R.I.P. Randy Savage

Today marks a sad day as I just learned that Randy Poffo a.k.a 'Macho Man' Randy Savage passed away in a car accident due to a heart attack. The accident occurred in the Tampa area, so it has been all over my local news. As a kid, Macho Man was one of my favorite wrestlers due to his eccentric interviews and ridiculous outfits. In the ring, he was a constant source of entertainment and a character I would often find myself using in video games. The flood of Randy Savage posts on my Facebook newsfeed act as a reminder that he was very well-known in pro wrestling and his Slim Jim commercials. I will never forget his catchphrase, "Ooh yea!", nor his entrance to the tune of "Pomp and Circumstance." Later today, I will be walking to Wilson Farms to purchase a Slim Jim in his honor.
