Snap into a Slim Jim, OH YEAH!

Okay, okay, two blogs in one day, but being as how I recently blogged about my former love of wrestling, and today wrestling lost one of its greats, I had to write really quick. Word of his death spread pretty quickly around here, considering I live in central Florida.

CLEARWATER | The professional wrestler known as Randy "Macho Man" Savage has died in a car crash in Florida.
The Florida Highway Patrol says in a crash report that the 58-year-old former wrestler — whose legal name is Randy Mario Poffo — was driving a Jeep Wrangler when he lost control in Pinellas County around 9:25 a.m. The Jeep veered over the raised concrete median divider, crossed over the eastbound lanes and collided head-on with a tree.
Police say he may have suffered a medical event" before the accident, but the report did not elaborate, and it said officials would need to perform an autopsy to know for sure.
Savage's brother told E! Online that his brother suffered a heart attack behind the wheel.
The report confirms that the driver was the pro wrestler known as Randy Savage. A woman in the vehicle suffered minor injuries.

The news of this saddened me today. I was a fan of all the old school wrestlers, Hulk, Macho, Shawn Michaels, Sting, & Bret Hart.

My prayers are with the family, and all of his loved ones. May he rest in peace.
