He's widely considered crazy and delusional in the wrestling community--I mean, check these YouTube search results--and his in-ring skills have often been criticized, but there is no denying that the Ultimate Warrior was one of the WWF/WWE's biggest stars.

Now, thanks to Warrior's new partnership with the WWE (he'll be appearing in a WWE video game for the first time in a long while after several falling outs with Vince McMahon), official footage has surfaced of the Warrior's debut match from 1987, against a jobber named Terry Gibbs.

Footage from this match has been online since 2007, but only in very poor quality (a guy basically recorded his TV with a camcorder). The full match can now finally be seen in all its glory. http://youtu.be/LpJi1PZyhSE
