Absolutely. He was the original 'most electrifying man in sports entertainment' before The Rock.

This was one of the first matches I ever watched:

It perfectly sums up the Warrior, as most of his matches were under 5 minutes long, but between his awesome entrance, and essentially being unbeatable, his appearances in the ring were maybe the most entertaining minutes of watching Wrestling that existed for me in the 90's. Until Stone Cold became big anyway. Stone Cold's entrance and how he could get the crowd so fired up was unmatched, but that conversation is for another thread.
