They snacked on danger, dined on death, and lived life on the edge.

The Road Warriors: Danger, Death, and the Rush of Wrestling is the captivating true story of The Legion of Doom: The Road Warriors, presented by Joe “Animal” Laurinaitis. Alongside Mike “Hawk” Hegstrand, Laurinaitis stormed onto the wrestling scene. With a monstrous style and image like no other, the Road Warriors went on to become two of the most influential and celebrated wrestlers the world has ever known.

In his first book ever, Laurinaitis shares his perspective of the dangers of being in the ring, the death of his lifelong friend and tag team partner “Hawk,” and the rush of leaving a legacy in tag team wrestling that is unmatched to this day.

Joe takes readers behind the scenes of their most famous matches, including what it was like . . .

to be twenty feet in the air on the scaffold at Starrcade ’86 as it nearly fell apart underneath,
to legitimately injure J.J. Dillon during the first War Games at The Great American Bash in 1987,
and to witness Hawk so inebriated while fighting in SummerSlam ’92, it was miraculous he could even walk.
