Ex-pro wrestler Randy Savage aka Macho Man has died following a car crash yesterday in Florida.
The 58 year-old who was travelling in his Wrangler Jeep with his wife Barbara apparently lost control of his vehicle, crossed a motorway reservation into oncoming traffic before crashing into a tree. It’s thought Savage may have suffered a heart-attack while at the wheel, his wife survived the crash with minor injuries.
So there you go, the passing, for us at least, of a legend. We can recall watching this mad man in action, (with the likes of Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Ric Flair and Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts), bringing us entertainment every weekend and introducing the world to the underrated stylings of the hat/beard/sunglasses combo.
Rest in peace you gruff maniac.
