Pro-wrestling legend Randy Savage (born Randall Mario Poffo) is dead. He suffered a heart-attack while driving, lost control of his car, and ultimately died from injuries sustained in the subsequent crash. His wife, traveling with him, survived with only minor injuries.
He was "only" 58 years old, which is comparatively young for most people but, tragically, not so for men in his particular profession; who routinely put their bodies through incredible amounts of punishment in their "prime." If I remembered offhand what his "greatest" match was, I'd try to find a clip and post it - anybody recall?
