A truly somber day to wrestling fans all over the world as a true legends in the sport, Randy "Macho Man" Savage passed away today at 58. He apparently had a heart attack while behind the wheel this morning. As one of my favorite wrestlers this hurt me that he is gone. The match between him and Ricky Steamboat at Wrestlemania is a classic, as well as his life long feud with Hulk Hogan. After wrestling he became even more famous with his role in Spiderman, and moreso for being the face of Slim Jim( SNAP INTO A SLIM JIM!!!)
When news broke my good friends over at History of Drinking( follow them on twittter @drinkinghistory ) posted a couple of Randy Savage cocktails to always have a piece of the Macho man with us always!! Check them out...
