WWE hall of famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat was in a state of shocker upon learning of the death of “Macho Man” Randy Savage. The two of course had one of the most famous matches in Wrestlemania history, there outstanding match for the Intercontinental championship at Wrestlemania III in Pontiac, Michigan. Steamboat admitted that the two weren’t close, but the news hit him really hard as told to the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer. Steamboat’s son had learned of the passing before it was reported, and informed “The Dragon.” Savage was notorious for keeping to himself in wrestling circles.
