WWE & TNA Issue Statements Regarding Randy Savage’s Death

Both WWE and TNA Wrestling have issued statements concerning the passing of “Macho Man” Randy Savage, who died in an automobile accident Friday morning in Largo, Florida.

WWE stated:

“WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of one of the greatest Superstars of his time, Randy Poffo, a.k.a. Randy “Macho Man” Savage. Poffo was under contract with WWE from 1985 to 1993 and held both the WWE and Intercontinental Championships. Our sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends. We wish a speedy recovery to his wife Lynn. Poffo will be greatly missed by WWE and his fans.”

TNA stated:

“TNA joins the entire wrestling world in mourning the passing of the legendary “Macho Man” Randy Savage

“Savage was one of the most talented athletes to ever compete inside a wrestling ring. He truly transcended professional wrestling, becoming one of the true “icons” of our sport. Millions of wrestling fans grew up watching Savage battle other legends such as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Ricky Steamboat and many more.

“Savage appeared with TNA during our 2004 “Victory Road” and “Turning Point” events – memorable moments that we hope wrestling fans will never forget.

“TNA hopes all of our fans remember Randy Savage’s amazing life and career, and how he helped shape the sport as we know it today.”

    I think Randy and Liz should be inducted into the hall of fame together.since they were the first couple of the WWE.

    @CC: Exactly. I couldn’t have said it any better myself.

  • venom

    I hope WWE plays a video for Savage on Raw next week.

  • mark

    Now is not the time to have a go at anyone. Good statements by both organisations !!!!

  • The X

    Bill, as much of a fan I am of the Rock, this ain’t about him right now. Randy Savage was a true entertainer and gem in wrestling and he’ll be missed.

  • CC

    Some of you need to grow the fuck up. You call WWE cold and insult Vince, when what you should be doing is putting that shit aside and just think about Savage, as you are no better just using someones death to bash Vince and WWE.
    Difference between Vince and a lot of the guys in WWE is they knew him personally, so who are you guys to judge them over a statement?
    For all you know, Vince is crying now over how he wishes that things had not taken so long to sort out between them, and misses a guy he knew.

    Stop using someones death to be petty bitter pricks.

  • Bill

    Put him in the Hall of Fame! He’s from Florida, too, so no “It’s Rock’s hometown, he should be inducted first”. I say, they should have Rock announce that Macho Man is in the HOF, then Vince comes out, & says there’s one more inductee, & they show a video package of the Rock.

    I “Heard” he was, but, depends where he does it at…Hell, TNA…OOOPS i mean Impact Wrestling might jump on him to come back and do it seeing how its gettin lot of “hits” on the web

  • kannon

    Mochismo should do something to honor Savage.

  • Gary

    WWE doesnt care about its workers, WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO NOTICE THAT! they release the same piss poor excuse for a “remebernce” everytime someone dies that worked for them.

    Also, TNA was the last company to have Savage in a match :), ima miss him so damn much, screw it, Ima go around yellin “Ohhhhhhhhhhh Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah” all day

    Macho Man helped establish WWE as the dominant wrestling company. Their statement was cold, as though they had to search their records to confirm that he ever worked for them. Shame on the WWE.

  • Mabry

    It amazing how the passing of someone you never knew personally, can sadden you. Thats the passion and love that us “wrestling” fans feel for this wonderful business. this is one of the saddest days ever….TNA and WWE should get together and make one big show in tribute to the great Randy Savage, thats how big he was/is and how much he deserves…….RIP Randy “Macho Man” Savage you´ll allways be in our memories and hearts….

  • Howe

    Thank God Vince got over whatever issues he had with savage to issue that statement. Macho Man, RIP. As Shannon Moore said, he was definitely one of the reasons that I loved wrestling.
