grade till about 10th grade I would watch any special or weekly show I could find. For my 11th birthday , I went to MSG and saw Andre the Giant wrestle Randy “Macho man” Savage. I ever had subscriptions to wrestling magazines where they covered all the southern bumblefuck wrestling federations where guys like Kerry Von Erich were royalty even though no one outside of arkansas had ever heard of him. Like most young kids, I had a clear favorite. That man was none other than the Ultimate Warrior. At the time, it just made sense. He was a complete lunatic who ran around like a crazed retard. That’s all my 12 year old brain really needed. Eventually, I lost interest in wrestling (Excluding a brief return of interest years later when Goldberg was in his prime). But I still retained a decent memory of those times. But, as is so often the case, Memories don’t always match up to the reality. Nowadays, when I see a clip with the Ultimate Warrior , I see a totally different thing. A roided up guy with serious emotional issues. Lucky for me, I find that hilarious. So, here are some clips of The Warrior acting a fool. Serious laughs to be had right here.
Let’s begin with my favorite:
Here’s the gawd on Arsenio
Here’s a re-edited interview of an older , paintless warrior made to seem like he got raped in a shower
Here he is being a lunatic in an interview with Mean Gene
I’d put up some clips of him actually wrestling but, truth be told, he was kind of a shitty wrestler and who gives a shit?
