The Big Turnbuckle In The Sky

by Nick Vitrano

I don't know exactly how it works when you die...don't know exactly where anybody has ended up...but I can only hope that wherever Randy Macho Man Savage/Poffo is right now, Miss Elizabeth is perched atop his shoulder.

On this date, 2011, Macho met his maker.

One of so many big names on the wrestling scene in the 80s and 90s, Savage always was my favorite, and it always bothered me the way Federation jobbed him down the stretch, especially post-career. There are a lot of rumors out there ranging from the basic - feud with the writers - to the more complex - hooked up with Vince McMahon's daughter, Stephanie. Whatever the reason, wrestling abandoned the man who never abandoned a good storyline.

R.I.P., Macho.
