“My biggest problem with Jim Hellwig is his lack of respect for our business because he’s not shown that to anybody. The first time I met him was when he and Steve Borden – Sting – came into Mid-South as a tag team. Warrior was never a great wrestler; he was a good character. Yes, he had a lot of charisma. But, unless he had someone in the ring, like me, or any number of other guys who could work, to lead him, he couldn’t work … How many Warrior matches have you seen? And how many are the same? All.”
DiBiase the commented on the topic of Warrior being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class.
“In my opinion, the Hall of Fame isn’t just about how good you are as a wrestler, it’s about your total contribution to the industry. Knowing his history, it’s kind of like he came in and used the business and everybody else in it.”
