• The Rock Reacts To Road Warrior Animal’s Death

Old School WWF Legend The Rock recently made a post on Instagram after the death of Road Warrior Animal.

You can read it below:

“RIP brother.

Really saddened to wake up to this news today — the passing of my friend, Joe Laurinaitis (on the left) aka ROAD WARRIOR ANIMAL.

Joe & Mike aka HAWK & ANIMAL, THE ROAD WARRIORS were the most intense, legit tough badasses tag team in the history of the wild world of pro wrestling.

When I was making my bones, still learning the business in the WWE as a very young “The Rock” – I wrestled these guys so many times on the road and they always took good care of me and made sure I learned.

Tough as nails.

Good men.

Greatest tag team of all time.

And apple fritters (our inside joke).

Much love and I’ll always be grateful to you both.
