Jim Ross On Why He Didn’t Like Dealing With The Ultimate Warrior


During a recent episode of “Grilling JR”, Jim Ross discussed the multitude of reasons that he didn’t like working with The Ultimate Warrior. Here are the highlights:

On The Warrior Being Difficult:

I think he was a giant pain in the ass from day one. And again, ‘Well, JR is speaking bad of the dead.’ Well, OK, look, Conrad asked me a question, we’re talking about a journey here and the Warrior plays a part in that journey to some degree. He had a massive ego, knowing that he was not highly skilled, knowing that his number one selling point was his physique and his charisma that largely was created through music and lights and pyro and things of that nature, and he wasn’t a good person in my view, that’s my opinion.

On Not Liking The Way He Spoke In Front Of Women:

I thought that he used extremely course and abusive language in front of women of all ages, I thought that was ridiculous, I’ve seen it with my own eyes, I’m not bullshitting or telling somebody’s story that I heard, this is not rumor and innuendo, this ain’t Bruce, I’m telling you what I saw, and I didn’t think the guy was a good person. But he always seemed to be at the center of controversy, which is not always good, and he was always seemingly looking for that easy payday. So I didn’t have a lot of respect for the Ultimate Warrior, to be honest with you. I’m sad that he passed, I’m glad he got his moment in the sun before he died, I really am, for his fans sake and his family, I’m sad that he left two beautiful daughters and a lovely wife upon his death, but you have to be honest.

On His Lawsuit Against The WWE:

He wasn’t a good guy. Anytime there was a lawsuit with him involved, I always was cheering for the other guys, because I just thought he was looking for a payday and it was as simple as that, and had little to no respect for our business.
