Myth – The (Original) Ultimate Warrior Died And Was Replaced
There has been a longstanding urban legend in the wrestling world that the original Ultimate Warrior died and was replaced in the early 90’s.
It sounds ridiculous but it all stems back to when Warrior returned to WWE at Wrestlemania VIII. Some fans believe that the original Ultimate Warrior died and was replaced with a look-a-like based on his appearance.
Reasons why people think it is true:
- The Ultimate Warrior returned with much different hair.
- His physique was much less impressive than before.
- He was worse in the ring than before.
Warrior shot down the rumors in an interview with The Good Man Project:
“Yes, being dead is one of the many urban legends, falsehoods, mischaracterizations, what have you, about me. Nothing much I can do if people want to remain ignorant. I’ve had an Internet presence since ’96-’97 so it has been easy for a long time to find out the truth. Of course my former employers have worked hard and spent a great deal of time and money over the years to fabricate and spread lies, all of which have helped to keep rumors and other nonsense alive”
This is untrue but is an urban legend that has existed in the wrestling world for decades. Sadly, Warrior passed away on April 8th, 2014.
