One Man, Two Moments Vol 3

This installment of One Man, Two Moments continues the trend of presenting two related workers.  In this case, Sting and Warrior teamed as Powerteam USA and then the Blade Runners before finding their greatest success as singles stars.

Ultimate Warrior
Warrior's sanity is certainly in question these days, but this guy was an absolute phenomenon at his peak.  You will notice that most casual wrestling fans especially in a certain age range all fondly remember the Warrior, his physique and the face paint. 

Starrcade 97 should have been it, but it was overbooked and Hogan's ego interfered.  It's really as simple as that.  WCW got cute and tried to milk the angle a bit more, but WCW fans had waited patiently and they were not rewarded with what looked to be an epic main event.  This match really captures the essence of WCW unfortunately.
