• WWE Hall Of Famer Says Ultimate Warrior Wasn’t A Good Person & A Giant Pain In The A$$ – Used Abusive Language In Front Of Women Of All Ages
During a recent edition of his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross talked about late WWF Legend The Ultimate Warrior.
Below is what Good Ol’ JR had to say about Warrior:
“I think he was a giant pain in the a$$ from day one. He had a massive ego, knowing that he was not highly skilled, knowing that his number one selling point was his physique and his charisma that largely was created through his music and lights and promo. He wasn’t a good person in my view.
That’s my opinion, I thought he used extremely coarse and abusive language in front of women of all ages. I thought that was ridiculous and I saw it with my own eyes.
I’m not bullsh*tting or telling somebody else’s story that I heard, it’s not rumored, I’m telling you what I saw. I didn’t think the guy was a good person. He always seemed to be at the center of controversy, which is not always good. He always seems to be looking for that easy pay day.
I didn’t have a lot of respect for the Ultimate Warrior to be honest with you.
I’m sad that he passed, I’m glad that he got his moment in the sun before he died. I really am, for his fans sake and his family. I’m sad that he left two beautiful daughters and a lovely wife upon his death.
He wasn’t a good guy. Any time there was a lawsuit with him involved, I always was cheering for the other guys because I just thought he was looking for a pay day. He had little to no respect for our business and I don’t have a lot of time for guys like that.”
