As I watched the Ultimate Warrior give a brief speech this past Monday night on Raw, I felt incredibly happy to see that man in the ring again. It had been far too long since Warrior and WWE got along, and with that tumultuous past now behind them, the two could finally come together and give the legions of wrestling fans around the world some new memories to add to the old ones.
That was the plan, at least. Two days later, I, along with the rest of the world, am standing in shock as this seemingly indestructible man has passed on, no longer among us. One of my all-time favorites, second only to The Undertaker, was never coming back after JUST making his triumphant return. Of course, thanks to the video games we play every day, The Ultimate Warrior can and will live on, because as Warrior said himself two nights ago: “I am The Ultimate Warrior. You are the Ultimate Warrior fans, and the spirit of Ultimate Warrior will run forever.” Though many take issue with his offscreen personality, his legacy in the ring is undeniably legendary. So, to pay tribute to one of wrestling’s greatest participants, let’s check out the video game history of the Warrior.
