We lost a legend today when Randy Poffo, AKA “Macho Man” Randy Savage passed on.  He was a one of a kind performer, ahead of his time, and a true legend in the sport of professional wrestling.  May God rest his soul and be with his family in this difficult time.

The Madness will live on.

R.I.P. Lance Cade (1981-2010)

Former WWE wrestler Lance Cade passed away today, apparently of heart failure.  I’m deeply saddened to hear this.  I always thought he was a very good wrestler who had a ton of superstar potential.  Unfortunately, it seems his personal demons held him back.  His death is shocking, as just last week I was watching him wrestle on a recent All Japan show.

The first live wrestling show I ever went to was a WWE house show in September 2005, and the very first match on that show was The Hurricane & Rosey defending the World Tag Team Championship against the recently debuted Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch.  This was just a week before the Unforgiven PPV where Cade & Murdoch won the titles.

I’m very sad at his passing.  It’s always a tragedy when a young man dies an untimely death.  It’s times like this that make me realize what a sleazy business wrestling is, and it makes me question why I have such a passion for it.

Chris Klucsaritis, who wrestled in WCW and WWE as Chris Kanyon and Mortis, passed away today at the age of 40.  R.I.P.  I was always a big fan of the guy, and I’m sad to see him go.
