* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: Warrior was a divisive figure in life to say the least, but after his untimely demise, there has been a noticeable softening of opinion around him, including on ThisVeryWiki. For example, Wrestling/TripleH spent much of the Self Destruction DVD blaming his squash at the Warrior's hands at Wrestlemania on the latter's backstage politicking, but backtracked and later considered it an honor to work with him.

* LoveItOrHateIt: Christian put it best at the end of ''The Self Destruction Of The Ultimate Warrior'' by saying "Love him or hate him, or whatever, everyone remembers the Ultimate Warrior."

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: How would the face of wrestling be different today, if Vince's original plans for the Warrior had worked out?

** Warrior's HOF contract would have had him making multiple appearances following Wrestlemania XXX. Sadly, we only got one before he died.

* RunningGag: In re TheOtherDarrin on the main page: This created an early one on the {{Usenet}} newsgroup [=rec.sport.pro-wrestling=] that said, "he died and was replaced by Steve [=DiSalvo=]". The gag [[Memes/ProfessionalWrestling took on a life of its own]] and when some new poster would ask, "Who is <Wrestler X>?", some joker would answer, "Steve [=DiSalvo=]."

* ShoutOut: "I was sent in a capsule from a place long from here", is a either a reference to Franchise/{{Superman}}, or another bit of rambling nonsense.
** It's Warrior. Definitely nonsense.
*** [[TakeAThirdOption Why not both?]]

* BaseBreaker: One of the biggest. As if the ''Self-Destruction'' [=DVD=], and the reaction to it, wasn't enough evidence.[[note]] According to Jericho, WWE wrestlers were ordered to bury him every chance they got. Of course, that changed the second Warrior signed to come back for the Hall of Fame and the ''Self-Destruction'' DVD was put out of print immediately, so make of those interviews what you will. [[/note]]

** "[[HeteronormativeCrusader Queering... doesn't make the world work!]]" The point he was apparently making was that humanity would die out if every person was gay. While true in a facile, bumper-sticker sort of way[[note]]Homosexuals are as intelligent as any other random sample of humans, so while the sexual attraction might not be there even an all-homosexual society would presumably accept the need for procreation.[[/note]], what makes it homophobic was the ludicrous way he tried using this SlipperySlopeFallacy to justify banning homosexuality altogether.

**The fact that he spent much of his hall of fame weekend making a conscious effort to mend some bridges and make peace with a lot of people he was at odds with no doubt has a lot to do with this. Ted DiBiase, one of Warrior's biggest critics on the Self Destruction DVD, utterly laments the fact that he never got the chance to speak with Warrior that weekend.

* DyingMomentOfAwesome: His surprisingly intelligible promo the night before his death, essentially having the message of "I wouldn't have been this star if it wasn't for the fans. Even after my death my fire will live on within you."
