A Complete History of WrestleMania Personalities Dying Before the Age of 60

Randy Savage (Randy Poffo), 58

WrestleMania Record: 7 - 4
WrestleMania Appearances: WrestleMania II (defeated George "The Animal" Steele); WrestleMania III (lost the WWF Intercontinental Title to Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat); WrestleMania IV (defeated Butch Reed, defeated Greg Valentine, defeated One Man Gang and defeated Ted DiBiase for the vacant WWF Championship) WrestleMania V (lost the WWF Championship to Hulk Hogan); WrestleMania VI (with Sensational Queen Sherri, lost to Dusty Rhodes and Sapphire); WrestleMania VII (lost to the Ultimate Warrior); WrestleMania VIII (defeated Ric Flair for the WWF Championship); WrestleMania X (defeated Crush)

Career Highlight: Macho Man had the girl (Miss Elizabeth), the fancy robe, the awesome theme music ("Pomp and Circumstance"), the catch phrase ("Ohhhhhhh yeahhhhh") and the iconic shades—let's not talk about his ridiculous rap career—but beneath all the bells and whistles was one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. At WrestleMania III, Savage and Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat stole the show from Andre and Hogan with their fast-paced mat classic.
