WWE's George 'The Animal' Steele dies at 79

quote [ George "The Animal" Steele, a pro wrestling icon and WWE Hall of Famer, has died at 79. WWE confirmed the news Friday.

Steele turned pro in 1967 and was best known for his run as a comical babyface attraction in the final years before his 1988 retirement. With his hairy upper body, bald head and green tongue, Steele became one of the most recognizable characters for the WWE -- then known as WWF -- during its national expansion in the mid-1980s, thanks to his penchant for biting open and chewing on the turnbuckle pads. ]

I met him a few years ago. very nice man. rip

Our steele is immortal. When his flesh ultimately fails, he will simply shift consciousness to the grid.
