During a recent episode of Cornette’s Drive-Thru, Jim Cornette spoke on The Ultimate Warrior refusing to let Triple H get any offense in during their Wrestlemania encounter. Here’s what he had to say:
And then Triple H told a story, and this is not a lie, he went in, OK, it was his job because Triple H was not a main event star then, he was a guy they wanted to push, and he would shoot himself in the foot on that with the curtain call and his push would be delayed about a year, but he was a good young talent, and he went in saying, I’m supposed to do a job for the Ultimate Warrior, so I’m gonna do the best of my ability to do that and he hit Warrior with some things, Warrior said, no, this is what it’s going to be, you’re gonna get nothing, I’m gonna beat you. He wouldn’t work with him. It was not specifically booked that way for him to just emasculate Triple H. Triple H was his opponent so he could get a win on PPV in a special attraction match, a returning legend beats some guy on the roster that’s an upcoming star but he’s not a main event guy, it wasn’t supposed to be a big draw match, the draw was the return of the Ultimate Warrior, but we didn’t say no, you need to fucking beat this guy with no offense and treat him like a piece of shit. That was the Ultimate Warrior, because that was what he did, because it was all about him.
