Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick joined MLB Network's 'Intentional Talk,' and used the opportunity to honor recently fallen wrestling great The Ultimate Warrior.

Reddick is a long time wrestling fan, even challenging current WWE champion Daniel Bryan to a beard off (which he lost) last year.

The All-Star even went as far as to replicate Warrior's famous no-frills sprint to the ring as he entered the interview, although he admits he made sure to get a good stretch in beforehand. No word on whether he remembered to LOAD THE SPACESHIP WITH ROCKET FUEL.
