Bummer, read about that, one of the few I remember watching when I was a kid. Glad his wife was ok (he had a heart attack while driving and died from hitting a tree but she survived). Didn't recognize him in the pic though:

Heard Vince loathes the guy (a rumour comes to mind involving a very young Stephanie McMahon?) so a HOF spot may not happen unless the public really gets behind it I guess (?)

RIP Macho

Of course...it's all rumour!

Well I'll admit that wrestling was once a guilty pleasure of mine, maybe up until 10 years ago or so... But back when Eddie Guerrero died (One of my all time favorites) I watched the HoF-ceremony where he was posthumously inducted, that was some touching stuff man :/

I've also heard the Stephanie/Savage rumor, but I got the impressions that the relationship had gotten better the last few years. They worked on DVDs together, put him back in their video-games and so on... Really a shame he had to go how and when he did... Sad day :/

A rumor that would have likely been confirmed or denied this year as Wrestlemania will be in Miami (Macho's home city), he and the Rock were the favorites to be inducted this year. Now we'll never know.

Jay "Black Machismo" Lethal...wrote a poem:

Quote:
You were a tower of power that was too sweet to be sour,
You were funky like a monkey every minute of every hour.
For you, space was the place and time distortion had to be,
And your fans here on earth wanted the madness for eternity.
You met every challenge with fists clinched and face to face,
You even fought and defeats dragons and snakes.
Flying off the ropes with an elbow drop,
There was no way you could ever be stopped.
Identifiable by your voice alone,
Even being Dubbed the macho king while you sat on your throne.
We hung on your words with interviews memorable and classic,
And we knew it was serious when you took off your glasses.
I promise not to lose you in the sands of time,
For you will always be that all time hero of mine.
