Quotes

[on the Warrior hailing from "Parts Unknown"]
Bobby Heenan: He was probably too stupid to know where he was from! Either that, or someone paid him to keep it quiet. 'Here's 50 bucks, don't say you're from Pittsburg!'

This DVD is Vince making people born before the 90's jump on his new wrestlers bandwagon.
13 September 2006 | by andyveeSee all my reviews

THE ULLL-TI-MATE......WARRIOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!

Today's generation may have John Cena, Randy Orton, Triple H, and Batista to call sports entertainers....if you all were born after 1990.

SORRY. Not ME!. Andyvee was born in 1985! Yeah! This 21 year old baby was watching wrestling before any of these guys were in the wrestling business. And if your like me, the only wrestler you would probably like to watch was the Warrior, kicking some ASS! Come on Vince McMahon. You're taking to Warrior fans who were too young to understand the problems Warrior was creating. All you're doing trying to destroy the love and support we have for the Ultimate Warrior, and make us want to see your stupid-ass "sports entertainers" who also watched the Warrior perform themselves.

Stop Hatin' Vince. The 80's was the good old days.

WWF sucks ass. The Rock is gone, Stone Cold is gone, and all of the good guys from the past.

Hey, I might be living in the past, but that's when wrestling was good.

I will never watch WWF again. And if you like the Warrior, don't either.
