I just don’t believe this.

Days after being inducted into the Hall of Fame, the Ultimate Warrior has left us all.

This past weekend, was probably the best one times I’ve had if not in a long time, than ever. I finally had time to actually take a vacation. Wrestlemania weekend was unbelievable and hanging out with over 75,000 of my closest friends was a great experience. I arrived home late Monday night and went into work Tuesday still feeling great. Then, this happens.

I was at the Hall of Fame ceremony and took the picture above as Ultimate Warrior about to speak. I saw him both at the ceremony and of course, on the stage Sunday. I actually wanted to go to Raw the next night but had to get back for work. I wish I had now because as he did on Saturday, the Warrior made another great speech on Monday. After finding out the news of him going away, he must have known something was happening to him.

One thing he said in his speech on Saturday that made me really smile was talking about how many athletes portray pro wrestlers with their gimmicks but, you never see a wrestler do something that a football player does, for example. He mentioned an example as Ray Lewis with his face paint. It didn’t make sense until he brought it up but Lewis always had the face paint similar to the Ultimate Warrior and he admitted, it was him paying homage.

Even though I am not an athlete, I do the same thing as well. I even had my chops (by cracky) as an homage for CM Punk before finally shaving them a few weeks back. I guess the thing I find funny about it is that not many people, such as customers or family members know why I did that. If you explained to them why, they still wouldn’t understand. It’s a wrestling-thing.

It’s because we’re wrestling fans and that’s what we do. We drive 12-13 hours for Wrestlemania. Some of us fly from other countries for a show and most of those people, dress up as one of their favorite wrestlers. From the outside, it’s geeky and some may think we’re morons. But that’s fine. We, as fans shouldn’t give a shit what people think of us. It’s what we love and that’s all that matters. The Ultimate Warrior felt the same way. He told us both on Saturday and on Monday that it was us, who made him.

Nobody becomes a legend on their own.

    Jesus Fro…..I’m beyond stunned. I sure didn’t expect this. Nobody did, I guess. I’m at a complete loss for words. It’s a good thing that he was able to mend a lot of fences before he died.

    R.I.P. Warrior.

    R.I.P. James Brian Hellwig

    I hope the ropes of heavens ring can handle whats coming.

    Still can’t believe it. I noticed this while watching Raw too but he seemed to have been breathing heavily and had some shortness of breath because he made some pauses while speaking. I think he did the same thing at the ceremony. At first, I thought it was just his character because he did that when he wrestled. Instead, it wasn’t. All signs point to a heart attack.

    So a word of advice… When your getting close to 40 don’t go playing basketball with a group of 20 year old kids.

    Any pointers on how to take a crap with a knee stabilizer wrapped around your leg?

  6. chucky Says:

    Seriously, find a bathroom where you can stretch your legs out completely. Trust me, I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt. 5 knee surgeries(on both knees), and a partially torn quad that totally immobilized my right leg, gave me all the experience I need. It’s about the only way you’ll be able to accomplish your mission. Good luck.

  7. Fro Dog Says:

    Damn. That must suck. I have to say though, I was laughing a bit with your question of how to take a crap. Haha. Either way, I feel bad for both of you old, ANGRY! farts.

  8. chucky Says:

    Fro….I’m not angry. Never have been angry.

    By the way, it’s time to disembowel Brian Schithead with a wooden cooking spoon. Good job pissing away Travis Woods well deserved win today you long haired bitch. No wonder you fucking suck, you’re wearing #63, the number worn by another shithead loser bitch named Kevin FUCKING Gregg. More fucking shit from the Cubs illustrious bull(shit)pen.

    Nah, I’m never ANGRY! Just tired of stupid fucking BULLSHIT.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
