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

5/23/2011 3:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."

For those of you who weren't a part of the WWF back in the day, The Warrior speaks from his heart, he truly loved Randy and appreciated all that he did for him. All you have to is go to the Warrior's website and see the blog.

Anyone else get the feeling that "Coffee" is code for "Cocaine" ?!?!

So it was caffeine from coffee? Silly me, I was brainwashed by a bunch of cynics who told me they were on steroids and growth hormone. I guess if I drink more coffee, I will develop a powerful physique too like they had. On super duper grande to go!

I see you guys spend no money on editing or fact checking, not that I expected that you did. It was Wrestlemania 7 not 12. Maybe you should hire people with an understanding of Google and roman numerals.

when you look at all those pro wrestlers, you see guys with these comic book like physiques. it is known that hulk hogan was a roider and he was far from the only one. i would say it is a safe bet that all those guys a jacked up on roids. all those guys whose livings depend on having freakish, powerful physiques (football, wrestling, bodybuilding etc) are doing all the stuff they can get their ahnds on.
i remember arnold admitted that he used roids back during his bodybuilding years and then back around 2000 he had to have heart surgery. it is no surprise that the footballers and wrestlers die so much sooner than regular folk.

George Bush the First made Arnold Schwarzenegger Chairman of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. If Arnold was honest, he could have told all of America's school children that they could get to be big, fit and strong like he is if they do enough steroids, er, I mean, drink enough coffee like these wrestlers and Arnold did. LOL

Clearly there is to many people who have no clue on what "roids" does to you... its not coke or crank or coffee..

Thats not was fueling his oh yeah's and crap. He used COKE.. There is a video on youtube with mean jean laughing about one promo he came out with coke all over his face and he didn't want to clean up etc..

Randy was never that big and not into roids as much as warrior and others..

It was the 80's they all snorted coke and some did much much more roids than others. Now days its hgh and pain killers.

Yeah, probably 'jacked up' on more than that. Long term steroid use causes heart damage too. How many of these wrestlers are going to have to drop dead before more stringent regulations are put in place with 'REAL' drug testing instead of this 'warn them in advance' sort of testing?
