WWE Hall Of Famer In Critical Condition; Chance Of Recovery "Not Looking Good"

It has been a rough week for former WWE legends and Hall of Famers. From Vader's worsening condition to the death of WWE/ECW star Nicole Bass and now the attention shifts over to WWE Hall of Famer George "The Animal" Steele. The news was originally reported by wrestling agent Eric Simms on his Facebook account - George is currently in hospice care and a recovery is not looking like a strong possibility at the moment. Simms even noted that he's glad that he got to talk to him at least one more time about their work together.

Bob Backlund also chimed in that he called George's wife and she told him that he may not come home this time.

We send our well wishes out and hope for a recovery for George at this time.

  • He has passed away according to both Jim Ross and Cody Rhodes. Might want to update this story.

  • Doug

    Rest in peace, Mr. Steele. I had the pleasure meeting him at an autograph session in Des Moines several years ago. He could not have been nicer.
