It's been a while but I'm trying something ambitious for October. Quick, daily blogs counting down the 31 scariest wrestlers of all-time. These are in no particular order.
First up is the Road Warriors. When I first started watching wrestling, Hawk and Animal were the AWA tag team champions. The makeup, spikes, and crazy haircuts made them two of the most intimidating guys to step through the ropes. Throw in Black Sabbath's Iron Man and you couldn't find a tougher twosome.
Even after bouncing around from company to company and changing their look from time to time, Hawk and Animal remained intimidating forces in the ring. They snacked on danger and dined on death and became the only tag team in history to win the championships in AWA, NWA, and WWF. Their influence is still felt today.
So today, I salute the Road Warriors and honor their legacy. Oh, what a rush.
