The Ultimate Warrior in WCW was probably considered a missed opportunity for the company in 1998. Ultimate Warrior, whose name still commanded the excitement of fans, debuted to start a feud with Hulk Hogan, which ended finally in disaster.
In his 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff he answered questions about working with Warrior in 1998, and how he got into WCW. Bischoff argued that even though The Ultimate Warrior was out, he was passionate about it. Even more, Hulk Hogan he warmed to the idea.
Hulk Hogan believed there was money in Ultimate Warrior
Eric Bischoff said things at the time were very diverse and “shark infested.” Bischoff explained that something Hulk Hogan said helped him decide how to approach the Warrior’s situation.
“Hulk was like, look, the guy is a main case, he’s hard to manage, he’s creatively hard to manage but I think there’s money.
Fans had speculated that Hogan’s only reason for fighting Ultimate Warrior in WCW was to “get his victory.” Yet, in the end, the feud went nowhere, with its match in Halloween Havoc critically criticized and being a total disappointment.
