Randal Mario Poffo better known as Macho Man Randy Savage died this morning after suffering a heart attack while driving that caused him to veer off the road into a tree. This was confirmed by his brother Lanny Poffo.
Better known as the The Genius.
As I’ve said before I was never a huge wrestling fan, more of a casual admirer. All major WWF matches and Slams were big topics of discussion in the school yard so I had to at least keep up with current events. I don’t recall how I felt about Macho Man in his hay day. I assume I disliked him as he was often portrayed as the villain. But 25 years later I just can’t get enough of him. Those Slim Jim commercials:
You know kids, it’s just a school play. You don’t have to be in it. And who knew biting into a Slim Jim makes things explode?
Except maybe your heart!
Ouch, too soon Gilbert. His talk show interviews:
And best of all, his pre-match interviews:
I am in love with this clip and I will never get tired of it.
Look Randy. I don’t know if you were crazy, or on drugs or just an amazing actor but one thing you will always be is damn entertaining. You’ll be missed and never forgotten. Ooooooooh Yeeeeeeeah!!!
