The Rock Pays Tribute To The Road Warriors


The Rock took to his Instagram account to pay tribute to The Road Warriors after Animal passed away on Wednesday. 

He wrote the following in the caption of his post: 

“RIP brother.  Really saddened to wake up to this news yesterday— 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 bad asses 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.  RIP. #anima l#hawk #lod #whatarush
