Digital Spy has a new interview with The Ultimate Warrior. Here are a couple of highlights:
His toughest opponent: “The toughest for me was the one that brought the best out of me, out of my character. That’s different from ‘Who’s the toughest guy, who’s the most badass opponent I ever faced?’. The toughest opponent for me would have been Randy Savage, the Macho Man, because his intensity paralleled mine. He became totally caught up in his character, which was a requisite to success in the business at the time.”
Possible WWE Hall of Fame induction: “The simple answer is they’ve got to tell the right story. That’s a possibility. Being in the Hall of Fame – Ultimate Warrior being inducted into the Hall of Fame, or me standing there at the Hall of Fame participating in it – is not going to mean anything to my goals in my life and the kind of quality of life I’m going to have, what kind of things I’m going to do, how productive I’m going to be as I move on throughout my life.Visit Wrestling Inc. I only get this one life, so I’m not going to sit in my own pile of poop and feel sorry that I’m not in the Hall of Fame. The Ultimate Warrior character relative to professional wrestling or WWE, he’s definitely a Hall of Famer. He’s a Hall of Famer whether he gets into the Hall of Fame or not.”
Which current stars he’d like to face: “Well, I don’t watch it, but with the internet it’s impossible not to be aware of some of the top talent… I’m one of the first guys in recent years that’s gone on the record and said to all my colleagues that were in the business at the same time I was that it’s time to pack your f**king gear bag and go home. Let the other guys have their chance and get your nose out of their business.
“People will say Ryback – ‘What would Warrior have been like with Ryback?’ Or Goldberg.Check out Wrestling Inc. I know why they say those things – because of the intensity and body look, the aggression, the power. Those kind of matches tend to be f**king stinkers, you know? You want to work with somebody who’s got a different style. Wrestling is more than just being big.”
Warrior also discussed his unique promos, working with Rick Rude, his legacy and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here
