|R.I.P. Macho Man|
Also in the car was his 2nd wife Lynn, who was sitting in the passenger side survived with "minor injuries". They only been married for a short time, about a year. Florida Highway Police say he suffered a heart attack at the wheel of his 2009 Jeep Wrangler & then hit a tree. Alcohol wasn't a factor they say.
My Memories of the Macho Man go back to 1985 when he 1st arrived in the WWF (that's Old School WWE Kids). He was a Heel at the time (that's a Bad Guy to you people unfamiliar with Wraslin' talk).
He became an even bigger Heel when he attack one of the WWF's biggest Babyfaces at the time (That's A Good Guy folks) Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat with a ringside bell, crushing his throat!

This built up for the Dragon's revenge at WrestleMainia 3. Together Savage & Steamboat stole the show in one of the Greatest Matches of all Time!
Staemboat later commented on the WWE's Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat DVD that after the show all the wrestlers congratulated them on their performance.
He would later have other great matches in his 30 year career with the likes of Jake "the Snake" Roberts, "the Nature Boy" Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, & others. But that one has a special place in my heart, taking me back to a time when I was a young boy watching something that was real to me. I hung on everything that they did in the match.

Later on when I was a teenager Wrestling became the Big Thing in the 1990s & the Macho Man was there in the forefront as a member of the infamous NWO in Ted Turner's WCW.
