The Score Television Network had a chance to speak to Joe 'Road Warrior Animal' Laurinaitis. Highlights:. On...
Hey Everybody, I was off the computer yesterday and I hope everybody had a pleasant Tuesday. Anyway some tids reprinted from Additional comments by YT. Road Warrior Animal and Andrew Wright's book on the Road Warriors will be released on paperback in April of next year. (Any Road Warrior book is good, but with Mr. Laurinaitis aka Animal, makes it so much more special. A must for anybody who was a fan of the 80's, the ending of the glory days of the Territories, NWA Georgia, AWA, Japan, Paul Ellering, the late great Michael Hegstrand aka Road Warrior Hawk, or a budding historian who wants the facts from the man himself, not from a know it all, and not from wikipedia! Then it should be a treat for all.) Fozzy will play a gig at BB Kings in New York City on Friday. (oh crap it's Jericho's band, no offense to his music fans, but when I see Fozzy, I think first of a stand up comedy act with the Muppets Fozzy Bear- Waka! Waka!) Jerry Lynn is set for a seminar in Brooklyn, New York at the Ludus ...

Might sign Road Warrior Animal and have him get beat up by a different tag team every week. "WHERE IN GOD'S NAME WAS HAWK, BY GOD?"
David Michael Bautista was born on January 18, 1969. He is a former bouncer that met Curt Hennig and Road Warrior Animal in Minneapolis. He went to the WCW Power Plant for a tryout, and in another bad decision, WCW decided that he would never make it as a wrestler. He was trained by Wild Samoan Afa...
WCW, wCw Fall Brawl 1993: War Games took place on September 19, 1993 from the Astro Arena in Houston, Texas. Sting, Davey Boy Smith, Dustin Rhodes and The Shockmaster (with Road Warrior Animal) defeated Sid Vicious, Vader and Harlem Heat (Kole and Kane) (with Harley Race and Col. Robert Parker) in a WarGames match (16:39) Shockmaster forced Kole to submit with a Bear hug. Shockmaster replaced Road Warrior Hawk, who was advertised but was injured.
For those of you watching the Jets game today, notice who is playing linebacker for the St. Louis Rams - James Laurinaitis. He is the son of former pro wrestler Joe Laurinaitis (better known to wrestling fans as Road Warrior Animal). His uncles are John Laurinaitis (who wrestled under the name of Johnny Ace) and Marcus Laurinaitis (The Terminator).
Interesting stat about James Laurinaitis is that he decided not to follow father Road Warrior Animal or uncle John to WWE, but to the NFL.
"John Laurinaitis is the brother of Road Warrior Animal from the Road Warriors/Legion of Doom.
Nine Years Ago today, on November 1, 2003, I took part in my first professional wrestling event, shooting video for Legend's Entertainment's Tribute to Road Warrior Hawk. The Show featured WWE Hall of Famer's Superfly Jimmy Snuka, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Road Warrior Animal, The Mouth of The South Jimmy Hart, & Greg The Hammer Valentine as well as legends like The Brooklyn Brawler, Rock & Roll Express (Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson), Gangrel, Malia Hosaka, Luna Vachon, Balls Mahoney, The Powers of Pain (Warlord & Barbarian), The Honky Tonk Man, and Brutus The Barber Beefcake. Big thanks to Mark Bujan for responding to an e-mail I had sent event promoter Steve Rau, asking if I could videotape the event for my own video collection, for taking a chance on me and letting me videotape the event. He was instrumental in getting my foot in the door and setting me on the path to what's become a tremendous run as a ring announcer. I'm forever grateful.
Interesting! James Laurinaitis of the St. Louis Rams is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Joe Laurinaitis, AKA Road Warrior Animal. He's also the nephew of former Executive Vice-President of Talent Relations for WWE John Laurinaitis. He's also the nephew of Marcus Laurinaitis, AKA The Terminator from the Wrecking Crew tag-team.
oh ok I was about to guess road warrior animal but punk works to!
I think Devon ranks up there with Road Warrior Animal joining Flair's stable in 2001-era WCW. At least in terms of initial impact.
last time i seen UNITY FACEPAINT road warrior animal turned on hendreich (spell check)
I know Road Warrior Animal has a son playing LB for the Rams but I'm down right impressed that at his age, the Hacksaw is playing for Texans.never mind, the commentator said Brooks Reed, not Butch Reed.
What I've learned: British Bill Hader hosts, Isaac=Road Warrior Animal and and I are pulling for
goofiest wrestling attack: Road Warrior Animal sticks spike in Dusty Rhodes eye...uh, wouldnt that put your eye out???
don't get me wrong, i want the Lions to win. but i gotta admit, i am a James Laurinaitis fan. i know, he plays for the Rams, & i know, he went to Ohio State. but the fact that his father is Road Warrior Animal, trumps both of those facts.
1st team in the is Road Warrior Animal, Curt Hennig, & Dusty Rhodes

