Rhodes Comments On Randy Savage, Dead Wrestlers Showcased



– WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes spoke with The Associated Press Friday regarding the death of Randy Savage.

“There’s probably five or six of us, with Andre (the Giant) and (Hulk) Hogan and thankfully myself and (Ric) Flair, that, when their names pop up, even if you’re not a fan, you know who in the hell these people are,” said Rhodes.

“You say, ‘I know this guy. I know Macho Man Randy Savage.’ He was part of that breed. We lost a good one… He was a recluse, almost. Whatever he was doing, he wanted that privacy. Yeah, he was out of the picture for 10 years, but he didn’t want to be in the picture.

The article is available here.

– FoxNews.com has posted a slideshow gallery showcasing two dozen deceased professional wrestlers including Randy Savage, Chris Benoit, Miss Elizabeth, Umaga and Giant Gonzalez, among others.

In a trivia note, Savage was the seventh member of the New World Order (nWo) faction to pass away, following Louie Spicolli, Rick Rude, Curt Hennig, Miss Elizabeth, Big Bubba Rogers and Brian Adams.
