• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 83rd birthday of Old School WWF Legend George “The Animal” Steele (Real name: William Myers).

George Steele wrestled from 1967 until he retired in 1988, but still came out of retirement a couple of times in 1997 & 1998 (WWF), as well as in early 2000 when he wrestled Jeff Jarrett on an episode of WCW Monday NITRO.

Steele won the Slammy Award for “Best Performance by an Animal” in 1987.

In 1995, he was inducted into the World Wrestling Federation Hall of Fame (now WWE Hall of Fame) by Doink The Clown.
