WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long and the legendary Bill Apter discussed their friendship with Road Warriors Hawk and Animal in the latest Sportskeeda WrestleBinge.

Bill Apter on Road Warrior Animal:

“On Animal’s final birthday, his wife had asked a whole bunch of wrestling people to cut like a comedy thing. I sent him one, and the next day, I asked, ‘How did he like the video?’ and she said, ‘He died laughing’, and two days later, he died.”

Teddy Long on Road Warrior Hawk:

“Well, I loved Hawk and I wanted to be with Hawk because I loved the drugs. Okay. I know when I was with Hawk, we were going to have drugs and have a great time. Me and him was really tight though, man. I remember one time we were in Charlotte and stopped at a gas station to get some gas. I think I went in first to do something and then I got into it with some mark that was in the gas station. I don’t know. But anyway, it turned into a little bit of an argument and the next thing I know, Hawk came in and Hawk so me and this mark was arguing, and the next thing I know, Hawk just decked him and we just walked on out the gas station.”

Apter on Road Warrior Hawk:

“I rode with him one time and he was having some stomach issues. I said, ‘What did you have for dinner?’ He said, ‘Are you shooting pictures around the ring tonight? I said, ‘Yeah.’ He said, ‘I don’t want to talk about dinner.’ We get to the third or fourth match. They come on. Hawk’s in front of the rope and he says, ‘You want to know what I had for dinner’, and he throws up.”
