It's been seven years since 'Macho Man' Randy Savage died unexpectedly of a heart attack in Seminole, Florida at 58.
Savage was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame four years later, but the wrestling world continues to mourn his untimely passing. Savage was one of the top superstars in WWF during the '80s and early '90s, helping Vince McMahon grow his product to an all-time high.
On Sunday, Savage's long-time frenemy Hulk Hogan posted a caring and touching message on his Twitter page.
7yrs who today Macho passed,rip my brother,only love4U HH— Hulk Hogan (@HulkHogan) May 20, 2018
Hogan and Savage were by far the two biggest superstars in the WWF, and the pair of legends formed the iconic 'Mega Powers' tag team. Managed by the late Miss Elizabeth - the ex-wife of Savage - the duo dominated the wrestling world from 1987-91, prior to their shocking breakup.
Though Savage and Hogan worked closely for many years in both the WWF and WCW, the two superstars had a tough relationship backstage. Savage allegedly thought Hogan was having an affair with Elizabeth, and he even blamed Hulk and his ex-wife, Linda, for their eventual divorce.
On top of that, Savage released a rap album, Be a Man, where he took a handful of shots in Hogan. In the lyrics, the Macho Man said "Hollywood Hulkster" was at "the end of his rope," and that he'd "wash Hogan's mouth with soap."
There was another story about Hogan also coming across Savage and trying to make peace, but the Macho Man refused. But according to Hogan, he and Savage were close to burying the hatchet and were planning to meet for a barbeque before the Macho Man's tragic and shocking death.
We don't know for sure if Hogan and Savage ever settled their differences and made up, but we do know The Hulkster still cares about and mourns his old friend. It was a thoughtful message by Hogan, regardless of their rocky working relationship.
