Or else you are gonna be so disappointed.
((I just found out James Hellwig, infamous for his WWE-persona Ultimate Warrior, died at age 54…
It is probably strange to most of you that a silly Swede like me knows anything about American Wrestling, especially of the late 80’s/early 90’s era. I was a kid at the time and my uncle who had lived in the States was a huge Wrestling-fan. Watching the Iron Sheik, Hulk Hogan and of course the Ultimate Warrior was surreal to me. Fascinating even. I never got into wrestling any further because it lacked the same spirit as those crazy ass matches and crazy ass plots between them. Holy shit! I still have VHS-copies from my uncle’s collection from that old classic Wrestlemania-era.
Hellwig himself was a crazy motherfucker with a whole lot of controversy surrounding him. From his conspiracy nut shtick to his political views, I didn’t like him. But as the Ultimate Warrior, he was my Wrestlemania childhood. I watched his speech from the Monday Night Raw just a few hours ago, where he took on the persona for the first time in many many years. And just a few hours after he made that speech, he died.
I… have nothing else to say. My thoughts go out to his family. Load up the spaceship with the rocket fuel and skronk on, dude. Rest in peace.))
(Since we’re all talking about ships Im just gonna say
"Our supply lines keep getting raided, none of us have eaten in over a day and some of the guys are giving me weird looks but I still have that rock I found! At least steve does not need to eat."
