Al Wilson. Torrie's dad. If you missed that angle be thankful.

And given the oppertunity I'd do exactly the same thing Beth Phoenix did to Melina in number seven.

I've been hearing a lot of discussion that the Ultimate Warrior doesn't have a place in the WWE Hall of Fame. Was he a good wrestler? Nog really. Were his promos nonsense? Yeah, pretty much. Did attendance take a dive when he was champ? Apparently. Is he an all around douche the way he fucked the WWE around? Yeah, maybe. But I think he has a place in the Hall of Fame. If Koko B. Ware is in there I think he should be too.

Opinions?

Anyone who thinks The Ultimate Warrior doesn't belong in the WWE hall of fame is either too young to remember his first run with the WWF or just a complete moron.

From '88-'92 the guy was insanely over as a face, sold tons of merch and had good runs as both IC and WWF champ. In fact, in the whole history of the IC title, it never meant more than when Warrior had it and went in to the Wrestlemania 6 main event against Hogan in a title for title match. Think about that for a minute, the IC champ was challenging the world champ in the main event of wrestlemania. That will never happen again and is a true testament to how popular the Warrior was and how he was able to make his character work so well.

The crowd always went nuts for him back then. The top faces in the WWE today wish they could get half the pop Warrior did during his entrance. Daniel Bryan has come pretty close though. Yeah, he couldn't wrestle for shit but having charisma and a larger than life character has always been the most important thing in pro wrestling. Sure, it's awesome if you know every hold there is and can pull them off flawlessly but it means nothing in the end without charisma and personality which the Warrior was overflowing with. His promos never made any sense but they fit the character perfectly. He was so over that no matter how out there whatever he said was, the fans didn't care and still loved him.

One of the most unique characters and person for that matter, to ever perform in the WWF. He deserves to be in the hall of fame as much as anybody.

Is Warrior a nutcase, yes.

Does he deserve to be in HOF, yes.

Should we give him the mic to talk, no.

I think Vince and Trips know what they're in for by giving the Warrior a live mic at the induction. If they weren't cool with it then they wouldn't have bothered putting him in. They know the fans will want to hear some insane speech and will feel ripped off if they don't get one from him. I'm not sure about Vince but I think Trips is cool enough and a big enough wrestling fan that he will probably be laughing if Warrior's speech gets too crazy.

Don't forget, Warrior is from "parts unknown" maybe that's how they all talk there.

Yeah but remember the last time a speech got out of control, JR lost his job.

Here's the next question: Jake "the Snake" Roberts is rumored to go in this year too. The same detractors are saying that Jake should go in over (essentially "main event") the Warrior. How do you feel about that?

I think both are main event quality inductees. I would put them in different years. But if it has to be the same year...I really don't know. I'm leaning towards Jake.

When he does his speech Vince will be hanging over the guy operating the sound board.

"TURN IT OFF, TURN IT OFF, TURN THAT SON OF A BITCH OFF AND DELETE HIM FROM THE DVD"

"AND FIRE JIM ROSS, THIS WAS THAT SON OF A BITCHES IDEA".

Other than Jake and Warrior, I can't think of anymore to induct this year. Probably no one *too* important since they already have two huge stars.

If they do both Jake and Warrior, they need to include the vignettes of Jake "training" warrior for the dark side and Warrior vomiting all over the place. Oh man, I miss my childhood.

HE'S GONNA...HE'S GONNA...HE'S GONNA PUKE! HE'S GONNA PUKE!
