Why do all these WWE guys die so young? Is it the steroid abuse?

This is just another obligatory press statement by the WWE, i.e. Vince McMahon. McMahon and Poffo hated each other, and now that Poffo is gone I'm willing to bet that he'll be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame next year.

Yeah, I noticed how they said "of his time"... That is total BS, he was one of the best ever. His name is just as big as Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair.. The wrestlers today are like melted candle wax compare to the Macho Man... RIP Randy Savage (Greatest of ALL time)
