For any wrestling fans (current or former), the Macho Man has passed. He suffered a heart attack while driving and had a car accident. He wasn't my favourite wrestler but I used to enjoy watching him a lot.

?Macho Man' Randy Savage dies in car crash

It's amazing to see how many of the guys I used to watch in WCW and the WWF (WWE) in the '90s are gone now. A lot of these guys have very rough lives after wrestling. Jake the Snake is a mess, Ric Flair still has to wrestle to pay all of his ex wives and is a very sad figure now. Sadly, Randy Savage didn't seem to be one of those.

i used to be into bodybuilding and youd get the occasional pro wrestler in workin out while in the area .. heard some crazy stories . they would be so afraid of losing thier jobs . they would perform seriously hurt and just drink the pain away. you mix that with the painkillers ans the steroids they needed just to stay functional .. that seriously messes a body up.
im sure they will blame it on steroids without any factual evidence .. like all the other scapegoats.

Unfortunately you're exactly right. Just look at what happened with Chris Benoit. The guy was legit crazy and just went over the edge. Of course, it was blamed on "roid rage".

I was such a TOM BOY growing up.....well I still am I guess. Anyways, I used to live to watch the old school WWF back in the day! Loved it! I was always amazed at the size of Andre the giant. I liked Jake the snake, macho man, rowdy roddy piper, and Hulk hogan were my favs.....hack saw Jim duggan was a riot too.

RIP Macho!!

You know Aus and Moto you guys are both right, it is sad, even Hulk Hogan is having to wrestle to pay his bills. Sgt. Slaughter has been coming out more and more lately and so sad what happened to Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero and his widow who has now been remarried like twice or so they say in the WWE. lol. Man just upsets me, I'm gonna miss these guys. And has anyone seen the Von Eric's granddaughter wrestling, man oh man I'm getting old. lol

I have pictures with the Von Erics! My mom was a dental assistant in Aledo, TX and they used to come to the convenient store at the end of the strip center her office was in!
Hulk Hogan scared me as a baby...he picked me up with his hands under my armpits and hurt me, so I didn't like him!

Yeah, Tye, I have had the misfortune of seeing Lacey Von Erich "wrestle". She has a good look and she's pretty tall but she moves like an apartment block. Not very believable really. Speaking of female wrestlers, Chyna was back in the ring for TNA wrestling last weekend. She's still got it!

It's sad...My uncle use to underground wrestle & was really tough on him. Though he's always had a rough life. Awesome dude but not one to f' around with. He's still a little messed up from roiding & other 'meds' back in the day

That's sad to hear but not uncommon in that world. Between the injuries, drugs (performance enhancers, painkillers, alcohol) it's amazing any of them survive their 20s. All in the name of entertainment! Hope he's doing ok.
