I hope some of you will go to youtube and listen to some of his after wrestling interview. Very intelligent man and a heck of a performer.  His time with the Elizabeth angle is among the best I have seen.

At least we aren't talking about losing another one too early, as he was nearing 80. RIP Mr.Steele, you're one of the unforgetables

Quote
Mr. Steele, who had dyslexia, earned a master’s degree from Central Michigan University and went on to teach high school in the Detroit area, where he moonlighted in sports-entertainment promotions...

Throughout much of his career, he continued to teach high school and coach football in Madison Heights, where he would return for Monday practices after weekend wrestling appearances at Madison Square Garden.

He retired from wrestling in the late 1980s after learning that he had Crohn’s disease. He devoted much of his time after that to motivational speaking, spiritual testimony and promoting awareness of the disease. He later moved to Cocoa Beach...
