Julian Connelly looks at latest WWE and Wrestling releases in his regular review column: The Turnbuckle.
After 18 years out of the spotlight, Ultimate Warrior made his long-awaited return to WWE last year. Follow The Warrior’s homecoming in this moving documentary, as he prepares for his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, reflects on his career, and rebuilds old relationships.
With 30 minutes of unseen footage, it’s a fitting tribute to one of WWE’s most enigmatic Superstars!
So one year on from Warrior being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame a further Warrior DVD is released. Sadly as you will all be aware Warrior passed away four days after being inducted and accepted back into the WWE.
What is great about this release is that you get an updated story on disc one of the build up to the induction ceremony and WrestleMania last year. The tale is well told from numerous talking heads and there are a number of touching comments from Warriors wife and children. If you are a fan of the Ultimate warrior you will want to buy this release as it is a last farewell send off to the man.
That said for the casual viewer, who purchased the lengthly Warrior release where the tone was very different and really a much more negative and down story, to the way Warrior felt that WWE had treated him over the past 18 years. The main issue being this is essentially the same release over again with an update first disc, in that the matches are the same as the previous Warrior release, with a few exceptions and just the nicer final year and induction to the Hall of Fame.
As stated above if you love Warrior you will want to add this to your collection, however if you only have a passing interest and especially if you purchased the Warrior tale form last year then I would stay don’t bother.
On DVD & Blu-Ray from Monday 20th April 2015
