Another sad day for wrestling fans as Joseph “Animal” Laurinaitis has passed on to the great squared circle in the sky.
Animal, along with partner Hawk, made up the dominating Tag Team partnership known as the Legion of Doom (and also the Road Warriors cuz wresting is confusing).
The biggest compliment you could say about Animal and Hawk is that after the LoD arrived on the scene there were roughly a thousand copycat acts trying to steal their style.
With Hawk having passed back in 2003, Animal’s death closes the book on another chapter in 1980s WWF glory.
RIP in Peace Hawk and Animal. Drop that Doomsday Device in heaven.
