Remembering the Ultimate Warrior
On April 8th the Ultimate Warrior died. Warrior was inducted into the Hall of Fame just 3 days earlier. Then he died the night after he made his first RAW appearance in 18 years. The Ultimate Warrior known for his intensity and his running to ring and then shaking the ropes. The Ultimate Warrior's biggest highlight was him beating Hulk Hogan for the then WWF championship at WrestleMania VI. Ultimate Warrior was the most successful in his WWE tenure and he had a short stint in WCW too. Ultimate Warrior a wrestling icon and a pop culture icon. I rewatched Ultimate Warrior's Hall of Fame speech. It was sad to see that this man is dead. Thing that shook me was when he said this " I can't wait to be a ambassador for WWE for a multi year deal". When he said that it took me to the realization that this man died 3 days later. On the night after WrestleMania 30. The Ultimate Warrior came out and said this quote in one of his most epic promo's. Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized- Ultimate Warrior.
Ultimate Warrior is now immortalized. Legends never die. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. WWE should honor Warrior's last request make the Jimmy Miranda Award. or call it the Warrior Award. WWE should follow with his last request this man has been through a whole lot. The Warrior deserves this award to be realized. The backstage people should have a section of the Hall of Fame. Celebrities do. Why can't the people that make the magic have their own section.
RAW was amazing. NXT has talent.
We saw one of the most epic RAW's in a very long time. What can I say starting the show with Daniel Bryan. The crowd was electric Fandango and even Bad News Barrett got a pop. Rey Mysterio was treated like a heel. The Wyatt's were spectacular. Cesaro announcing he was a Paul Heyman guy. I actually called that one. When Paige made her debut I was like "who is booking this show it's freaking amazing". When Paige one the title. I personally marked out. I'm betting that AJ Lee was happy that she dropped the title to someone like Paige and not like a Naomi or Eva Marie or even a Natalya. The Shield is a great group and I can't wait to see them tear threw Evolution. WWE did two vignettes for Two NXT stars the first one was Bo Dallas. Bo Dallas was that guy in the Royal Rumble last year the you know wasted a spot. Bo Dallas said a Wayne Gretzky quote and came off as a Knucklehead. The other vignette was for Adam Rose. In my opinion Adam Rose has a better character and has better ring and promo skill then Bo Dallas. Adam Rose's vignette was him on the Exotic Express introducing us to his wildlife party animal styled character. Adam Rose has more of the uprising. Other NXT stars could be brought up like Sami Zayn a great in ring talent a little rough on the promo side. Sami Zayn I think could handle WWE's roster. I even thought a couple of month's ago that he would be at WrestleMania 30. I noticed something in WWE when you can really tell what guys the like and you can tell how they get treated too these guys seem like the nexts call ups. WWE and John Cena are in love with NXT Talent Mojo Rawley. When this guy makes the main roster he will be using his catchphrase "I don't get Hyped I stay hyped." Also when he makes the main roster I think he will go simply as Mojo. My reasoning is that Vince likes shortening and changing names. Antonio Cesaro is now Cesaro. Big E Langston is now simply Big E. So Mojo Rawley will be Mojo. Thats my prediction. The other star is named Corey Graves he seems like a OK wrestler and it seems like he has a similar look based on his tattoos like CM Punk. Trust me they make him seem like some kind of force in NXT he will be loved when he makes his debut. NXT is bright you can clearly tell who the smarks like and who the marks will fall in love with too.
