Well, this is weird. If you're old enough to remember way back when the WWE was the WWF, you'll recall a man who called himself The Ultimate Warrior wreaked chest-pounding havoc on the world of fake professional wrestling. Now that his days in the ring are over, The Warrior has found himself a new career path: motivational life coach for musicians.

Below you can watch the complete first episode of "The Warrior Show," a new program on BlankTV aimed at self-improvement and led by the formerly face-painted acrobat wrestler. The Asking Alexandria crew were invited to be the first official guests on the series, and in doing so were subjected to a critical analysis of dealing with life on the road, problems at home, drinking and their hard-partying lifestyle. Then came the corrective training.

In the episode, the band is forced to be brutally honest about their own self-destructive ways – complete with footage of frontman Danny Worsnop’s intoxicated meltdown onstage. The band's cool-guy resistance to The Warrior's methods made for a few uncomfortable moments, but in the end the wide-eyed man "from parts unknown" alpha male took command and helped set the boys on a stronger course for success. 

The pilot episode of "The Warrior Show" was created by Warrior, Ash Avildsen of Sumerian Records, and Frankie Nasso of Nova Entertainment Group. Find out more at the show's Facebook page.
