You can call them The Road Warriors or you can call them The Legion Doom. Either way, it doesn’t matter. I completely miss these guys. I think wrestling today is as good as its ever been.

Pro wrestling legend and WWE Hall of Famer George ‘The Animal’ Steele has passed away aged 79, having reportedly suffered kidney failure.
Born William James Myers in Detroit, he became a teaching and wrestling coach after a promising football career was cut short following knee issues, and entered the wrestling business in the 1960s, initially as masked wrestler The Student.
