Ultimate Warrior in the Ultimate Arena

Warrior Jim Hellwig, the pro wrestler known as the "Ultimate Warrior," has had a lot of tough fights in his career.  His motto is "Show no mercy."  But he'll now be trying to use his famous Gorilla Press slam in a real tough venue:  Arizona state court.

Seems when Warrior split up from World Wrestling Entertainment, the parties reached a settlement over who owned the intellectual property rights in the persona.  When the WWE released a DVD called The Self-Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior,(left) the wrestler yelled foul, claiming breach of a mutual non-disparagement clause in the contract..  Viewers say the DVD shows that Warrior is "crazier than a crazy straw . . . and that's pretty crazy."
