Like so many other people I was saddened to hear about the passing of Macho Man Randy Savage. According to TMZ it sounds like the former WWE champion had a heart attack while driving and got into an automobile accident.
I grew up and still to a certain extent am a pretty big wrestling fan. I don’t watch WWE every week anymore but when I was a kid I never missed a single episode of Superstars, Saturday Night’s Main Event, or Wrestlemania.
I remember my dad rented this for me to watch with my friends during my 9th birthday party. My friends and I knew who won the belt but we still loved all four hours of the event.
A lot of people like to make fun of wrestling but for me these guys were superhero’s. As a scrawny & short kid who wasn’t that good at sports these guys could do things that I only dreamed of being able to do one day.
Rest in peace Macho Man. I know you’re walking down that aisle in heaven with Miss Elizabeth.
