Wrestling World Reacts To The Death Of Road Warrior Animal

Share

The WWE star was one half of legendary wrestling tag-team the Legion of Doom along with his partner Road Warrior Hawk in the 1980s and 90s.

Really saddened to wake up to this news today - the passing of my friend, Joe Laurinaitis (on the left) aka ROAD WARRIOR ANIMAL. Whenever you ask pro wrestling diehards about the greatest tag team of all time, it starts and ends with the Road Warriors. There are no other details available on the cause of death.

Laurinaitis forged a famous career alongside his tag team partner Hawk, where the duo dubbed themselves "The Road Warriors". They soon joined manager "Precious" Paul Ellering and made waves on the pro-wrestling circuit for many years before joining the WWE in 1990, where they were known as The Legion of Doom.

Hulk wrote: 'RIP Animal, love you my brother, I know you and Hawk have a lot of unfinished business to take care of!' "God speed and blessings to your handsome family".

Cultaholic extends its condolences to Mr. Laurinaitis' family and friends.

Hawk, whose real name Michael Hegstrand, sadly died at the young age of 46 in 2003 after suffering a heart attack. James Laurinaitis was a star linebacker for Ohio State University before being drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the second round of the 2009 National Football League draft.

With their challenging face paint, attire covered in metal spikes and excellent variety of power relocations, the duo recorded titles and ruined challengers anywhere they strolled. Together, they formed what was arguably the most successful, popular and feared tandem of all time - The Road Warriors.
