Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick dressed up as the Ultimate Warrior for a recent interview with Chris Rose and Kevin Millar of the MLB Network’s “International Talk.”
Reddick, who is a big fan of professional wrestling, donned an Ultimate Warrior mask and t-shirt for the interview, as well as bicep tassels and wrist bands. Along with being decked out in full Warrior garb, Reddick also sprinted his way from the bullpen to the crew’s set up for the interview honoring Warrior’s classic ring entrance.
Warrior, formerly Jim Hellwig, passed away on April 8. His sudden death occurred just three days after he was immortalized in the annals of WWE history by being inducted into the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame class. His last WWE appearance was during the April 7 edition of “Monday Night Raw,” where he eerily prophesied his abrupt passing during an address to the WWE Universe.
Editor’s Note: Josh Reddick only did what most of us did as children…on camera…as an adult. There’s a little “mark” in all of us.
