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."

Freakin McMahon, you have TWO HOURS to do the greatest tribute ever to one of the GREATEST WRESTLING ENTERTAINERS EVER. I love Macho, love him as the good guy, hated him as the bad guy, he could push that envelope no matter what he did.

AMEN to that Todd, Majestik, Carl, ! Why anyone would believe this piece of trash is beyond me. I'm honestly amazed he is alive.


For those who don't know "The Ultimate Warrior" has been not in his...right mind for a very long time. I'll leave it at that. For those who want to know, look it up.

Why is there so much wrestling crap on this site? Nobody cares about it along with the trash talk that's been going on for years in the NBA. The fans are just as bad and always have been.

Amen, Missy. Think about it too. He hasn't been heard from or in the news until Macho passes away? AGain, a fame WHORE who's fifteen minutes of fame lasts a total of FIVE YEARS comes out the woodwork. If this guy is all that and a bag of chips why hasn't he been ASKED BACK to the WWE since he was fired? His stint in the WCW last less than a year because he was such a freakin' DIVA.

STFU, Ultimate Warrior, your time is done. I'm gonna be REALLY disgusted if he shows up on WWE tonight.

BTW, Jim Hellwig/Ulitmate warrior, what have you done with yourself since Wrestling told you to take a hike?

This guy is a NOBODY, gymnasium wrestling with 25 people in it doesn't qualify you as a "STAR" any more. I want to hear more from Hulk Hogan/Kevin Nash/Eric Bischoff/ Scott hall and everyone else that worked with him.

TMZ, where is your BRET HART, expose, of all the LONG TIME WWE wrestlers than WCW wrestlers his RESPONSE should be more important!!!!!

Didn't know you could take steroids with Coffee, but I guess anything is possible. I do believe steroid use has been linked to heart problems.

Sorry he died so young, but is anyone really surprised?
