Jim Myers (aka George “The Animal” Steele) lived a double life. By day he was a respected high school teacher and coach with a master’s degree. By night, he was the hairy, green-tongued monster who spoke only in grunts and bit, arm-locked and power slammed his opponents in the ring.

*Animal* chronicles Myers’ life and career during wrestling’s golden era in the 1970s and 80’s and melds the seemingly incompatible career paths he followed. Myers joined the WWF in the late 1960s to supplement his meager teacher’s salary. In the ring, he was wild, often using foreign objects as weapons and getting kicked out of matches for illegal behavior. But the life of Animal outside the ring wasn’t typical for a famous wrestler. In his own words, Myers explains that despite battling dyslexia, he graduated from Michigan State. He also married young, had a family and became a teacher and a coach at the high school he once despised.

*Animal* includes humorous anecdotes from professional wrestling history, when he rubbed elbows with other greats including Hulk Hogan, Junkyard Dog and Randy “Macho Man” Savage. Later, Myers fought and beat Crohn’s disease and is in remission today. Myers was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 1995.
