Mayer Nissium of Digital Spy is featuring an interview with the Ultimate Warrior where he addresses the possiblity of heading into the WWE Hall of Fame and his interest in it.
Warrior provided a lengthy response not ruling anything out, but that the true story of his career would need to be told first instead of the version released on DVD back in 2005.
“The simple answer is they’ve got to tell the right story. That’s a possibility. Being in the Hall of Fame – Ultimate Warrior being inducted into the Hall of Fame, or me standing there at the Hall of Fame participating in it – is not going to mean anything to my goals in my life and the kind of quality of life I’m going to have, what kind of things I’m going to do, how productive I’m going to be as I move on throughout my life.
I only get this one life, so I’m not going to sit in my own pile of poop and feel sorry that I’m not in the Hall of Fame. The Ultimate Warrior character relative to professional wrestling or WWE, he’s definitely a Hall of Famer. He’s a Hall of Famer whether he gets into the Hall of Fame or not.
They need to tell the right story. They need to tell the right story for the fans. It’s been interesting – years ago they started rewriting the history of the character. Then they came out with the DVD [2005’s controversial The Self-Destruction of The Ultimate Warrior]. I see the people who love The Ultimate Warrior. They’re grown up now they’re out in the world and they’ve got their own kids. I’ve seen them, they fight.
“They don’t sit back and take it anymore when people are on a bandwagon and spew out all kinds of stuff that’s not based on any factual information or anything like that about what kind of impression the Ultimate Warrior made in the business. So they need to tell the right story, and that would be a way to open the door to talking about doing the Hall of Fame.”
