Woa, the Ultimate Warrior is a Conservative commentator and speaker?
Iknew the guy went batshit, but not this far off the deep end.

Life Away from the Ring
Warrior officially retired from wrestling in 1999, and for a short time ran a youth center called Warrior University (now bankrupt). He has found a new career as a conservative speaker and commentator, denouncing left-wing politics. Most notably, mentioning that "queering doesn't make the world work" during a speech given by Warrior at the University of Connecticut led to the UConn College Republicans issuing apologies to several campus organizations for the Warrior's behavior. In 2005, he and his company Ultimate Creations Inc. attempted to sue Richard Kyanka of Something Awful for supposedly libelling him on an Awful Link of the Day. The case was never brought to court. Warrior has since fired three of his staff, including his Director of Communications and Website Admin.

10. well, he never was too sharp in the first places
he's maybe beyond the "ultimate" stage of idiocy at this point.

2. I'd heard he'd found religion...
...must have found the Jerry Falwell kind.

3. is anyone surprised

Now, Macho Man, there was a well-balanced individual.

5. the Macho Man vs Ultimate Warrior feud was one of the best ever....
Nobody could understand what the hell either one of them said or were talking about, but it was still pretty entertaining, lol.

4. Somebody posted about that before
I read some of it on his website. He's got some interesting opinions to say the least...

11. Go for it. You might get a few laughs.
I figure it's better than reading gossip. If you post dumb remarks on your website, you've got nobody to blame but yourself.

8. I used to like him when I was about 14 or so
then Curt Hennig came along and I liked his style much better. Got more into guys who could actually wrestle, like Hennig, Bret Hart, etc.

However, I am considering changing my name to "Warrior." He was dead on sane when he did that. (sarcasm button, where are you?)

13. Mick is a great guy.....
JBL is another crazy RWer, but I still like watching him wrestle. He's entertaining as hell.

Foley Rules!

17. I heard JBL
on Tammy Bruce a few months ago, he was filling in for her for a week. He spent most of the time talking about the immigration and boarder control. I was impressed he was calling for every vehicle to get 40+ mpg and a few other more moderate things, so i can still watch him on TV without getting sick.

14. Chris Nowinski too...
Not as well known, but he is a Harvard graduate, and gave a bit of an anti-war rant on Raw once.
