    :(

    It will be interesting to see what World Wrestling Entertainment makes of this, since he was one of their very biggest stars ever, but they had not been on good terms for the last several years.

    He was one of my son's "heroes" back around 5th or 6th grade. It was at that time the World Wrestling Federation, and we watched faithfully every week. Quite a cast of characters.

    I was sad to hear about his passing. He was a favorite of mine as a kid. :(

    I have a photo of my husband and me with Randy Savage. We were at the Hasbro toy show in NYC, and Randy was the celebrity wrestler at the WWF action figure display. My husband is a big muscular guy, and Randy made a big deal about him - he followed us around and kept grabbing my husband from behind like he was going to start wresting him. Then he got the photographer and said "I want a picture with this guy" -- my husband made me come be in the photo because he didn't really want his picture with the guy. The photographer took 2 polariods - one for us and one for Randy. Randy has his arm around my husband and I am standing there looking like the third wheel on a date. There were a bunch of kids there, but Randy only had eyes for my husband. It was totally weird.

    ^^ I have to agree with you, that's really weird! But those guys
    get hit on the head a lot, plus a few substances here and there and we get a big bunch of weird people.
