The man who had one of the most unusual gimmicks in the history of pro wrestling has died at the age of 79.
I grew up watching George eat turnbuckles and flail around in a most bizarre manner. It is easily something I will never forget. He passed away from kidney failure and has been in hospice care for almost a year.
Steel has a very long career in the WWF and other promotions around the world, but everyone will always remember him from WWF. george was also and author and an actor in a few movies as well. Yep, another chunk of childhood gone.
