RIP Macho Man

The brother of former WWF superstar Macho Man Randy Savage told TMZ that he was killed in a car accident in Tampa.

Lanny Poffo said his brother had a heart attack and lost control of his car.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the 58-year-old Savage's Jeep Wrangler ran across a median and then slammed into a tree.

A Legend of Wrestling.
The flying elbow off the top turnbuckle. Probally the biggest move i acted out when i was a kid.
Jumping off the couch, the lawn, the swings, the back deck. yelling out "MACHO MAN" as my elbow found a home in my brothers stomach.

I only know about him because of SandyRavage. But RIP nonetheless.

Wow.

Sad news.

Also watched this guy throughout my youth.

RIP Macho Man.

Cripes - yet another one. So many wrestlers from that particular era with heart problems no doubt caused in part by drug abuse. Randy, Hennig, Pillman, Rude, Davey, Bossman, Bam Bam, Hawk, Luna Vachon, Sherri Martel, Elizabeth, Eddie...

Aamir 05-20-2011 04:28 PM

Wow, some of the wrestlers I idolized growing up are now gone.

Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, Owen Hart

Hopefully Stone Cold is still alive and well. :sigh:

It's some beast Call of Duty player who records gameplays. He became really really popular a while back

LX 05-20-2011 04:50 PM

This is a sure sign that the world is ending tomorrow. He's been raptured early to help with some of the heavy lifting. Oh yeah!

Claudius 05-20-2011 07:41 PM

LX lol

But yeah, really, really sad news. Him, Flair and Hart were some of my favorites growing up.

Nites 05-20-2011 08:35 PM

Savage was one of the best in ring talents to ever step in the ring.

RaptorsandBuckeye FaN 05-20-2011 08:47 PM

From the great place of Columbus, Ohio! As others liked him growing up. RIP!
