Well said. One thing though, Warrior HAS actually walked in their shoes in so far as being in the wrestling business at the same era. Warrior was probably on as much "juice" as any of the boys back in the day. Thankfully he was able to defeat the demons before they overcame him.

The one thing that never seems to be mentioned these days when people are discussing Warrior's career is what a great showman he was. Nobody could come close to popping a crowd like him just by entering an arena. His performance really started as soon as his music hit.

No. He wasn't the most technically skilled wreslter on the roster. Hell, he wasn't even close and has admitted as much himself in old and recent interviews. But he never needed to be. His style was power/brawler, get in the ring, steamroll through your opponent in 2 minutes or less. He just wouldn't have been the same unstoppable machine if he had worked 20 minute technical, mat based matches with jobbers and lower card talent and he wouldn't have reached the same level of appeal. He did it his way and he succeeded.
