“MACHO MAN” RANDY SAVAGE KILLED IN CAR ACCIDENT

Randy Macho Man Savage Rapture heaven

Since we started the week with an untimely death in the music world, I figured I’d finish it off with another celebrity passing to get us good n’ soft for the coming of the Raptors (that’s what all the hubbub is about, right?)  Randall Mario Poffo, better known as former WWF/WWE superstar wrestler “Macho Man” Randy Savage, was killed in Florida this morning at the age of 58 after suffering a heart attack resulting in a fatal car accident.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Savage was driving his Jeep Wrangler when he veered across a concrete median, through oncoming traffic, and “collided head-on with a tree.” He was transported to Largo Medical Center, where he died. Savage’s wife of one year, Lynn, was a passenger but sustained only minor injuries, according to TMZ.

Savage’s brother, Lanny Poffo told TMZ that the wrestler suffered a heart attack while he was driving and then lost control of the vehicle.  [via MSNBC]

You may be wondering what the hell this has to do with music news.  And if you are, I may be wondering why you’re such a deprived idiot.  Because in 2003, Macho Man burst onto the music scene with the seminal rap album Be a Man.  The title track is embedded below, in which he lambasts Hulk Hogan for being such a Hollywood p*ssy.

Man, I never liked wrestling, but I love my friends’ impersonations of Macho Man, and I dig his unbridled hatred for Hulk Hogan.  Oh, and Slim Jims.  I love Slim Jims.  As a matter of fact, if you need me, I’ll be in the snack aisle at Shop Rite.  Or is it candy?  Or beef?  Where the f*ck would I find it?  Eh, I’ll just stick to the check-out counter at Wawa.
