My memories have betrayed me.

When i was a wee lad, i remember staying up on Friday nights to watch WWF wrestling and jumping off the couch, living and dying with the exploits of Randy Macho Man Savage, Hulk Hogan, and my personal fav, The Ultimate Warrior. Now that I'm older and have a sense of what some of those guys must have gone through ( check out the doc Beyond the Mat to see what i mean), I feel even worse when i see this video. The Ultimate Warrior was a insanely intense guy, no doubt fueled by whatever drugs he was consuming to maintain those obscene biceps. This video shows how just about everyone around him thought he was a raving lunatic. I think his intensity resonated with me, or maybe i was just watching his every move just so i can say i saw the moment his head exploded. Anyway, in this video he looks particularly batshit insane.

Slander, propaganda, lies, manipulation. Ultimate Warrior was ultimate. He survived Undertaker's attempt to suffocate him in the casket for crying out loud!

Ultimate Warrior was many people's fave. I know he was my cousin's. He was obsessed with (what was) WWF back then and LOVED Ultimate Warrior.

Everyone did.
