Writing on his twitter page, he said: “I’m completely devastated, after over 10 years of not talking with Randy, we’ve finally started to talk and communicate.
“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.

He tweeted: “RIP Randy “Macho Man” Savage – you were one of my childhood inspirations and heros. Strength, love and prayers to the Savage/Poffo family. (sic)”
Randy is survived by his second wife Lynn Payne – with whom he recently celebrated his first wedding anniversary – who was a passenger in the vehicle he was driving, but escaped from the collision with “minor injuries”.
