The news came to me on texts, voice-mails, and emails as I was coming off the flight that Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka and I were on from Philadelphia to San Jose, California (I am hosting the Big Time Wrestling WrestleFest in Newark, California tomorrow at the Pavilion and Snuka is one of the guests).

I could not believe that Savage had been in a horrid accident and died. There is so much history, so many things that ran through my mind.

I just did an interview with Bret Hart about Randy’s death and I hope to be able to upload it for you to see later today (I am on a hotel computer — this is the one time I didn’t bring my laptop with my video editing program).

Lanny Poffo, Randy’s brother was to be here — arriving today — but I am told he has turned around (he was making a connection at an airport) and is on his way home.

Our sincerest condolences are extended to the family, friends, and fans of “Macho Man.”
