Update on a Former WWE Tag Team Champion

– The New York Daily News has an article on Joe Laurinaitis, better known as Road Warrior Animal from last week. He says he’d like to return to either WWE or TNA in the role of a road agent to help the younger wrestlers. “I’d love to work for the WWE or TNA behind-the-scenes,” Laurinaitis said, “not only to train the young talent but how to relate to the fans, which is so important.”

In the early 1980s, Laurinaitis was faced with his career path: pro football with the defunct USFL, or professional. Laurinaitis needed money at the time, so he chose pro wrestling and formed the Legion of Doom faction with Mike Hegstrand (a.k.a. Hawk) “Ole Anderson saw me with my friend Mike Hegstrand and said since we looked like twins so why not team up,” Laurinaitis said. “Ole named (the team) but we named ourselves, me the bigger guy became Animal, and Mike, who liked to fly around the ring, became Hawk.”
