New DVD reveals behind-the-scenes tales of the Ultimate Warrior

Peter W | Interrobang | Lifestyles | October 17th, 2005



As a long time wrestling fan, I've been enjoying many of the DVD collections and biographies that the WWE has been releasing. It was an easy choice to pick up their newest DVD that features a retrospective look at one of the most energetic superstars ever to grace the ring: The Ultimate Warrior.

The WarriorThe WWE has assembled many people who have worked with (and actually those who haven't worked with) the Warrior to give their take on the mysterious superstar. Edge and Christian, for some reason, give their two cents just as much as Vince McMahon does!

I would have to say that about 80 per cent of the comments made about the Ultimate Warrior on this DVD are negative. They trash his interviews, they trash his backstage politics and they slam (no pun intended) his in-ring ability. I find it quite amusing that there are people on this DVD that question the Warrior's wrestling ability and then they have Hogan comment on the Warrior. Hogan has the same, if not less, wrestling finesse as the Warrior. To Hogan's credit, he is one of the nicest people commenting on the Warrior on this DVD. HHH comments about the Warrior's backstage antics, and we all know who makes people mad nowadays backstage. As for the Warrior's interviews, yeah, they're pretty much out there but when I was a kid, I still thought it was cool.

One of the biggest Warrior haters on the DVD has to be Bobby “the Brain” Heenan. There is not one nice thing he has to say about the Warrior and he comes off as a jealous little man. The same goes for “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase. You can tell that he is so pissed off that the WWE did so much for the Warrior and perhaps not enough for him.

The Warrior refused to take part on this DVD project and has posted his comments on his own website: http://www.ultimatewarrior.com/09.27.05DVDII.htm. The bonus matches on the DVD include Warrior's first match on Superstars, vs. Hogan at WM VI, vs. Rick Rude in a steel cage and vs. the Macho King Randy Savage at WM VII in a retirement match.

This DVD was a great nostalgic trip for me and I really enjoyed looking back at one of the WWE's top superstars. There's probably some truth in the negativity on this DVD but there are two sides to every story and I would have loved for the Warrior to have been a part of this DVD to tell his tale. Oh well, I'll have to purchase another DVD to hopefully get the whole picture.
