Last of the Upfronts: The CW

Just got the news. Randy “Macho Man” Savage died in a car accident in Florida. You almost wanna say, “Whew!” that he died in a car accident instead of a drug overdose or steroid complications, but that’s pretty lame to think right now. Macho Man was in my top 5 wrestlers of all time, easy. [...]
