George 'The Animal' Steele, a WWE legend and Hall of Famer, dies at 79: From Madison Heights, Michigan, to Madison Square Garden, "The Animal" excited wrestling fans all over

Quote:
Hall of Fame wrestler George “The Animal” Steele has died, according WWE.

Steele, real name Jim Myers, had been battling health problems for years, including kidney failure. He had been moved into hospice care shortly before his death.

Portraying a green-tongued, bald-headed wildman, Steele was known for “eating” turnbuckles -- ripping them open with his teeth and throwing the shredded padding at opponents. He enjoyed his greatest fame near the end of his three-decade career as part of the 1980s WWE (then WWF) roster that included stars like Andre the Giant, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Hulk Hogan and “Macho Man” Randy Savage.

'Russian Bear' Ivan Koloff dies (famous professional wrestler)

Quote:
The date January 18, 1971 and Ivan Koloff will forever be connected. That was the day that "The Russian Bear" did the unthinkable, defeating Bruno Sammartino for the WWWF World title. Sure, he only held the belt for another three weeks before dropping it to Pedro Morales, but it made Koloff, who died today at age 74, into a big name star...

What a strange world this is. Koloff's victory over Sammartino in the middle of the ring in Madison Square Garden, scoring the greatest wrestling upset of the era and ending Sammartino's nearly eight-year reign as WWWF world champion was game-changing. "Dead silence came down," said manager Captain Lou Albano, who was in Koloff's corner that night. "They couldn't believe it." ...

Richard Schickel, Influential Time Magazine Film Critic, Dies at 84

Quote:
Richard Schickel, the longtime film critic for Time magazine who also wrote 37 books, mostly on film, and directed a number of documentaries on film subjects, died on Saturday in Los Angeles of complications from a series of strokes, his family told the Los Angeles Times. He was 84.

“He was one of the fathers of American film criticism,” his daughter, writer Erika Schickel, told the Times. “He had a singular voice. When he wrote or spoke, he had an old-fashioned way of turning a phrase. He was blunt and succinct both on the page and in life.”

He wrote and/or directed more than 30 documentaries, mostly for television.

'He fought with courage, strength and grace': Fox News commentator Alan Colmes dies aged 66 after a short illness

Quote:
Popular Fox News contributor Alan Colmes passed away at the age of 66 on Thursday.

The news of Colmes' death was reported by Sean Hannity, who called the popular broadcaster 'one of the nicest, kindest, and most generous people' in a pre-taped breaking news segment that aired on Fox News.

Colmes and Hannity worked together for over 20 years, with both men joining Fox News back in 1996 when they launched their show Hannity & Colmes, which ran for 13 years on the network.

That program focused on conservative Hannity and liberal Colmes giving their takes on the news of the day.

Colmes is survived by his wife of 13 years Dr. Jocelyn Elise Crowley, who released a statement on Thursday asking for privacy during this time and revealing that her husband died after a brief illness.
