DDP (Diamond Dallas Page) recalled how The Ultimate Warrior had words of praise for him and Goldberg backstage before WCW Halloween Havoc 1998.
In the main event of the pay-per-view, Goldberg defeated DDP to retain the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. In the final match of the night, Hulk Hogan defeated Warrior in a long-awaited WrestleMania VI rematch.
to speak on That ’90s Wrestling Podcast, DDP said that Warrior wanted to meet him and Goldberg on the day of the show. The WWE legend told the WCW Main-Eventers that this was the reason he returned to wrestling after a two-year absence.
“He asked to talk to me and Goldberg,” DDP said. “And we were in some big arena, I can’t remember where he was, so we both got on a little golf cart and we went to where Warrior’s locker room was. When he opened the door, I mean he Was the cutest guy. He gave us both a big hug and he’s like, ‘I’m back because of you two.’ He said, ‘You guys are having a lot of fun there.’ He’s like, ‘I had to be a part of it.’ So it was a really cool thing to hear from him.”
The Ultimate Warrior made a name for itself in WWE between 1987 and 1992 and had another short run with the company in 1996. His return to the ring with WCW in 1998 lasted only three matches.
