Following the unfortunate passing of legendary singer Meat Loaf at the age of 74 on Thursday night, WWE have released a statement on the news.
Paying tribute to the singer, WWE’s statement reads as follows:
“Meat Loaf passes away
We are saddened to learn that Michael Lee Aday, better known as Meat Loaf and beloved by fans all over the world, passed away at the age of 74. Our sincerest thoughts are with his family, friends and those affected by his passing.
The WWE Universe fondly remembers Meat Loaf’s appearance as a Raw guest host on May 10, 2010. The chart-topping musician pitched Randy Orton one of his songs for his new entrance music that led to a memorable exchange with The Viper.
WWE extends its condolences to Aday’s family, friends and fans.”
RIP Meat Loaf
In 2010, he tried to persuade @RandyOrton that he had a song on his new album that should be his new entrance music.
