  1. Remembering Randy Savage


    TMZ reports:

    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.

    I grew up watching “Macho Man” Randy Savage on television each and every week.  I started to become a fan during Savage’s initial WWE Championship run, culminating with his match at WrestleMania V with Hulk Hogan.  When I woke up this afternoon and saw that TMZ was reporting Savage passed, I refused to believe it, but the news is spreading like wildfire and I can’t pretend forever.

    Randy Savage, for me, was the premiere architect of what a professional wrestler should be.  Detail oriented in the ring, and entertaining as hell outside of it.  When “Pomp & Circumstance” came through the PA at a wrestling event, you knew you were in for something special.

    I’m at a complete loss for words, so I’ll leave you with one of my favorite Macho Man quotes.

    “The camera is that way, yeah. Sense of direction I’ve always had, but a little help along the way, just like a good quick shove, is somethin’ nice to have, yeah!”

    Please feel free to leave your Macho Man memories in the comments below!

    RIP Randy “Macho Man” Savage


    May you two be reunited...
