As noted earlier today, “Macho Man” Randy Savage died today at the age of 58-years-old when he suffered a heart attack while driving his Jeep and subsequently lost control of his car. He died shortly afterward, as first broken by celebrity website TMZ. Since then, the wrestling community has erupted with wrestling stars commenting on his death, including names that used to work with the legend.
Hulk Hogan, for instance, who formed the “Mega Powers” with Savage in the late 1980s, posted the following tweet on his Twitter account shortly after the news was broken: “I’m completely devastated, after over 10 years of not talking with Randy, we’ve finally started to talk and communicate .. We miss him a lot. I feel horrible about the ten years of having no communication. This was a tough one .. I just pray that Randy’s happy and in a better place and we miss him.”
