WWE Issues Statement On The Passing Of Meat Loaf

Musical icon Meat Loaf (real name Michael Lee Aday) sadly passed away today (January 21), reportedly due to complications involving COVID-19.

Meat Loaf made an appearance on WWE television back on May 10, 2010, where he appeared as one of the celebrity guest hosts. Meat Loaf would end up on the receiving end of a Randy Orton RKO.

WWE posted a statement on their website regarding Meat Loaf’s passing. They said:

We are saddened to learn that Michael Lee Aday, better known as Meat Loaf and beloved by fans all over the world, passed away at the age of 74. Our sincerest thoughts are with his family, friends and those affected by his passing.

Meat Loaf’s larger-than-life personality and distinctive musical style paved the way for an iconic entertainment career. The Dallas, Texas, native authored one of the best-selling albums of all-time with the release of “Bat Out of Hell” and won a GRAMMY Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo, for “I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)” in 1994. Meat Loaf also enjoyed a successful acting career and delivered indelible performances in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “Fight Club” and many others.

The WWE Universe fondly remembers Meat Loaf’s appearance as a Raw guest host on May 10, 2010. The chart-topping musician pitched Randy Orton one of his songs for his new entrance music that led to a memorable exchange with The Viper.

WWE extends its condolences to Aday’s family, friends and fans.
