During a recent episode of Cornette’s Drive-Thru, Jim Cornette spoke on Vince McMahon’s obsession with The Ultimate Warrior. Here’s what he had to say:
He [Warrior] went to WCW and made their life miserable, sapped them for some money and sucked. You see how frustrating it is to be in Vince McMahon’s orbit, because when all is well, he can be, as we’ve mentioned many times before, such a charming billionaire, and fun to be in the presence of in some instances, but can also be fucking crazy, and for the same that he looks at people who obviously have talent and obviously you would want as part of your company, and eh, he doesn’t give a shit, he fixates on guys like this, because he made this, this was his, I think even more than Hogan, this was his idea of what a wrestler should look like, and he gave the country and the world mass hysteria or perpetrated mass hypnosis for like, that fucking two, two and a half year run of the Ultimate Warrior where he was really fucking hot, or was it three years? Whatever the fuck. And then there was nostalgia as we will recall in ’96 that lasted about two TV appearances, and then the product had run off and left the Ultimate Warrior back in ice cream bar land.
