#121 – Ultimate Warrior

There was no one else like him in the world of professional wrestling  - The Ultimate Warrior. Dre and the Black Cat sit down to talk about the icon mere days after his passing and days after seeing him live in New Orleans and review two matches from his career. The first is his cage match with Rick Rude at SummerSlam 1990 for the WWF Heavyweight championship and the second is possibly his very first TV appearance with Sting in the mid-80s when he was simply known as Jim Hellwig and teamed with a young Steve Borden and were known as the Freedom Fighters. Please support the Old School Wrestling Podcast by visiting flairchop.com to purchase our book “The OSWP 500,” the collected volumes of the first 75 episodes, an OSWP t-shirt, or one of our beautiful posters.
