FEEL THE POWER OF THE ULTIMATE WARRYAAAARRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, 5 May 2014
So after almost two decades of acrimony between Warrior and the WWE, broken bridges were mended and he was finally welcomed back to the company. First came the 2K14 video game and later in April 2014 the blu ray, the hall of fame induction & his final public appearances at WMXXX and Raw. The timing of his death was erie, almost as if once he had finally got the recognition he deserved and the right story had been told his mission was over; It was time to load the spaceship with the rocket fuel and return to parts unknown.
After the smear campaign 'Self Destruction' DVD of 2005, a true career retrospective that did UW justice was long overdue and 'The Ultimate Collection' does just that. What we've got here is about 30 matches, all remastered looking much better than they do on youtube, interspersed with a new interview with Warrior filmed at his home in January of this year as he gives introductions to certain matches or reminisces about other legends such as Macho or Andre. All of UW's greatest matches are here and with a running time of over eight hours you will not be left unsatisfied.
My only gripes were that they could have included a few more promos (They were a big part of what defined UW, I think there are only about 5-6 in total throughout) and that some noteworthy matches are strangely absent;- Rude v Warrior (WMV), Losing the belt to Sgt Slaughter, The Papa Shango feud, Macho v Warrior SS 92, more of his 1996 matches and the admittedly crap yet still iconic WCW Hogan rematch etc etc. It would be nice to see a volume 2 that had this stuff & the HOF speech perhaps narrated by Dana Warrior?
Overall this is an Awesome collection packed with some of the greatest wrestling matches of all time. Ultimate Warrior was a true wresting legend and icon;- an absolute beast in the ring, underrated in his in-ring abilities and with more charisma and intensity in his little finger than half of the current WWE roster. Rest in Power ULTIMATE WAARRYAAARRRR!!!!!!
