Wrestling: The Road Warriors
"UHHHHHH. WHAT A RUSHHHHHHH!"

The Road Warriors (also known as The Legion of Doom or L.O.D.) were a Professional Wrestling Tag Team who competed in essentially every major promotion in the world (WWE, THE NWA, WCW, AJPW, NJPW, TNA, and the AWA). The team consisted of wrestlers Michael "Hawk" Hegstrand (September 12, 1957 October 19, 2003) and Joseph "Animal" Laurinaitis (born on January 26, 1960) with manager "Precious" Paul Ellering (born on August 22, 1953).

The Road Warriors were one of the biggest acts of The Eighties and The Nineties, comparable to Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. They introduced several things into wrestling still seen today, such as their tag team finisher, the Doomsday Device, and face paint, still used today by wrestlers such as Jeff Hardy. They also popularized the Zubaz workout pants within the industry, which they helped develop with bodybuilders Bob Truax and Dan Stock.

They are the only team to have ever held the AWA World Tag Team Titles, the NWA World Tag Team Titles and the WWE World Tag Team Titles.

They attempted a comeback in mid-to-late 2003 but nothing came of it. Sadly, Road Warrior Hawk (the guy sticking his tongue out) died of a heart attack on October 19, 2003. Road Warrior Animal returned to WWE in 2005, teaming up with Heidenreich, but unfortunately, the new combination didn't take off, even with Christy Hemme as their valet.