Smackdown! 07.13.12: QUICK RESULTS - Hunico, Camacho and The Prime Time Players (O'Neil and Young) defeated Epico, Primo, R Truth and Kofi Kingston @ 12:00 via pin [**¾] - Damien Sandow defeated Zack Ryder @ 2:00 via pin [NR] - Kane defeated Daniel Bryan @ 5:00 via DQ [**] - Road Warrior Animal defeated Heath Slater @ 1:00 via pin [NR] - Sheamus and Rey Mysterio defeated Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler @ 13:00 via DQ [***] Reminder: I do not rate matches under three minutes long THE RIGHT: THE OPENING PROMO: As much as I do get sick of the show opening promo, I enjoyed this one because it made sense and it led to something, which is all I really ask. Rey Mysterio kicked off the show, in his hometown and discussed his return. He elaborated on why he came back Monday, and that he wanted revenge on Alberto Del Rio, the man that injured him. That brought out Del Rio, and we had some great continuity, which I always appreciate. They had some back and forth, and as Del Rio proclaimed that he would be the nex ...

Are you a Road Warrior Hawk or Road Warrior Animal kinda guy?
Huge Selection of Jackets at Low Prices
Any wrestling fans out there? Where was Bill Goldberg on Monday night's 1000th episode of RAW. Great seeing in the one time ring appearance of Road Warrior Animal, Doink the Clown, Diamond Dallas Page, Rakeeshi and Sid Vicious.
was awesome but the only problem was that Road Warrior Animal didn't actually wrestle Please fix it.
Road warrior animal was on smackdown.
1000th episode of RAW was awesome!!! Lots of old school wrestlers were on to celebrate...The Rock, Bret the Hitman Hart, Psycho Sid, Vader, Seargant Slaughter, Dude Love, APA (Bradshaw and Simmons), Lita, Doink the Clown, Road Warrior Animal, Rowdy Roddy Piper, all of Degeneration X (TripleH, Shawn Michaels, Billy Gunn, Road-dog, Xpac), especially the reuniting of the Brothers of Destruction (Undertaker and Kane)EPIC
Road warrior animal on smackdown now !!! 😃
Since when did the get replaced by road warrior animal?

