– In this video, WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan talks about “Macho Man” Randy Savage and how his wife was close with Miss Elizabeth since they traveled together. Duggan also says he enjoyed working with Savage in WWE since he could brawl and fly.
Speaking of Miss Elizabeth, today marks the 13th anniversary of her passing. On May 1, 2003, in Marietta, Georgia, live-in boyfriend Lex Luger called 9-1-1 to report that Elizabeth was not breathing. She did not respond to mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and paramedics rushed her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead. A medical examiner listed her cause of death as “acute toxicity”, brought on by a mix of painkillers and vodka. She was 42-years-old.
