The Macho Man Passes Away At The Age of 58
Sad news to report today as one of my all-time favourites Randy "Macho Man" Savage died after suffering a heart attack while driving. Savage was only 58 years old and had recently got re-married. I will always remember the Macho Man for his trademark promo's and catch phrases as well as his classic match with Ricky Steamboat at Wrestlemania 3 and his feuds with "Nature Boy" Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan when "The Mega Powers Exploded". He was also managed by Miss Elizabeth, who was his real life wife at the time. The two divorced a while back and sadly Elizabeth passed away at the young age of 43 a few years back.
The "Macho Man" had a long career with both the WWE and WCW, and was also had a few funny guest spots on the Regis and Kelly Show.
The Macho Man, sadly, had yet to be enshrined in the WWE Hall of Fame as he had a falling out with the company until recently. My guess is that he will be induced post-humously next year.
