    Just got finished watching the new Ultimate Warrior “Ultimate Legend” documentary that premiered on the Network last night. Excellent. Just excellent stuff. As well as heartbreaking. It’s a 1 hour career documentary that chronicles everything from breaking in with Rick Bassman to the Blade Runners to Dingo Warrior to the WWF and his subsequent departures to the steroid scandal to his many returns to his WCW run to the controversy of the Self Destruction DVD. In between is footage of him all WrestleMania weekend backstage as well as his meeting with HHH at Titan Towers. Lots of great footage including him and Hogan burying the hatchet backstage at Mania. Talking heads include Vince, Hogan, HHH, Stephanie, Sting(brand new footage), Cena and many others. But seeing Vince McMahon crying when talking about his passing was tough to watch. HHH also had to catch himself a few times. I think the hardest part was seeing his daughters talking to the cameras backstage following his appearance on Raw. That was just so sad in hindsight and then seeing them tell him how great he did when he walked through the curtain was also heartwrenching.

    I highly recommend anyone with the Network to check it out. This would easily rank up there as one of the best documentaries they’ve ever done. If nothing else, purely from an emotional standpoint. Very well done.

      Also, while there is some footage of him talking about his matches taken from the Ultimate Collection DVD, there is brand new footage of him talking about his career as well. It looks like it was recorded not too long before Mania weekend.

      • David says:

        Definitely recommend checking it out. Had to chance to watch it last night and it was pretty awesome and quite emotional. You can tell Vince and Warrior had a great relationship and both seemed happier than ever during HOF weekend. It was quite sad seeing Vince in tears when mentioning his last picture taken with Warrior and even he gave that signed book.

        Hard to believe they made it in the span of less than a week basically and very touching.

        • LP1 says:

          Agreed. WWE has been on fire with all the work they’ve done on the Network. Just all the shows from WrestleMania weekend alone was incredible. Between the Bryan documentary and now the Warrior documentary, this could be the new standard as far as how they present documentaries going forward. I expect we’ll see more camera crews following specific wrestlers on the road a lot more in the future. The question is if any of these documentaries will ever make it to DVD/BR.

          • David says:

            I wouldn’t be surprised if WWE release extended versions of the Daniel Bryan Journey and Warrior Ultimate Legend.

            I think WWE are going to put out a Daniel Bryan set later this year or next. Also i’m sure another Warrior set will be out with a full fledged documentary, as mentioned an extended version of Ultimate Legend. Reports are there is more unseen footage recorded with Warrior with guys like Hogan, HHH and Vince. So WWE are definitely going to be using that in the future.

  2. Steven says:

    I got that replaced CM Punk with Daniel Bryan autograph cards to what a waste of money it was! Its on a nasty thin bit of card , no number on it ( was only 100 ) and no certificate of authority to prove its real! no way was it worth a extra £14 or whatever it was.

  3. I actually purchased the Blu-Ray of Ultimate Warrior: The Ultimate Collection on Monday at Best Buy in Hartsdale, NY for about $30. I also got a few months back a 2-disc version of The Self Destruction Of The Ultimate Warrior from WrestleManiac1130 on YouTube. Glad I got both with me!

    Only 20 copies of The Ultimate Collection on Amazon, I really hope that I can find one after my birthday next May…

  5. Cody Schields says:

    I actually saw a new copy of “The Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior ” 2 disc version at an FYE store last summer. I already had a copy, but something was telling me to buy that one. Wish I would have purchased it now.

  6. Vintage Simon says:

    Speaking of The John Cena Experience, it’s being re-released as a single disc DVD here in the UK. It has a new green cover, tying in with his current merchandise colours. See here for the cover:

  7. David says:

    Not sure if anyone else noticed but the HHH documentary seems to short on the Network, its an 1 hour 56 minutes according to the description and the DVD/Blu-ray is 2 hours 7 minutes. Haven’t had a chance to re-watch on the Network but anyone you did know what is cut if you also own the DVD version? Seems pretty odd.

  8. number1jf says:

    Appears that the hairs on Batista’s shoulder have been covered up thankfully, they just looked odd.

  9. number1jf says:

    Crazy to think that a DVD sitting in my local FYE selling for $6.99 can bank over $40 right now.

    • Kenny says:

      It sucks that it takes something like a guy dying, but such is the nature with the secondary market. Demand goes up; so does the price. It is what it is.

    • AJ says:

      There’s also more interest because three days earlier he talked about the DVD excessively in his HOF speech.
