“When The Blade Runners came to UWF, I was the broadcaster. I have never met or seen a wrestler with less ability than The Ultimate Warrior. Hell wig [Jim Hellwig, Warrior’s real name] was very narcissistic. “I look so good, I have a big smile, I have beautiful teeth. What more could a promoter want? Well, I don’t know, maybe you could struggle? “H / t Sportskeeda

Warrior and Sting (Steve Borden) were tag team partners at UWF in March and June 1986.

Even though The Ultimate Warrior made a name for himself, it is strongly believed that he couldn’t separate his real life from his character in the ring.

The main WWE man spoke about how The Warrior viewed him as a father. Notably, several Superstars see McMahon as a father figure, but they know the limits.

The Ultimate Warrior believed their relationship reflected a father-son relationship. McMahon disagreed and revealed that he never thought of Warrior as his son.

Other than that, Vince McMahon had to take tough action against The Warrior.

As it turns out, The Warrior started demanding more pay, and he announced that he wouldn’t be in a match if he didn’t receive the same amount as Hulk Hogan.

McMahon realized it was time to show him who the boss is and cut a passionate promo. In it, he delivered a letter to Warrior and stated that he would never be as good a wrestler as Hulk Hogan in any form. As a result, he suspended Warrior.
