Gearoge "the animal" Steele April 16 1937- February 16th 2017

Last night the wrestling world lost WWE  Hall of famer George "the animal" steele.  he was 79.

from what i have been reading, he has been in and out of hospice care since april 2016.   his death is being attributed to kidney failure.

George "the Animal" Steele was a wild unpredictable and seemingly not too bright-- yet had a child like innocence to his character. he spoke but a few words of English, had a green tongue and a hairy back and love to shew on turnbuckles and throw the stuffing everywhere.

But in reality, William myers the man behind "the animal"  was very well educated and graduated from the university of Michigan. he also taught high school and coached football.

he was inducted into the wwe hall of fame in 1995.

he is survived by his wife of 50 years and 3 children.
