'''Warrior''' (born James Brian Hellwig; June 16, 1959 - April 8, 2014), best known by his WWF ring name '''The Ultimate Warrior''', was one of the most famous names of ProfessionalWrestling from the late '80s and early '90s. He is best-known for his appearances in Wrestling/{{WWE}} in the late '80s and early '90s, where he had a famous match at ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} VI'' defeating Wrestling/HulkHogan for the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-h.html WWE World Heavyweight Championship]]. Back then he was seen as the next big legend of wrestling, the next Hogan, so to speak. His gimmick is bit hard to describe but, put simply, he's an [[MagicalNativeAmerican incomprehensible new-age nut]] who acts as sort of spirit channel for [[PowersViaPossession various great warriors across history.]]

* NoSell: Much like Hogan, Warrior made a career out of no selling even the most powerful moves used against him. Arguably, his most [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome amazing and memorable no sell was]] [[MadeOfIron IMMEDIATELY STANDING UP AFTER BEING]] [[FinishingMove PEDIGREE'D]] by {{Triple H}} at {{Wrestlemania}} XII! This feat alone was a testament to his {{Invincible Hero}} status.

Trope rename.
* [[InvincibleHero Boring Invincible Hero]]: The Warrior's career in the WWF was this personified. At first, Warrior was everything Vince loved in a wrestler at the time (insanely ripped, unique promo style, lots and lots of energy) and was built up as the next generation's Hogan. Warrior rarely ever lost and when he did, it was pretty much never cleanly. He ended the IC championship reign of the Honky Tonk Man (the longest reign ever), beat the likes of Wrestling/AndreTheGiant and Wrestling/HulkHogan, and capped off his career in the WWF by completely no-selling Wrestling/TripleH and the Pedigree. Chances are this treatment helped turn him into the person everyone knows today.

* TalkativeLoon: The Ultimate Warrior's wrestling promos often took the form of long, rambling diatribes addressed at Hulk Hogan that often made little sense. It's unclear how much James Brian Hellwig himself [[ShurgOfGod actually understood]] what he was saying.

** Ultimate Warrior’s defeat of HonkyTonkMan to win his first Intercontinental Championship is particularly noteworthy. Honky Tonk Man was supposed to fight [[BrutusBeefcake Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake]] for the title, but because Brutus was attacked and injured the week before, Honky Tonk Man made an open call to anyone to fight him for the championship. [[OhCrap Out comes the Warrior]]! [[FiveMovesOfDoom After a few punches, body slam, and a flying tackle]], the Warrior did the [[FinishingMove Warrior splash]] on Honky Tonk Man and got the pinfall.

* LargeHam: Without a doubt, Warrior hams it up.doubt. -->'''[[https://franticplanet.wordpress.com/2014/04/09/always-believe-warrior-1959-2014/ Stuart Millard]]''': His 100% commitment to the character is what made a snarling, facepainted maniac with neon tassels on his biceps spitting black metal poetry monologues and shaking the ropes completely believable.

* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: Warrior claimed in his WWE Hall of Fame speech that the company asked him ''not'' to mention or reference ''The Self-Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior''. In classic Warrior fashion, after barely avoiding the subject one or two times, he gave up and mentioned it anyway, albeit never by name. * SelfDeprecation: The ''Ultimate Warrior: The Ultimate Legend'' special makes it quite clear that Warrior was well aware of the fact no one could understand his promos and laughs about it. * SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome [[invoked]]: Winning the WWF Championship from Wrestling/HulkHogan at ''[=WrestleMania=] VI''. He and Hogan had the match planned out weeks in advance to ensure it was as good a match as possible. ** His very first appearance on WCW. Whether you saw it on TV or live: Eric Bischoff claimed that the ratings slowly went down during that segment, but Warrior got some deafening pops every time he opened his mouth.

* AllAmericanFace: Probably the closest thing to a Dork Age that Hellwig had. No fanfare, no change in personality: he just showed up to the '91 Royal Rumble wearing red, white, and blue tights and facepaint. At the time, Warrior was being pushed as the next Main Eventer--substitute "Hulkamania runs wild" for "trembling and [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3dq5lZXS91r324lio1_400.gif chanting to the wrestling gods]]"--so somebody upstairs gave him a makeover he didn't need. ''[-*[[Wrestling/RomanReigns cough]]*-]''
