ULTIMATE WARRIOR
THE ROAD TO WWF STARDOM

60 mins

Before Jim Hellwig became WWF superstar "The Ultimate Warrior", he experienced some humble beginnings. This compilation covers Hellwig's earliest wrestling days as part of Memphis Wrestling where he wrestled under his own name along with Steve Borden (Sting) as the "Freedom Fighters". It is there, they turned heel and wrestled as "The Bladerunners" (Rock and Sting) - where things really took off for the two. Hellwig's career later took him to the UWF for a short while (still as part of the Bladerunners) before going it alone to World Class Championship Wrestling as the "Dingo Warrior". It was there as a single's powerhouse that he began to show his potential of being a true wrestling superstar
