Hall of Famer Has Harsh Words for Ultimate Warrior; He “Was Never a Great Wrestler”

Mike Killam

WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase had harsh words for the Ultimate Warrior on this week's PWTorch livecast, revisiting the heat between the two that started years ago when the Million Dollar Man was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. 

"My biggest problem with Jim Hellwig is his lack of respect for our business because he's not shown that to anybody. The first time I met him was when he and Steve Borden – Sting – came into Mid-South as a tag team. Warrior was never a great wrestler; he was a good character. Yes, he had a lot of charisma. But, unless he had someone in the ring, like me, or any number of other guys who could work, to lead him, he couldn't work … How many Warrior matches have you seen? And how many are the same? All."

DiBiase does not want to see Warrior inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame stating, "In my opinion, the Hall of Fame isn't just about how good you are as a wrestler, it's about your total contribution to the industry. Knowing his history, it's kind of like he came in and used the business and everybody else in it."
