Road Warrior Hawk Dies at 46

Road Warrior Hawk dies at age 46 at home in his sleep:

To me, the Road Warriors were the greatest wrestling tag team of all times. They were the only tag team to hold the AWA, NWA, and WWF tag titles. Some of you may also know them as L.O.D. When I saw them on TV as a kid they were the coolest. They came down to the ring with their faces painted, with shoulder pads that had spikes all over them, and their entrance music was Black Sabbath’s, Iron Man. Back then it didn’t get much cooler than that. The cause of death has not been determined at this time. I seriously hope it wasn’t anything related to drugs. You hate to see your heroes end up that way. First Stu Hart and now Hawk. I hope wrestling isn’t like Hollywood and we get a 3rd. Hawk’s real name was Mike Hegstrand. My prayers and condolences go out to the Hegstrand family and friends.
