 Lotsa great wrestling entertainment.  One of the true superstars that I enjoyed in the wrestling ring, along with Big John Stud, Rowdy Roddy Piper, and Jimmy Super Fly Snuka.  Great appearance in the first Spider-Man movie.  Rest In Peace Randy Savage.

Where is Michael J. Mooney? This is normally his kind of beat isn't it? What's happening to New Times?

I'm waiting until Brandon K Thorpe discloses what is in Randy's kids facebooks before I jump to any conclusions. Will be betting on Mucho Macho Man in the Preakness as a tribute to Randy. R.I.P.

From what I have read, he had a heart attack this morning and lost control of his jeep.  Veered into oncoming traffic where there was a head on collision.  His wife suffered minor injuries.So far alcohol was ruled out as a cause.Very sad.Wonder if the WWE will say anything about it tonight.  Randy DID kind of help build them into what they are now.

 I remember him well.  He had a ring sidekick named Miss Elizabeth who also faced an untimely death.  Given the drug related history of so many wrestlers' deaths, you have to wonder about what caused his heart attack. Savage was one of about ten wrestlers who bridged the gap between the Bruno Sammartino era of Saturday morning TV and the modern era of cable wrestling.  May he rest in peace.

 I have been a wrestling mark since Hogan's cross was ripped off by Andre. I take serious offense to your dumb ass comments. I'm 28 and an avid weight lifter and former wrestler. Wish  you were close to Eugene Oregon so I could hear you talk shit in person. :)

I'm a professional wrestler and former strong man champion and I've never taken roids. Some of us work really hard and sacrifice. So if you don't stop dissing my craft i'm gonna find you and piss on you.
