Will WWE Pay Tribute To Savage?, & More Macho Man News
— According to one source, the WWE production team was ordered to work on a video piece honoring the wrestling legend for inclusion on next week’s television programming.
Another source noted that the organization would pay tribute to him in some form at this Sunday’s Over the Limit pay-per-view event in Seattle, Washington. However, they now say that no tribute is planned for Savage, at least for Sunday. As of now, something is expected to air Monday on RAW.
Meanwhile, WWE.com posted some videos highlighting his extravagant career. The videos are from WWE’s 2009 DVD release Randy Savage: Macho Madness.
Savage died Friday morning in Seminole, Florida after a head-on collision with a tree. Lanny Poffo, his brother, says the accident occurred after Savage suffered a heart attack while driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler. We’ve also learned that Randy was pronounced dead before his arrival to the hospital. He was 58 years old.
— In the New York Post’s story on Savage’s death, the author erroneously listed Ultimate Warrior as a wrestler from the 80s and 90s who had died. Ultimate Warrior’s death has been a strange misconception for a long time. FOX News also has a feature up on Savage’s death, which features an image gallery of several deceased wrestlers.
