Road Warrior Animal has died at the age of 60 according to latest reports by the WWE which announced the sudden passage of the superstar.
Joe Laurinaitis popularly known as Road Warrior Animal gave wrestling fans true entertainment from the rings since he first made appearance in the sport.
It was gathered that the 6-foot-2, 300-pound Animal was, until his death, a member of the tag team Hawk where the group members formed what many describe as the most successful, popular and feared tandem of all time - The Road Warriors.
The pair intimidated opponents with their face paints as well as their metal spikes outfits and impressive array of power moves, the duo captured titles and destroyed opponents wherever they roamed.
The Road Warriors thrived in multiple stints with WWE, where they were known as The Legion of Doom.
The team won the World Tag Team Titles on two occasions and were eventually enshrined in the WWE Hall of Fame.
And this is coming barely a month that curtains fell on former WWE star James Kamala Harris.
The American pro wrestler passed away aged 70, with his death being announced on Monday, August 10, by WWE.
Born in Mississippi, Harris initially worked picking cotton and driving trucks before he decided to try his hand in wrestling when he moved to Michigan.
He went on to make a name for himself after he joined WWF, now WWE, in the 80s starring in matches against other WWE legends including Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant. Better known by his ring name, Kamala, Harris bowed out of wrestling in 2006.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that WWE legend Matt Hardy was on Saturday night, September 5, left hospitalised after he smashed his head on a concrete in a stunt that went wrong.
Hardy was up against Sammy Guevara during the AEW All Out bout during the incident.
SunSport reports the two wrestlers were grappling above the floor on a scissor lift when Guevara speared Harry off the top.
But the duo overshot the table below them, with Hardy falling directly on the concrete as his opponent took a relatively softer blow.
