On the latest episode of “Something To Wrestle”, Bruce Prichard discussed the Warrior’s feud with “Ravishing” Rick Rude. Ross revealed that Rude hated working with the Warrior but still tried to get him over nonetheless. Here are the highlights:
On How Rude Felt About The Feud:
Rude hated working with Warrior. But Rude made good money working with Warrior, and Rude knew that was his job, to get him over. And that’s how Rude looked at it.
On Rude Trying To Get The Warrior Over:
Of course Rude, this [SummerSlam] is that journey to get Warrior into a position of, you know, drawing and make him be the man. So much so that after this, when Rude would take his hiatus, Rude knew that coming back, that that was going to be his job, to get Warrior over as champion. And Rude took it seriously. Rude looked at it as, this was his job, to make this guy look good. And I think that Rick Rude, without a doubt, is probably — if you were going to pick one person that made the Ultimate Warrior, you have to look at Rick Rude #1, Honky Tonk Man is up there. Because Honky just, you know, did the right job, the right way the first night in a year ago at SummerSlam. And Rude did it all the way through, and made it, consistently made him believable. And put him on the map. And then there’s Andre the Giant.
