RIP George the Animal Steele

Just passed away at the age of 79. 1980's legend RIP

Ugh, but 79 is 100 in wrestler years.

RIP.

Pretty sure he was in the first wrestling match ever I saw. Him vs. Dangerous Danny Davis.

If I recall correctly, he was a full time school teacher in addition to being The Animal

Yes he was a high school gym teacher in Michigan. Funny thing was he only wrestled in the summer time. But because everything was on tape delay they would record his matches and play them throughout the winter.

damn, I grew up watching him
