Josh Reddick dresses like Ultimate Warrior for 'Intentional Talk' interview

Josh Reddick, MLB's foremost pro wrestling fan, unleashed his tribute to World Wrestling Entertainment icon Ultimate Warrior during Monday's episode of "Intentional Talk" on MLB Network.

Ultimate Warrior (aka James Hellwig) died on April 8 at age 54, a day after being inducted into WWE's Hall of Fame. Reddick had already changed his walk-up music to the Ultimate Warrior's theme song — and then delivered a walk-off single Saturday.

Monday, he took things quite a few steps further and dressed up like Ultimate Warrior, tassels and all. He sprinted out from centerfield before the interview, imitating the Ultimate Warrior's ring entrance

"I'm a huge wrestling buff, so why not?" Reddick said during his interview with hosts Chris Rose and Kevin Millar.

Joey Votto dressed as a Mountie on "Intentional Talk" was great and now Reddick as Ultimate Warrior? Who needs Halloween when we have "Intentional Talk" ballplayer interviews.
