  1. Cameron,
    As a long time wrestling fan I found your review to be insightful and informative. You help fans see the Ultimate Warrior as more then a warrior of the squared circle but as an extremely educated and creative individual. Great work Cameron.

  2. This article helps reveal the man inside the legend. Cameron peels back the facade of hype and fame, revealing the person that not always seen through the lights, camera and action. I’m looking forward to Part II.

  3. Typical small ‘c’ conservative garbage. A man clearly terrified by anyone questioning the state of things, whose only argument is a naturalistic fallacy that confuses what ‘is’, or perhaps ‘was’, with what ‘should be’.

  4. Excellent article, thank you for focusing on things that matter.

  5. Interesting stuff, I’m looking forward to the next installment.

  6. AMEN!!! Yeah, That’s why there always will be, has been, ONE Ultimate Warrior. The only man to ever create & perform only one Ultimate Warrior is that of Warrior (aka Jim Hellwig). Warrior is strong today and always will be, especially when he does something all his Warrior fans do so well, And that is…ALWAYS BELIEVE!!! Forever WARRIOR fan, Danny Wissert

  7. Good article. I respect this man and his continuous development but, at the same time, he sounds quite conservative and even – maybe – reactionary.
    I mean, thinking in black/white terms is quite the contrary of philosophy! :D
    And, IMHO, we’re just lucky to get rid of old stereotypes and traditional roles… we aren’t all molded from the same cast, despite what he thinks. God spare us from the “100% true man” of yore… ;)

    Where I totally agree with him, is when he says:
    “Somewhere about the same time, the truth became offensive to people and reality became something people tried to get around rather than dealing with it head-on.”
    To those people, so easily offended and reality-avoiding, I’d say out loud: “MAN UP!” :D

    • Loved the Ultimate Warrior but thats some funny shit coming from a man who wore a mankini and pretty bands!

  8. This guy is a joke and a hypocrite. He says that Sean Hannity is not conservative enough for him. Although not mentioned in this article warrior boy was married to a stripper for years and then got divorced. Some conservative values.
