Randy Savage, Dead at 58


I spent the first seven years of my life in the 80s, and wrestling was a huge part of that growing phase. I cheered when Macho Man proposed to Ms. Elizabeth, to which she said "Ooh, yeah!", I booed when Ric Flair photoshopped himself into pictures with Elizabeth, claiming to be having an affair. I remember his classic battles with Ricky Steamboat and Hulk Hogan. I remember his departure from WWF to his welcomed stint in WCW, where he played heel by joining Hogan's nWo regime, then later defying the group to join the nWo Wolfpac. I also remember the flying elbow drops, the tasseled outfits, the sunglasses, the bandannas, the Slim-Jim commercials, the entrance music.  I remember everything. Rest in Peace, Macho Man. It's time for your Match Made in Heaven.
