ABC's 'The Goldbergs' to pay tribute to the Ultimate Warrior

ABC’s hit sitcom ‘The Goldbergs’ airs on Tuesdays at 9pm/8pm central and takes everyone who actually remembers living through the 1980′s on a blast from the past.

The cast includes former Reno-911 star Wendi McLendon-Covey as Beverly Goldberg, Sean Giambrone as Adam Goldberg, Troy Gentile as Barry Goldberg, Hayley Orrantia as Erica Goldberg, George Segal as Albert Soloman and comedian Jeff Garlin as Murray Goldberg.

Not only does it bring back hit music from the 80′s, but it brings back the ridiculous clothes, movies, music and hairstyles. Now an episode coming up on May 6 will be professional wrestling themed. You know, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Hulk Hogan, Big John Studd, The Rockers, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Macho Man Randy Savage, Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat, The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase, Sgt. Slaughter, The Honky Tonk Man, Don Muraco, Tito Santana, Rick Rude, and The Ultimate Warrior.

I apologize if I got carried away, but there are so many stars that wrestled in the 80′s.

According to, The Goldbergs will not only have a wrestling themed episode but they’ll be paying tribute to the Ultimate Warrior. Warrior passed away a couple weeks ago after being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and made an appearance during both WrestleMania XXX and WWE RAW.

Warrior was one of the biggest stars of the then WWF. His biggest moment was defeating Hulk Hogan for the WWF/E Championship in a Champion vs Champion match at WrestleMania VI.