road warrior/legion of doom Animal was epic last night
I liked a video Aftermath - Arda Ocal with Road Warrior Animal
Still can't believe i seen APA,Lita,Rikishi, Road Warrior Animal nd the other legends back on RAW.BEST RAW EVER.SO FAR
The legends is in the Buildin doink the clown bam bam Sid rowdy sgt slaughter road warrior animal
Well RAW's 1000th episode was very good. You seen good legends like Trish Stratus, Lita, Psycho Sid, Vader, Road Warrior Animal, The Rock and even Undertaker. But why in the *** was there no Stone Cold Steve Austin *** WWE
Mooney looked great! And Road Warrior Animal was blowing up.
What a kick *** RAW 1000. Until Big Show f***ed up on what would've been a great WWE Championship Match between John Cena & CM Punk. From beginning with the reunion of D-Generation X to special appearances from WWE Legends and Hall Of Famers such as Bret "The Hitman" Hart, *** Foley as Dude Love, Vader, Sycho Sid, the APA, Good Ol' Jim Ross, Road Warrior Animal, Doink the Clown, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Sgt. Slaughter, Bob Backlund, Diamond Dallas Page, and one of my favorite WWE Divas, Lita embarassing Heath Slater to an EPIC in-ring segment featuring The Rock and his quest to another WWE Championship and an EPIC segment featuring Triple H, Paul Heyman, & Stephanie McMahon which led to a brawl between Triple H and Brock Lesnar. And the best part of RAW 1000 (in my opinion), the return of The Undertaker.B.O.N.E. Enterpri$e.
it was pretty sweet, Road Warrior Animal & DDP were there...also much easier to watch when it starts @ 5 not 8
Nice to see Rikishi, Pyshco Sid, A.P.A. Lita, Bob Backlund, DDP, Road Warrior Animal, Vader and the rest on Raw 1000th.
Anyone remember when Road Warrior Animal teamed up with Heidenreich? Better yet when Heidenreich kidnapped Michael Cole?
I'm sorry but no one can out quote the Rock."You look like a lumberjack banged an oompa-loompa" and my personal favorite..."oompa-loompa deedeede, you look look a troll from Lord Of The Rings." Bringing back memories of DX, Brothers Of Destruction, Brock Lesnar, Bret Hart and some of the legends...Psycho Sid, Vader, DDP, Road Warrior Animal, Rikishi, Doink, Dude Love ect. I'm loving it.
Mr. McMahon! Degeneration X! Lita! Stephanie! Road Warrior Animal! AJ in a wedding dress! THE ROCK! And best of all THE BROTHERS OF DESTRUCTION! Ok! I admit it! That 1000th episode of RAW didn't let me down.
I can't tell who rocks a better mohawk...Road warrior animal or The Undertaker??? :-/
Road Warrior Animal gets two segments? Wait, that was Taker with the Animal hairdo.

*** Road Warrior Animal on Raw.used to be my favs
Dont know how many people out there actually still watch wrestling talking about WWE use to be WWF, but for those of you who use to watch it when it was really popular you might want to watch tonights Raw. It starts at 8 eastern time and they are bringing back a lot of the older guys to celebrate the 1,000 episode. Pretty darn good for a fake *** wrestling as people like to call it I would say. So far i know for sure The Rock, Brock Lesnar, Shawn Michaels, Roddy Piper, Road Warrior Animal, and many others are going to be there. Before anyone judges me for watching wrestling and being 28 realize that wrestling is something that I grew up watching and in a way shape of form was like a hobby for me and helped me through some rough areas in my childhood. Kind of like my escape from reality. It is fake I know that but other then most sports on television what isnt. I will say this i am quick to defend the art of pro wrestling because a lot of people say oh its fake well they are right but tell the wr ...

Hall of Fame: Road Warrior Animal & Paul Ellering's induction speech at the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2011 induction ceremony
is a role model, so was Road Warrior Animal in 2001, Shane Douglas his whole life, and Billy Jack Haynes
Finally stepped on a weight scale yesterday. I'm at 248lbs, down from 263lb. I'm thinking 10-15lb and I should be in visible ab territory. Which would make me a beast to have abs at 235lbs. Too bad it's not 1975 and I could buy some Deca, I'd be walking around looking like Road Warrior Animal. With Sebastian looking like Johnny Ace.

I kinda hope Road Warrior Animal and are Johnny Ace's back-up
IDK about y'all, but I think Johnny Ace dreamed he had the career his brother, Road Warrior Animal, had. As I remember, he had better publicity as a member of the Dynamic Dudes. Which n fact, his partner Shane Douglas had a better career than poor Johnny.
