George ‘The Animal’ Steele, WWE wrestler and co-star of Tim Burton’s ‘Ed Wood,’ has reportedly passed away at the age of 79. The news was made public by his friend and colleague Hulk Hogan, who called Steele his “brother” on Twitter.
A new report has claimed that the conflict between the musclebound stars is all for show – and all building up to a showdown between the duo at Wrestlemania in 2017. What better time and place for Diesel and Johnson to settle their supposed differences, mano e mano? While he’s largely retired as a wrestler, Johnson has been known to return to the ring as The Rock from time to time – and, as not only the biggest name in wrestling but also one of the biggest movie stars around, his special appearances tend to be at the flagship Wrestlemania event.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is on somewhat of a role with the mega bucks his movies take at the box office, and it seems Disney have caught wind of his man of the moment status by offering him another role. As well as appearing in the upcoming animated musical ‘Moana’, the former WWE wrestler will star in a currently untitled project from Disney that’ll be based on their popular Jungle Cruise ride. This has been a project in the making since 2004, where Tom Hanks and Tim Allen were previously reported to have been in line to star.
