The Ultimate Warrior Talks About WWE’s Current Product and Randy Savage
– The New York Daily News published an interview with The Ultimate Warrior. Here are some highlights:
If he watches the current product, and which wrestlers he enjoys watching: “I know some of the characters, but I don’t watch it. I like all the guys. I guess because I don’t know anybody, I like them all.
“You would think maybe I would go for a Ryback guy. He’s impressive. He’s a monster of a guy. I don’t go against him, but I’m indifferent. I know a little about CM Punk, in that he does his own thing. I’m inspired by people who do that in their own life. That they just do their own thing no matter what the consequences are.”
A road story with Randy Savage: “I always loved working with Randy. He was so intense. In public, he spoke like he did in his promos. I remember one time, he came out to stay with me in Arizona. And he was there for a couple days. We went out to eat one night. I said, ‘Randy, just do me a favor, don’t say anything. Just enjoy the food and we’ll go.’ Because we were going to go to the gym after.
“About a half-hour of being there, he said something about the food being good. It was all kinds of chatter going on, people talking. As soon as he said that to me, the whole place went absolutely totally dead silent. Everybody was leaning in their ear, trying to figure out where that voice came from. Then that was it, we were there signing autographs for the next two hours.”
