    Warrior (born James Brian "Jim" Hellwig[2] on June 16, 1959) is a retired American professional wrestler. He is best known for his appearances in the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s as the Ultimate Warrior, during which time he won the WWF World Heavyweight Championship and pinned Hulk Hogan in the main event of WrestleMania VI. Hellwig legally changed his name to Warrior in 1993. Warrior retired from professional wrestling in 1999 and embarked on a public speaking career. On June 25, 2008 he returned to wrestle one final match, and defeated Orlando Jordan in Barcelona, Spain in a match booked by the Italian Nu-Wrestling Evolution promotion. There is currently ongoing discussion as to whether or not Warrior will return to the ring again. During the match against Orlando Jordan, Warrior wrestled with a blown-out knee.

    Warrior had a good run of about two years, but flopped when they brought him back in 1996 also helped kill business in WCW in 1998. Snuka was a huge star for about a decade and created one of the most memorable moments in WWF history.

    Warrior also had like three good matches ever, and those had tons of planning (and in the case of the Hogan match, rehearsing). Warrior also had several of the worst matches ever. Snuka was pretty good in the ring most of the time and was rarely horrible.

    Snuka wins.
