Passion, even when it stems from hate and anger, is still passion. John Cena haters know what I'm talking about, right guys?
Let's take a look at some of the stars this week…
[Ultimate] Warrior – One Step Up
Who hasn't enjoyed the latest updates regarding WWE — Vince, specifically — and Warrior mending the fence that has long separated the two from doing business? I certainly have.
Warrior might be a nutjob. He certainly wasn't the best "wrestler". You could put together an entire DVD set with his mishaps. But he's The Ultimate Freakin' Warrior!
I mark out just thinking about his entrance.
As a fan growing up, I didn't care about the things going on behind the scenes, or what type of employee or colleague Warrior was. I still don't, honestly.
Back then, I looked up to him — wished I could be him. Today, I respect him for his contributions. He was a positive part of my childhood.
Politics likely kept Warrior from being the star Hogan was long term. Even still, for a short period of time, there were fans like me who considered him every bit the equal to "the immortal one". Hell, I think I favored him over Hogan even.
DVD work, a few live appearances (no wrestling!), and of course, the Hall of Fame — I'll take it all. And I expect it to happen, as long as Warrior doesn't say anything stupid between now and then.
