R.I.P. "Macho Man" Randy Savage

one of my all-time favorite pro wrestlers died on friday after a car accident that resulted from what's believed to be a heart attack.

growing up as a wrestling fan in the 80s, most kids were "hulkamaniacs". i always loved the "macho man". maybe it is because i knew that he was born and raised in my hometown of columbus, oh. maybe it was because he had the foxy miss elizabeth as his valet. i even entered a contest through pizza hut to try and win a trip to wrestlemania v so i could see him beat up his ex-friend hulk hogan, live and in person. i didn't win the trip but i did win a wrestlemania v t-shirt and wore it with pride even though he didn't beat the huckster hulkster.

so long, "macho man". you were one of a kind.
