**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."

* DrugsAreBad: He never took a test while employed by the WWE, but he's been accused of using steroids throughout his career. He almost certainly did.

* DudeNotFunny: During his 2005 feud with WWE, he called Droz a cripple. For those who don't know, Droz was a WWE wrestler who was left a quadriplegic after a horrible botch during a match. Wrestling/JohnBradshawLayfield called Warrior a "piece of shit" in response.
** With the death of the Ultimate Warrior a DVD known as "The Self-destruction of the Ultimate Warrior" ''really'' doesn't suit well.

* CulturedWarrior[=/=]WarriorPoet: Sort of. He invented an entire philosophy out of whole cloth- Destrucity. It is both elegant in it's simplicity, and baffling in it's complexity.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foil}}: To Hulk Hogan- an intense and charismatic power wrestler with limited technical skill but huge crowd support. They even had similar move-sets, and Warrior's look was in many ways an exaggeration of Hogan's (long hair, tanned skin, body-builder physique).


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** Wrestling/{{Ted DiBiase}} ''alone'' [[http://thesmartmarks.com/old_site/artman/publish/article_683.shtml goes back and forth on the subject.]] [=DiBiase=] credits Warrior for trusting him to lead a match when they were both in Mid-South and says that Warrior was "tremendously dedicated to keeping his body in shape. That's about it." He says that Warrior was very calculating, rude to the fans, and repeatedly held Vince up for more money. This might explain Vince's notorious reticence with putting the belt on wrestlers who reside outside of his inner circle.

** [[Wrestling/TheSheepherders The Bushwhackers]] [[http://thesmartmarks.com/old_site/artman/publish/article_500.shtml said]] that they got along fine with Warrior because they knew him from the UWF, but that he would ignore fans who asked him for autographs when he was at the gym. They say that Warrior did that because he saw wrestling as a way to get paid for working out, and that he stopped after Vince told him that everybody signs autographs. They also give Rick Rude credit for helping Warrior learn how to work the right way.

* AntiHero: He's been described by Hogan as a "good guy character with a maniacal edge"


Added DiffLines:

** The Ultimate Warrior is still regarded one of the worst workers ''ever''; terrible attitude; held up Vince for money; an abysmal run in WCW; went on to make political speeches which amounted to homophobic propaganda (probably [[TheBarnum just to cash in]] on the pundit circuit like Beck and Coulter). During one address at the University of Connecticut, his appearance was met with protests and the speech itself was so offensive that the event was shut down prematurely. Did any of it matter in the long run? Nope. He touched wrestling fans -- a fanbase he genuinely loved --in a way few ever do.
