The Ultimate Warrior
According to the Washington Post, “Heralded as the man who made personality a full-on requirement of wrestling showmanship, he was inducted into WWE’s Hall of Fame over the weekend. …He wasn’t the first to develop and commit to a character — “Classy” Freddie Blassie and Hulk Hogan, among many others, did it too — but he turned it into an art form.”
I was a fan of wrestling but The Ultimate Warrior wasn’t a personal favorite of mine, he took himself a little too seriously and I liked goofier characters. Still, this mofo knew how to commit.
He was 54.
