Ultimate Warrior: Macho Man Was a Coffee Freak!!!

The Ultimate Warrior just released an emotional video tribute to his fallen friend, Randy "Macho Man" Savage -- and finally revealed the source of their crazy energy ... GALLONS OF COFFEE!

Warrior -- who famously forced Savage into "retirement" by defeating him at a "Career Ending Match" at Wrestlemania VII -- said he and Randy used to get so jacked up on java before getting into the ring, they would often compete to see who could down more Joe.

In fact, Warrior says, one time they sucked down 5 GALLONS of the black stuff before an event.

During the emotional video, Warrior said Savage "inspired a generation" ... adding, "I was so fortunate to be in so many great events with him."



He concluded, "Thanks for the memories Randy, thanks for the memories."

5 gallons, really? Is it even physically possible to consume 5 gallons of coffee or any type of fluids?

OK...They shared 5 gallons of coffee, that's still a lot of coffee. A very nice tribute by the Warrior, he seems like a nice guy!

5 gallons of liquid would cause an electrolyte imbalance and kill you.

How about steroid related heart damage? None of the wrestlers are talking about that.

Anything Warrior says needs to be taken with a grain of salt.

Five gallons of coffee? I don't believe it. People say anything these days--doesn't mean the public will swallow it.

Okay, my being the EXPERT on Wrestling. WHY would TMZ get this freakazoid's opinion on anything?\

Warrior was so INTO himself he changed his REAL NAME, legally to "Ulitmate Warrior" Second of all, look at past history, NO ONE THAT WAS A STAR liked this guy, talk to mean gene okerland he has stated, time and again, that he NEVER understood Warrior, go back to his T.V. shots, this guy is so full of himself he doesn't know what is fantasy and what is reality. HOW SAD that a HAS-BEEN must make a comment about someone that made a name for himself.

RIP Macho, you are loved, and will be loved by those that met you and followed you!
