Take a look at his post below,

RIP brother.
Really saddened to wake up to this news today — the passing of my friend, Joe Laurinaitis (on the left) aka ROAD WARRIOR ANIMAL.
Joe & Mike aka HAWK & ANIMAL, THE ROAD WARRIORS were the most intense, legit tough bad asses tag team in the history of the wild world of pro wrestling.
When I was making my bones, still learning the business in the WWE as a very young “The Rock” – I wrestled these guys so many times on the road and they always took good care of me and made sure I learned.
Tough as nails.
Good men.
Greatest tag team of all time.
And apple fritters (our inside joke).
Much love and I’ll always be grateful to you both.
RIP.

It’s always tough to see our heroes pass and people we grew up watching. It will never get any easier. Though what Laurinaitis left was a legacy, both with his incredible wrestling tape and his son, James Laurinaitis.

We send our condolences to his family and may he rest in peace. Thank you for making our childhood’s amazing.
