I have to say that I was annoyed by the Warriors sporadic carrer and felt his wrestling career could have been better had he compromised more with the WWE and WCW. I met him at an apperance in New York city in 2004 and he was a class act.
The dvd could have had more matches but its great to at least have some in the dvd format. This dvd had potential to be some something better but thanks to Vince McMahon it falls short.
The DVD is about the Ultimate Warrior's rise and fall from fame, but it also showcases many of the wrestlers of the time, including some really funny interviews. It is very well done and brought back many memories for me of when I was young and a huge wrestling fan. I loved it.
OK, this is a one sided documentary and it is clear that the Ultimate Warrior and the WWE did not have a great working relationship. However, I believe that everyone interviewed gave a good account of what transpired. I really don't think that anyone on this DVD was mean spirited or took low blows at the Ultimate Warrior with maybe a couple of exceptions being Bobby Heenen and Rick Flair. Even Vince McMahon came across as light hearted about what transpired and did not seem to hold much ill will towards the Ultimate Warrior. And there were some moments where some of those interviewed admitted to liking him and enjoying working with him (Hulk Hogan comes to mind). Basically, everyone thought he was just crazy.
Admittedly, some parts seemed a bit unfair to the Ultimate Warrior. I mean, they go on and on making fun of his interviews. Yes he was clearly "out there", but how many wrestlers say anything of importance in their interviews. It is usually a bunch of nonsense and lunacy. That's what it's all about. Then they say that the Ultimate Warrior was a "flash in the pan" despite him being in the WWF for over 7 years and being involved in wrestling for well over a decade. They make it seem that the Ultimate Warrior was a short timer and talk about how he could have had a long run if he had been more professional, etc. Let's face it, most wrestlers burn out and can only remain popular for so long. MOST of the guys from the 80's are nowhere to be found with very few exceptions. As for his wrestling skills, they make it seem like he was horrible, but in the next segment admit how great some of his matches were.
But again, I give the WWE credit for coming out with this DVD and they definitely pay respect to the Ultimate Warrior and what he brought to the table. Even Vince McMahon, who states he was royally scr@wed by him, admits that the Ultimate Warrior made a huge mark on wrestling.
Get this DVD, sit back with a cold beer and enjoy some classic wrestling memories...
