Today is a sad day for the world of entertainment. “Macho Man” Randy Savage, a former professional wrestler and occasional movie actor, died in a car accident at the age of 58. “Mach” was a major part of my childhood, and I am very saddened to hear of his passing. I grew up watching pro wrestling, mainly on weekends with my father, and Savage was always one of my favorite wrestlers. He was incredibly charismatic and could have a good match with anyone, plus he had one hell of a gorgeous manager (his real life wife at the time, Miss Elizabeth, who passed away in 2003).
Movie fans will remember Savage for his role as Bonesaw in the 2002 film, Spider-Man:
Who could forget Macho Man’s awesome Slim Jim commercials back in the day? “Art thou bored???”
The man could give some insane promos, too. Here a couple of classics:
R.I.P. Macho Man, you will be missed.
