The wrestling midway was no stranger to controversy, thanks to comments made by Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake. In an impromptu interview with a local sports reporter, Brutus made some rather off-color comments about the Ultimate Warrior. James “Ultimate Warrior” Hellwig passed away earlier this year from heart complications.
“He’s one of those kinds of people that starts believing his own publicity and begins to alienate himself from people, not talking to people, thinks he is better than people, takes advantage of people, goes to his head.”
“That’s what happened to the guy, lost all respect for him, it’s a shame he had to die.”
“Look at me brother, I’m nowhere near dying. I take care of myself, I don’t do all that steroid shit and all that crap. I go to the gym and workout.”
The Barber went on discussing steroid use, even implying the Warrior initiated the practice.
“Back in those days, no, it [steroid use] wasn’t huge. Guys looked like wrestlers.”
“Then came Warrior, all jacked out.”
You can’t fault the retired wrestler for his feelings about Warrior, but why not show some tact? If I had to guess, steroid use didn’t start and end with the Warrior. Just let it go and respect the dead.
