Randy Savage was a well-known American professional wrestler, who was better known as “Macho Man.” He was initially called “The Spider” and later went by the ring name of “Randy Savage,” on the recommendation of his trainer, Terry Stephens. His father, who was a professional wrestler, too, started the ‘International Championship Wrestling’ (ICW) promotion, based in Lexington, Kentucky, to prepare Randy and his younger brother, Lanny, for a wrestling career. He appeared on ‘Tuesday Night Titans’ and made his pay-per-view debut at ‘The Wrestling Classic,’ in which he defeated The Dragon and Dynamite Kid, to lose to Junkyard Dog in the finals. Later, he won the ‘WWF Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship’ title, by defeating Santana at the ‘Boston Garden.’ He chose Miss Elizabeth as his manager and built his in-ring persona as a bully who mistreated Elizabeth. He later married her, but they divorced after eight years. He then married Barbara Lynn Payne. He had the distinction of winning the ‘AWA Southern Heavyweight Championship’ twice, the ‘National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) Mid-American Heavyweight Championship’ thrice, and the ‘World Championship Wrestling (WCW) World Heavyweight Championship’ four times. He died in Florida, at the age of 58, due to a sudden heart attack while driving his jeep.
