Who Was Macho Man’s Second Wife?
Lynn Payne, a professional wrestler from the United States, was Macho Man’s (Randy Savage’s) second wife, whom he married in 2010.
According to some reports, Lynn and Randy dated back in 1974 when he was a baseball star.
When Randy was playing minor league baseball for the Tampa Tarpons, the pair met on the beach.
Lynn and Randy were together for about two years before splitting up after Randy’s rise to popularity as a “Macho Man” in professional wrestling.
However, they married 30 years later on the same beach where they first met.
Their marriage came to an end in 2011 when Macho Man died in a car accident after suffering a heart attack.
The automobile lost control and slammed into a tree, killing him and wounding his wife Lynn Payne, who was riding shotgun. He was 58 years old at the time.
Macho Man is best remembered for his time in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW) (WCW).
During his 32-year career, he held 29 championship reigns and 11 championships, including two as WWF World Heavyweight Champion and four as WCW World Heavyweight Champion.
He had similar drawing power to Hulk Hogan as WWF Champion.
He was a one-time WWF Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion, and WWE ranked him the greatest titleholder of all time, praising his “outstanding in-ring performances” for “adding a higher level of credibility to the title.”
