WWE Hall of Famer George “The Animal” Steele (Jim Myers) is battling “serious health issues” at the age of 79.
“Just to let everyone know that I’m dealing with some serious health challenges right now,” Steele announced Sunday night. “I’m at peace with whatever God’s plan is for me knowing that God is always in control. Prayers continue to be appreciated. Thank you and God Bless.”
Steele noted on April 29 that he had five weeks of rehab for an unspecified health issue. About a month later on Sunday (May 22), Steele conveyed a sense of urgency about his situation.
