“Macho Man” Randy Savage Dies
Growing up in the 1980’s, “Macho Man” Randy Savage was one of my idols. I loved waking up on Saturday mornings and staying up late on Monday nights to catch WWF (now WWE) on TV and see his feuds with Hulk Hogan, Jake “The Snake” Roberts and “Ravishing” Rick Rude.
His match against Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat may be the greatest match of all time!
RIP Macho Man!
Florida Highway Patrol tells TMZ … Savage was driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler when he veered across a concrete median … through oncoming traffic … and “collided head-on with a tree.”
Savage was transported to Largo Medical center, where he died from his injuries.
Savage’s wife was a passenger in the vehicle during the collision — but survived with “minor injuries.” She was transported to a different local hospital where she was treated.
