That sucks.   I wonder what happened.  Was he sick or just a massive heart attack or something?

I grew up with the Road Warriors - always was a fan. My Dad worked with Hawks brother and I got to go back stage several times when they were in for house shows in Minneapolis. 


He and Hawk, couldn't have been nicer to me. Ultimate Warrior did a six man tag with them one night and I got to meet him too.  Great memories. 

No question Hawk and Animal are back together today. "What A Rush"....thanks for everything fellas in my book an all time great tag team. 

RIP Joe - my condolences to the Laurinaitis family and all LOD/Road Warrior fans.

My favorites as a kid. You can talk all you want about work rate or whatever. Any kid from that era knows why it was called a Road Warrior pop

A bit surprised because it always seemed like he was in good health.

RIP. Can't have a conversation about tag teams and not mention the road warriors.

Sad.  Those two embodied my definition of what wrestlers should be - big, bad, dominant ass kickers.

I miss the days when wrestling had a defined tag team division. The Road Warriors were always my favorite. Their resume of accomplishments will never be matched. This one hits hard. RIP big man.

These guys. Didn't know if I was more awestruck or scared shitless of them as a kid.

Still no news on cause of death?  Assuming heart attack but just curious.
