Classic World Wrestling Federation Promotional Shots [1990-1992]
Enjoy the gallery of absolute, one-hundred percent, bonafied legend of professional wrestling. Seeings these photos just makes me wonder who we’ll see as legends from this generation…
“Always Believe in the O.W.N.” - WCW Magazine [November 1998]
Make fun of the Warrior all you want — his airbrushed duster jacket is greater than anything you own and will ever own in your miserable, little existence.
Sidenote: am I the only one that has trouble reading the Oprah Winfrey Network acronym as the One Warrior Nation?
WWF Wrestlemania Challenge - NES 
Feel the power of the pixelated Warrior!!
World Wrestling Federation TCA Advert [May 1992]
Fantastic ad with four of the biggest WWF stars of all time, and two jobbers that I do not recognize at all. Is anybody out there familiar with early 90’s WWF enhancement talent?
Ultimate Warrior WWE Legends Series 4 Bio 
Absolutely loved the artwork on these things. So cool.
The Ultimate Warrior Promotional Shot 
I can usually track down dates and other pictures from a photo session, but I have nothing for this one except for the year… and I’m not even sure that’s right.
Still — a great shot of the Ultimate one here, looking completely jacked to the gills.
The Disciple - Topps WCW/nWo Nitro Trading Cards 
A fitting name for a man who’s been Hulk Hogan’s right-hand man in and out of the ring throughout his entire career. It’s no secret that Ed Leslie’s friendship with the Hulkster has kept him employed and supplied with a myriad of gimmicks throughout the years (The Booty Man being the weirdest) , but I’ve always had a special place in my heart for The Disciple. To be honest, I think the reason why I liked the guy so much is that I never caught on that this biker dude that would stand beside Hollywood Hogan during his rambling Nitro openers was actually the former Mr. Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake! I never knew that it was Ed underneath the beard and gruff look for almost a full year!
This photo was taken during the brief period where The Disciple was taken in by The Warrior to become part of his One Warrior Nation (hence the Warrior symbols on his jacket), but the only times the guy usually wrestled was on late-night WCW programming. I put on emphasis on the word “usually” as this trading card captured a rare moment where The Disciple actually wrestled against Lenny Lane on WCW Monday Nitro. The match itself is nothing memorable but the segment that it lead to was the infamous bit where Hollywood Hogan ends up staring at a dressing room mirror, shaking in his boots at the sight at seeing The Warrior appear in the reflection.
While Hollywood Hogan plead with the vision of his adversary magically appearing in front of him (it was a two-way mirror rigged up backstage), Eric Bischoff spent the segment yelling at Hogan to snap out of his daze as he could only see his own reflection, not a Warrior (not even a Renegade).
This dumb segment probably would have worked better and actually be remembered fondly if Tony Schiavone wasn’t selling his amazement at seeing The Warrior appear or if Larry Zbyszko didn’t yell out, “HE’S IN THE WALL!!” during the spot.
Oh well — they can’t all be winners.
The One Warrior Nation - PWS: The Fright-Mare Before Christmas [12/7/2012]
Is there anybody out there that can give me some insight on this guy? I’ve seen the actual Warrior poke fun at his physique on his Twitter page, but I’ve never read anything else about him. Is he a straight up parody or just an homage to the Ultimate Warrior??
WWF Anti-Smoking Ad: The Ultimate Warrior 
“BLEGHURNFUMAITEWARHMIERASSMAA BAD HABITS, BUT ONLY ONES THAT HELP ME SURVIVE! DON’T DEPRIVE YOURSELF OF THE FULL POWER! BE A SURVIVOR! DON’T SMOOOKKKEEEE!”!
“Macho Man” Randy Savage vs The Ultimate Warrior - WWF WrestleMania VII [3/24/1991]
A classic shot of two icons of the world of professional wrestling, right before their Retirement Match at WrestleMania VII. Even though Savage lost the match, he stayed in the WWF as a broadcaster for several months before being reinstated to take on Jake “The Snake” Roberts in December of 1991.
