The war between cars and wrestlers has claimed another victim. Randall “Randy Savage” Poffo, who thrilled the wrestling world with his hysterical rumblings and grumblings as Macho Man, died in a car crash this morning at age 58. He reportedly suffered a heart attack while behind the wheel, and veered across traffic into a tree. His wife of one year was also in the vehicle but was not seriously injured.
Macho Man’s romance with the late Miss Elizabeth is one of the most legendary wrestling storylines of all time, and Savage one of its greatest performers. In recent years, Savage has served as a spokesman for Slim JIm meat snacks, so let’s all raise one in his memory today.
