Tomorrow at 8:00 PM Eastern Time, A&E will continue its Biography series on some of pro wrestling’s biggest stars. This latest profile is on The Ultimate Warrior. In the pro wrestling world, various fans and industry people would say that the sports entertainer was a complex individual in and outside the ring.
In the preview for tomorrow night’s Biography episode, WWE CEO Vince McMahon says on camera that he and The Ultimate Warrior had a great relationship, which was something nobody knew.
