By Dan McKinnon VINE VOICE on September 28, 2005
Format: DVD
First things first, I am was and still am a HUGE Ultimate Warrior fan. I got back into wrestling from 1997-2002 (I still watch it here and there but no longer consider myself a fan any more) and cheered for wrestlers like The Rock before he was big all the way up until he left (probably the single biggest reason why I lost interest in WWE again). Before that time I was a WWF fan from 1987-1993 and I absolutely loved the Ultimate Warrior. Bar none, he is my favorite wrestler of all time, as short a moment in time as it was.

I state this to make it known that I was extremely excited when I heard that WWE was releasing an Ultimate Warrior DVD, scouring the Internet for news on a daily basis to learn more about what was being released regarding my favorite wrestler of all time. I knew that this was not going to be any love-fest by the WWE brain trust, but I didn't care. Just the ability to see the warrior in the DVD format and have others talk about the individual that made moments of my sometimes crappy childhood filled with joy... it took me back to happy moments that you cannot easily feel again.

After having rushed out to pick up "The Self Destruction Of The Ultimate Warrior" and watched the 1.5 hour special about his career in the ring, I find that it was a very FAIR assessment of Warrior's wrestling legacy. Other Ultimate Warrior fans have written online that this DVD badmouths the former Mr. Hellwig and puts him in a light that isn't completely accurate. In a situation of "he said she said" usually the truth lies somewhere in between so I am sure that this DVD isn't 100% accurate, but my overall impression of this disc is that it is very FAIR (and again, I remind you that I was about as a big a fan as there is of The Ultimate Warrior).

One of my favorite era's in WWF history is during the Ultimate Warrior's 1st run. I still get chills & my heart races watching the closing moments of WrestleMania VI. "The Self-Destruction Of The Ultimate Warrior" is brutally honest. It takes a look at Jim Hellwig's career, touching on his start with Steve 'Sting' Borden as the 'Dingo' Warrior, & his various stints in other minor promotions before calling the WWF for a job. It covers some of the aspects of the Warrior that made him unique & appealing, like his ring enterances, & his extremely un-understandable interviews. Most of his major rivaleries & high spots are looked at, like Rick Rude, Andre The Giant, Bobby Heenan (who provides some awesome stories & insight though-out the DVD), his quick raise to the Intercontinental Title, his historic WWF Heavyweight Title victory, & other topics like why he left the WWF 3 times, his brief run in WCW, his horrible rematch against Hogan at 'Halloween Havoc', & more.Read more ›

...you know it's gonna be bad but you can't stop watching it. That basically describes this DVD about the Ultimate Warrior (which resulted in a lawsuit filed today) as it's ALMOST a complete burial on the man. I said it's an "almost" burial because certain people like Jericho & Christian did give him his respect on certain issues while people like Edge (who openly said he couldn't be a fan of Warrior's because of his allegiance to Hogan); Dibiase; Heenan; Lawler; McMahon & others just completely have nothing good to say at all. Just about everything about Warrior gets ripped on...ring entrance, wrestling skills, his bad career decisions, his bad attitude towards those in the locker room. His interviews are also touched upon as they focused on one he did leading up to WrestleMania VI (although on the DVD, they say it's the one he did at the event which it wasn't) including Christian doing a funny imitation of it.

The one thing that is very noticeable is how WWE did somethings to make Warrior look worse than he actually did & alter information (showed fliers advertising "WWF Champion Ultimate Warrior vs. Vader" when Warrior wasn't champion when Vader was around back in '96), them mocking how he's from Parts Unknown when they currently have characters using that same "location" (like Kane) along with the little things he did like shaking the ropes (which Batista currently does as well.)

Anyways, they discuss his time starting as Blade Runner Rock & Dingo Warrior all the way to his beginnings under Ultimate Warrior.
