    The man who made the quote "queering doesn't make the world work". I don't know or get why the WWE even has an award named after him when wwe/wwf hated the company so badly. I will show you this video and you decide.



    Oh, Btw, Read what he said about others

    We all know that Warrior was a pretty bad guy, and only cleaned up his act in the last few years of his life.

    I liked the Warrior. He was a much better performer than people give him credit for.

    He said some stupid things at times. But also talked a lot of sense as well.

    He was pretty shite in the ring, even for that time.

    I think it wouldn't be too bad if he hadn't gotten a massive ego about it.

    He did very little. But was good at it.

    He was mediocre at most. Very few people in the wrestling industry have pushed people like Andre the Giant to the edge due to incompetence, but Dingo Warrior did.

    He played his character well.

    He was more over than 99% of wrestlers could ever dream of being

    He was over for like 1 year. He was a dead act by '91 and his constant hissy fits drained any hope that he'll regain his place. He had left the company and returned like a dozen times by 1996.

    He wasn't that over in 1988. Guess you can make the case for 1989, but his peak was 1990, and it was a dead act by the fall.

    He was building momentum in 88.

    Even in 91 and 92 he was still over. The crowd still responded to him. Even if he wasn't on Hogan's level as an all-round performer.

    I still think he was over the hill by 1991. His biggest pop after the 1990 push was his Mania return. He never had a big pop or a sustained run again.

    12 seconds at an arena that would host RAW, nowadays, isn't that great.

    His pop was alright, but it was mostly the kids that remembered him from 6 years earlier. Even Daniel Bryan has received similar pops.

    Arena that would host RAW?

    Wrestlemania 8 was held in a stadium.

    WrestleMania 12, I was referring too.

    I think you knew that

    And?

    Does it matter if a pop is massive in a 20k arena or a 80k arena? It was still a decent pop.

    It does matter. Bryan routinely got decent pops in 20k arenas. His pops weren't that impressive at stadium shows like Mania 34.

    Well, Warrior got a massive pop at WM8 in a stadium.

    That negates your initial argument.

    4 years earlier haha

    It was a shock pop too. He made an unexpected return. Imagine just as many neutrals hoping to see a good outcome popped as did people that actually liked Warrior.
