One of the main selling points for this set is the contribution from the Warrior himself, he hadn't spoken on a WWE release for a long old time and it's good that he did eventually before his sad untimely passing. The interview he gave is spliced into smaller chunks and inserted along the way to introduce the matches and there's various interesting insights including observations on - Sting, Macho Man, Undertaker, winning and losing titles, jobbers, the origins of The Dingo Warrior, how he built the "superhero" Ultimate Warrior character and much more. There isn't much insight into how he left the WWF on the various occasions that he did but I guess that was to be expected (you can get the WWF's version of this on the (in)famous Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior DVD).
There's some cracking matches on this set. I reckon Warrior could handle himself better in the ring than some would have you believe and it helps that the other fellas on this set are some of the greatest in ring talents from the era - Savage, Rude, Dibiase, Race and Mr Perfect are all sheer class. Throw in the likes of Hogan, Andre and Taker and you've got an awesome who's who of wrestling from the late 80's to early 90's. As well as the main matches there's a few "squash" matches included also against the likes of Horowitz and Lombardi. They may not have much merit as matches but they're fun reminders of how wrestling used to be and how they used to get these characters over.
There's also various vintage interviews and skits to break things up a bit. The ridiculous "crash the plane" promo, the brilliant funeral parlour angle and a super stiff beat down of Brother Love are a few of the highlights. There's not much from Warriors WCW run, just a few promos which kind of makes sense, it didn't really work out for the big man in the ring in Atlanta.
The Blu Ray has a little over an hour of extra footage and I think that's the way to go if you've got the option. Overall, it's a cracking trip down memory lane and finally a suitable way for us to remember The Ultimate Warrior - one of the great characters of the WWF. I've listed the matches included on the set below with a few random comments for anyone interested in such things (I've not listed the tv squash matches, there's not really much to say about those).
11/04/86 - The Blade Runners v Perry Jackson and Shawn O'Reilly - A stiff, short beat down which is only still worth a watch to see Warrior and Sting on the same team.
08/08/86 - Dingo Warrior v Chris Adams - Short and a bit of a mess, it's really about advancing a different storyline.
05/03/88 - Warrior v Harley Race - An interesting, solid little clash of eras match up.
15/07/88 - Warrior v Bobby Heenan - Weasel Suit Match - The standard Heenan weasel suit match, always good value with his usual ridiculous big bumping style.
29/08/88 - Warrior v Honkytonk Man - Intercontinental Title - Yeah it's just a squash really but an explosive and exciting one.
17/12/88 - Warrior v Honkytonk Man - IC Title - Underwhelming rematch really. Due to some choking spots we end up watching more of the crowd than we do of the actual match. A fun effort from Jimmy Hart keeps things interesting though.
11/02/89 - Warrior v Macho Man - WWF and IC Title match - A fun champ v champ brawl but there's MUCH better to come from these two.
28/08/89 - Warrior v Rick Rude - IC Title - These two knocked up quality scraps together and this is a mini epic. Good stuff.
28/10/89 and 25/11/89 - Warrior v Andre the Giant - IC Title - The first is so short it's more of a chaotic angle than a match really. The second is longer but is from the late stages of Andres career so it's dominated by bear hugs and a lame finish. Fun curiosities though.
19/03/90 - Warrior v Mr Perfect - IC Title - Always loved Mr P and this is another big bumping masterclass in how to make your opponent look like a million bucks.
01/04/90 - Warrior v Hulk Hogan - WWF and IC Titles - A proper main event with great story telling. Exceeded expectations aided massively by a rabid crowd that hit fever pitch early and never let's up.
13/04/90 - Warrior v Ted Dibiase - WWF Title - This is relatively short but the Japanese crowd in the Egg Dome gives this a different feel. An entertaining curiosity.
28/07/90 - Warrior v Rick Rude - WWF Title - More fast paced fun from these guys.
23/11/90 - Warrior v Ted Dibiase - WWF Title - A slightly longer chance for these two to put on a show. Pretty formulaic but still fun.
07/01/91 - Warrior v Sergeant Slaughter - WWF Title - Shorter, more pace and less chaos than the match they'd have a few weeks later at Rumble 91. And probably better.
21/01/91 - Warrior v Macho King - Steel Cage Match - Relatively brief but fun blue barred brawl. In the post match, things get pretty chaotic and a little bit saucy.
24/03/91 - Warrior v Macho King - Career Ending Match - One of my all time favourite singles matches. Brilliant story telling, I love just as much now as I did all those years ago as a lad.
02/06/91 - Warrior v Undertaker - This is the early career, slow moving Undertaker so it was never gonna be a classic. Worth watching for the novelty value though.
14/11/92 - Warrior and Macho Man v Money Inc - Tag Title Match - Not much of a match really, more of a set up for the next PPV main event (which sadly never actually took place).
31/03/96 - Warrior v Hunter Hearst Helmsley - Poor old Tripper, treated like a jobber on the grandest stage. Wonder if he thought that was best for business......
23/06/96 - Warrior v Jerry Lawler - Another brief, high energy bout. Lawlers audience insulting entrance is probably the highlight though.
The following are Blu Ray exclusive......
24/10/86 - Dingo Warrior v Matt Bourne - Ok but not much more. Interesting seeing the future Doink though.
24/07/88 - Warrior and The British Bulldogs v Demolition and Mr Fuji - Decent stuff, bit sloppy towards the end. Always good to see the Bulldogs though.
23/02/90 - Warrior v Dino Bravo - IC Title - Another short showcase of the big mans move set which includes a bit of a set up for Wrestlemania 6.
30/03/91 - Warrior v Sergeant Slaughter - Back in Japan for this one with Japanese commentary to boot. A fun chaotic opening then a pretty standard match.
28/04/96 - Warrior v Goldust - IC Title - Shame to end like this, I've never liked this one. Possibly due to a knee injury to Dustin, this is a complete non match. Not sure it belongs on this set but it doesn't sour the overall mood.
The DVD is done in the same style of Bret Harts dungeon collection with The Warrior introducing each match and segment. The first disc is Warrior's career. Then a number of squash matches. The thing you have to rember is at the time there was no RAW to feed into the soap opera that is wrestling, the Superstars would squash the non superstars. Now you are a superstar by getting into the WWE and the superstars fight each other. Back then I had to wait for the main events for this to happen. The biggest matches on this disc where a couple of matches against Randy Savage, Ravishing Rick Rude and Andre the Giant.
Disc 2 contains, Warrior's setup to Wrestlemania 6, good match with Mr Perfect, the title for title match match with Hulk Hogan, Rick Rude, and Sargent Slaughter. These are probobly the biggest matches of the Warrior's career. The time he was at the top of the business.
Disc 3 starts Warrior fude with Randy Savage ending with their career ending match. Then Warrior's many dissappearences and returnes including his WCW segment. I am glad Warrior was inducted into the hall of fame, being a former world chamipon it is only right. Terrible news about his death. I wish his family all well and my humble prayers. I really hope this DVD collection goes towards the Warrior being remembered in a good light. I hope this reminds people of his legecy, and make atlest a financial contabution to his family.
