“I’ll win if I have to eat his forehead off” was George “The Animal” Steele’s comment about his match against World Wide Wrestling Federation heavyweight champion Pedro Morales at the Scranton Catholic Youth Center on August 1, 1972. Steele died on February 17, 2017 at the age of 79.
Also wrestling that evening, was a tag team match between Toru Tanaka and Mr. Fugi versus El Olympico and Indian Jay Strongbow. In single matches were Joe Turco, Joe Nova, Black Demon and Arnold Skoland.
During his professional wrestling years, Steele played the villain but outside the ring he was William James Myers who was teacher and coach at Madison High School in Madison Heights, Michigan.
