They still look the same. lol
i didn’t realize Warlord was still in the business.
Didn’t warlord break his back in some type of car accident back in mid 90s
Here’s what Wikipedia had on Warlord –
Injury and retirement
After leaving the WWF for the independent circuit, Szopinski wrestled two matches in World Championship Wrestling in 1996, one of which was a tag team match where he and Vailahi reunited as the masked Super Assassins. However, he was forced to retire from wrestling due to suffering neck injuries in a car accident involving a Pizza Hut delivery van in 1996.
After attempting a comeback in 2001, Szopinski was sidelined yet again after suffering severe leg damage in a motorcycle accident. During his recovery, he retired from wrestling and began training as a security guard and started providing his services for Relief Group International, an auto relief group. He soon extended his services into bodyguarding, and worked alongside celebrities such as 50 Cent, Thomas Jones and Kimbo Slice, the latter of whom nicknamed Szopinski “The Wall”.
Barbarian has gained some poundage, and not in the right places. Warlord looks the same, but he’s not as broad as he once was, and that’s not saying he’s still not a big dude.
and the crowd goes mild…
Still look pretty good. I always wanted more out of the Warlord’s solo run in WWF. I-C strap or something. Think I was a mark for his armor and scepter…
These guys had a memorable run against the Road Warriors, and a great look back in those tag-team heavy days.
the barbarian should be in tna as his daughters manager
Who wins the elimination chamber for the vacant IC strap?
Will you watch ROH on Destination America?
Should Teddy Long be inducted into the GERWECK.NET Hall of Fame?
