Read his autobiography, last year. I don't recommend it, because he was trying to hard to be "funny" and it was all over the place. Had a sensible head on his shoulders, though. Really loved coaching high school football and trying to help kids.

One of my dad's favorite wrestlers and we used his promos to help with my speech impediment, as a kid. Part of the reason I usually give him a free pass on his sub-par in-ring work (especially in the 80's). Definitely one of the more memorable characters.

Always sad to hear of a passing, especially considering his health issues dating back to the late 80's. I was never really a fan of Steele since his only exposure to me were renting old WrestleMania's (or specifically Mania 2 and 4), and as an adult, his work didn't do much for me. His program with Savage over his infatuation with Elizabeth is memorable and a storyline that has never been replicated, at least not to the same level of success. Seriously, they somehow got super-heel Steele over as a sympathetic babyface. He played the gimmick well, even if the matches were crud. He'd pop up throughout the 90's as a special surprise, like working a tag match with TAKA against Lawler and Son, and his short-lived association with the Oddities.

RIP animal


He was certainly different than everyone else when I started watching in '83

Much better as a heel, but he was able to get sympathy in his one sided feud with Savage as Scrooge mentioned

I forgot the oddities stuff

I don't remember the teaming with Taka

He did have a match in WCw's dying days against Jeff Jarrett

It was jarret vs Santana, then against Steele, then against Snuka. One after another
