— WWE (@WWE) February 17, 2017
William James Myers, better known to wrestling fans as George ‘The Animal’ Steele, has passed away at the age of 79. Wrestling fans of the 70s and 80s know Steele as a household name, and any younger fans looking to familiarize themselves with Steele have a plethora of work to choose from. Steele performed in the days when wrestlers rarely changed their allegiances, but due to his dedication and unique look, ‘The Animal’ was able to transform from a hated heel to a beloved baby face, even helping Ricky Steamboat defeat Macho Man Randy Savage at WrestleMania 3. Whether you remember him a good or a bad guy, it’s impossible to deny his impact on the sports entertainment industry. RIP to the ‘The Animal’.
