WWE Hall Of Famer Road Warrior Animal recently spoke to Hannibal TV to speak about his former tab group partner Hawk’s death, their friendship, and most more. You can review a highlights below:
How he found out about Hawk’s death:
“Well, we was indeed vacuuming my pool and a phone rang. we suspicion Hawk was doing unequivocally good, and it’s my crony Bob on a phone. ‘I pronounced hey Bobby how we dong?’ He pronounced ‘Hey we speak to Mike today? Hawk?’ we pronounced ‘No, why?’ He pronounced ‘Has anybody called we today?’ we pronounced ‘No why? It’s Saturday, it’s a day off, because would anybody call me?’ He pronounced ‘Joe, Mike died final night.’ we pronounced ‘What?’ ‘Yeah he died,’ he said. we sat down on a stairs of my deck, man, and we cried like a baby. we pronounced male not usually did we remove my partner in wrestling, we mislaid a hermit and we mislaid a friend. As messed adult as he was, we desired a guy. we was a unapproachable male to contend that. Hawk and we were like glue stranded to any other, done a lot of income together, to this day we’re still touted as a series one tab group ever in wrestling. Even with a new guys. And that pronounced something for what we did. He died and it was like someone took a interest and gathering it by my heart. It was bad man, it was a bad time. we listened that there was some kind of medicine on a table, we don’t know what it was. we know he was relocating his wife, they had a condo on a beach and they kept removing pelted by silt or a storm, so he wanted to pierce into a house. He changed and he wanted to pierce all a complicated things so his mother wouldn’t have to lift it. He goes ‘Honey I’m going to go and lay down for a small bit. My behind is sore, let me rest for 3 hours afterwards get me adult so we can finish.’ She was there to arise him adult during 3 o’clock though Hawk was gone. That was it.”
The means of death:
“They pronounced heart failure, yeah. we consider his heart was worse than he was revelation me and it was usually a matter of time when he got diagnosed. In Australia, when he had his heart problem, we suspicion it was a matter of time. Once he got a immature light and they told him he was healthy he went right back. You can’t do that, not with a bad heart.”
His best memory of Hawk:
“Man a biggest memory of Hawk, that’s a tough one. we got a lot of humorous ones, we got a lot of good critical ones. we remember Hawk doing a fight games, being a final male in and literally knocking out Arn Anderson, Tony Blanchard and Lex Lugar with 3 clotheslines. Bam, bam, bam and all 3 are laid out. Cause Hawk was waiting, 5 guys go in during dual mins during a time, and Hawk was a final male who had to wait literally 30 mins to get into a ring. It was like a ticking time bomb. That was a flattering good one. Another one man, biggest moments of all, only a approach he never had any kids of his possess though he was good with my kids. He always suspicion of my kids as his kids. My son James was in high propagandize and was apropos a timber football – Hawk was as unapproachable as we was. My son Joe, personification hockey and my daughter Jessica, he was unapproachable of all my kids man.”
