It was this guy. The Ultimate Warrior! He was exciting, energetic, mysterious and colorful. My 10 year old self thought he was the best. Looking back, he may not have been a great wrestler, but to me, he was a great entertainer and one of my childhood wrestling heroes.
I won this card in a Listia auction a few weeks back and it arrived recently. This card is so perfect for me in many ways. It reminds me of the many times watching his matches while I was growing up. It reminds me of how happy I was when I heard he would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last year. Most of all, it serves as a perfect final tribute to one of my heroes. For those who don't follow wrestling, Warrior was inducted on 4/5/14 as the card says, he was at Wrestlemania the next day, and made an appearance on Monday Night Raw the day after that(see video below). The next day, he was gone to Parts Unknown.
Rest in peace, Mr. Hellwig... your Warrior spirit will truly run on forever!
