the Ultiamate Warrior does hold a very good theme song i love using it when working out.
However watch The Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior it is a documentry put out by the WWE it will change your view on the warrior quite a bit.
Remember guys he legally changed his name to Warrior , IMO thats way to obsessed with yourself
I wouldn't put too much stock in what a WWE film says about people that aren't in it's good graces. The movie puts on McMahon's agenda and is more or less a documentary against the Ultimate Warrior... Either way, it's got lots of funny interviews and stuff, but you should really read between the lines...
Regarding changing his name to Warrior (which is pretty stupid):"In 1993, Jim Hellwig legally changed his name to Warrior in order to retain the legal rights to use the name outside of the WWF. The one-word name appears on all legal documents pertaining to Warrior. The ultimatewarrior.com domain is registered to "Mister Warrior".
Warrior and the WWF engaged in a series of lawsuits and legal actions in 1996 and 1997, culminating in a court ruling that Warrior was legally entitled to use the gimmick, costuming, face paint designs, and mannerisms of the "Warrior" character, though his facepaint was a similar facepaint that the Road Warriors used.
I'd figure, McMahon would still hold a grudge about this, but I wouldn't think he'd go to the lengths of actually making a movie about it... I guess whatever you can do to make some scratch, nowadays
Take that for what it's worth... I started looking into a bunch of stuff about him after reading some of the comments on that youtube clip...
