Randy "Macho Man" Savage

Savage a wrestling legend in ring and out

Randy “Macho Man” Savage, a pro wrestling icon whose fame reached far past the wrestling ring as a television pitchman with the phrase, “Snap into a Slim Jim, oooh yeah,” died on Friday morning in Pinellas County, Fla., after reportedly suffering a heart attack while driving, leading to an auto accident.

Savage, born Randall Mario Poffo, was 58. While perhaps best known for his pro wrestling battles as Hulk Hogan’s major storyline rival in the late 1980s, Savage was also an actor and a one-time major league baseball prospect.....

"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

One of the great ones.  And one of the few it seems, that wasn't a total moron, blowing all the money on drugs and lifestyle.

RIP

And...

He can string one complete sentence together after another without stammering or throwing out lots of pauses, umm's, ahh's or ohh's!

Unlike another former wrestler who once governed  ::hysterical:: my state!

RIP Randy.

His persona was so hysterically over the top. If people acted like that in reality they'd be committed to an institution!

Kinda reminds me of The Rock, when he was wrestling his interviews were also quite hilarious.  I could care less about the wrestling, I just want to see the interviews!

Now THAT reminds me of Roddy Piper.  Piper and Savage were two "bad" guys so entertaining to watch, they had to make them "good" guys because so many people were cheering them on anyway!  ::hysterical::
