He was driving his car and had a heart-attack at the wheel and hit a tree.

He was rushed to the hospital but died of his injuries.

He had barely celebrated his 1st. anniversary with his new wife! :(

He was only 58.

I'm particularly saddened by this as Ihad patterned my first villain after him in my comic here on DD
'The Dragon Fists of Smorty Smythe.'

check him out here.

I even jokingly said once that if in the unlikely event they were to do a live-action movie of Smorty Smythe I would endorse Randy Savage to play the character.

RIP Randy…you were among the best!

Not bad.

Ya, he was a larger than life character for a while there. Pretty awesome guy back in the 80s :)

Side effect of steroids use is that you can die (relatively) young.

My apologies if he never used anabolic steroids. I'm working from memory that he admitted to using steroids at one time in past, like many professional wrestlers of those days.

I still remember his scripted rivalry with Hulk Hogan. Ah, that was good.

The last promo done by the Macho Man in the WWE:

He still had it and was just getting back on good terms with the WWE. It's a shame he couldn't be inducted into the Hall of Fame while he was still alive, he was truly one of the wrestling greats.

I will always remember him best as Bonesaw, who as we all know, was prepared.

I grew up watching Macho Man and the rest of the then WWE cast. I don't think he was an exceptional wrestler or anything, but he was always entertaining.

 
 
“You tell yourself to just
enjoy the process,” he added. “That whether you succeed or fail, win or
lose, it will be fine. You pretend to be Zen. You adopt detachment, and
ironic humor, while secretly praying for a miracle.”

He will be missed. I remember him mostly for his SlimJim ads, for I never had seen his stuff in WCW until much, much later. It was hard not to say the line once I found out the news. :/ I feel bad, and I'm sorry.

It would've been good to see him in the WWE again. Bret Hart being there again made me smile, regardless of the plotline behind it.

Oh yehhhhhhhhhhh!

Oh wait, I mean, “oh nooooooooooo!”

(too soon?)

Uh, yeah, that blows. I remember when me and my bros used to play WWF in the backyard, I'd always be Macho. He was the coolest.
