Aw man, sad news! Wrestling legend GEORGE 'THE ANIMAL' STEELE has passed away at the age of 79.
He was one of my absolute favorite wrestlers and a great entertainer - the dude had a green tongue and would eat turnbuckle stuffing!!
via bleacher report:
Although Steele was a villain for much of his career, he turned face in 1985 and went on to engage in a feud with Randy "Macho Man" Savage.
Steele lost an Intercontinental Championship match to Savage at WrestleMania 2 and was in Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat's corner when he beat Savage for the title at WrestleMania 3 in what is widely considered one of the greatest bouts in wrestling history.
1937 - 2017
