Hulk Hogan -- We Had Finally Started to Talk Again ...

5/20/2011 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hulk Hogan says he's "completely devastated" by the death of Randy "Macho Man" Savage -- saying they just rekindled their friendship after not talking to each other for nearly ten years.

Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage


Hulk just went to his Twitter page and wrote, "I'm completely devastated, after over 10 years of not talking with Randy, we've finally started to talk and communicate."

He added, "He had so much life in his eyes & in his spirit, I just pray that he's happy and in a better place and we miss him."

"We miss him a lot. I feel horrible about the ten years of having no communication. This was a tough one."

And Hulk wasn't the only wrestling legend who took to Twitter ...

One of the greatest tag teams ever... The Mega Powers. Hulk Hogan & Macho Man Randy Savage with Miss Elizabeth as their manager. Then they were together again in the nWo. I knew they had a falling out but its good to see they finally got over it and were back on speaking terms. The wrestling world lost a legend today.

I was devastated when Hulk and Macho broke up their tag team and Macho Man "married" Miss Elizabeth. Ahh..those were the days of tv before all this reality madness. Just a good show of fake scripting and entertainment. I still say the Ohhh yeahh line when I see his SLim Jim commericials. Glad to hear that Hulk and randy were at least back on speaking terms. Their feud was always a well known story. RIP Mach Man. I will miss you!

Harveys nemesis    

Harvey goes to the gym to fulfill his fantasies of one day looking like a Macho Man but in reality, he will never be that buff or tuff. There was only one Macho Man.
But Harvey, since the world is coming to an end on Sat. you had better get your colonoscopy early tomorrow morning just in case. Wouldn't want you all clogged up for your final show.

the end of his marriage with ms elizabeth is the reason they stopped talking. hulk and his wife drove a huge wedge between them.
