Restoran Tampa, Florida, preuzeće novi vlasnici

Hoganova plaža više neće biti s temom Hulka Hogana.

Očekuje se da će se restoran Hogan's Beach s temom Hulka Hogana zatvoriti i rebrendirati kako bi izrezao sve teme hrvača.

Vlasnik restorana Ben Mallah rekao je da se Hoganova plaža i susjedni hotel Best Western Bay Harbour-Tampa prodaju novim vlasnicima.

"Imali smo dvije i po godine rada s tom markom", rekao je Mallah za Tampa Bay Times. “Vrijeme je za novi brend. Sve se menja. ”

Nejasno je kada će novi vlasnici preuzeti vlast, ali za sada je restoran i dalje otvoren.

Rebrending restorana povezan je sa videom koji se pojavio na stranici Hogan na a rasističko buncanje ranije ove godine. Hoganova plaža otvorena je od 31. decembra 2012.

Hoganova plaža je prošle godine imala problema s postavljanjem "rasistički kodeks oblačenja, ”Kako bi se isključili svi koji nose široku odjeću, visoke tenisice, šešire koji se nose bočno ili unatrag, krpe ili odjeću za vježbanje. No, „zabava na plaži i odjeća za plažu su potrebni“, što znači da se bikinije ohrabruje. Hogan je odgovorio na ovaj dress code i rekao: "Nisam rasista!"


Rvač poznat kao ‘Macho Man ’ umire u olupini Fla

Randy & quot; Macho Man & quot; Savage, ličnost veća od života iz profesionalnog hrvanja i vrhunca leta u laktu 1980-ih godina poznatih po hrapavom glasu, drskom stilu i mladoj ženi po imenu Miss Elizabeth koja ga je često pratila, poginula je u sudaru u petak na Floridi . Imao je 58 godina.

U izvještaju sudara patrole autoceste Floride navodi se da je bivši rvač & mdash čije je službeno ime Randy Mario Poffo & mdash upravljao Jeep Wranglerom kada je izgubio kontrolu u okrugu Pinellas oko 9:25 sati. Jeep je skrenuo preko podignute srednje razdjelnice, prešao preko istoka trakama i čelo se sudario u drvo.

Policija je rekla da je on možda pretrpio "kvomedicinski događaj" prije nesreće, ali izvještaj nije detaljno razradio, te je rečeno da će službenici morati obaviti obdukciju da bi bili sigurni.

U izvještaju se navodi da je žena u vozilu, identifikovana kao Barbara L. Poffo (56), zadobila lakše povrede. U saopćenju iz Stamforda, World Wrestling Entertainment, sa sjedištem u saveznoj državi Conn., Kaže se da je putnica sadašnja supruga rvača. Obojica su vezani pojasevima, prema policijskom izvještaju.

& quotPoffo će jako nedostajati WWE -u i njegovim fanovima, - navodi se u saopćenju.

Savage je bio harizmatični hrvač koji se proslavio svojim nadimkom & quotMacho Man & quot i svojom & quotOooh Yeah! & Quot krilaticom. Bio je prvak u Svjetskoj rvačkoj federaciji Vincea McMahona i#8217s, a kasnije i Ted Turner koji je sada već nestao sa Svjetskog prvenstva u rvanju.

Poffo je imao ugovor s WWE -om od 1985. do 1993. i držao je i WWE i Interkontinentalna prvenstva.

& quotNaše iskreno saučešće upućuje njegovoj porodici i prijateljima. Njegovoj supruzi želimo brz oporavak ", rekao je WWE.

Savage je definirao megavatne ličnosti Svjetske rvačke federacije iz 1980-ih (sada WWE). Nosio je haljine sa šljokicama okićene ogrtačem & quot; Mačo Man & quot; na leđima, kaubojske šešire u boji duge i šarene bandane i prevelike sunčane naočale, dio jedinstvenog izgleda koji je pomogao da se WWF pretvori u mainstream fenomen.

Veći dio svoje karijere uz njega je bila njegova sobarica, gospođica Elizabeth. Žena, Elizabeth Hulette, u to je vrijeme bila njegova supruga iz stvarnog života. Kasnije su se razveli, a Hulette je umrla 2003. u 42. godini, što je kasnije proglašeno predoziranjem lijekova na recept.

Savageova smrt nije bila prva koja je iznenadila rvački svijet.

Chris Benoit je ubio svoju ženu i sina, a zatim izvršio samoubistvo u njihovoj kući u Georgiji 2007. Benoit je imao 40 godina.

Eddie Guerrero imao je 38 godina kada je umro od srčanog udara 2005. godine nakon istorije problema sa alkoholom i drogama.

Curt & quotMr. Savršeni Hennig umro je od predoziranja kokainom 2003. godine u 44. godini. Iste godine Michael & QuotRoad Warrior Hawk & Hegstrand umro je od srčanog udara u 46. godini. Borio se s alkoholom i drogama, kao i sa steroidima.

1999. hrvač Owen Hart (33) ubijen je prilikom pada s aparata dok su ga spuštali u prsten sa plafona Kemper Arene u Kansas Cityju, Mo.

WWF je učinio Savage svojim šampionom nakon pobjede nad Tedom DiBiaseom u glavnom događaju na WrestleManiji 1988.

Savage se nije pojavio u velikoj rvačkoj organizaciji od 2004. godine, kada je nastupio za Total Nonstop Action.

Ponekad je bio i najpopularniji i najomraženiji hrvač u zabavi. Njegov leteći lakat s gornjeg užeta posvuda su oponašali hrvači iz podruma i dvorišta. Savage je dobro iskoristio svoj duboki, hrapavi glas i kao korporativni pičmen, godinama naređujući obožavateljima Slim Jima da & quotSnap postane Slim Jim! & Quot

Najpoznatiji je po svojim legendarnim rivalstvima s Hulkom Hoganom, Rickyjem Steamboatom i Ricom Flairom. Rvači su se oglasili na Twitteru kako bi obožavateljima dali do znanja da Savage nije pobijedio i da#8217 neće biti zaboravljen.

& quotThere ’ vjerovatno nas ima pet ili šest, s Andreom (Divom) i Hoganom i na sreću ja i Flair, da, kad se njihova imena pojave, čak i ako niste ljubitelj, znate ko su dođavola ti ljudi ", rekao je bivši rvač i WWE Hall of Fame Dusty Rhodes. & quotKažete, ‘ poznajem ovog tipa. Znam Macho Man Randy Savage. ’ Bio je dio te pasmine. Izgubili smo dobar. & Quot

Dwayne & quot; Rock & quot Johnson je pozdravio Savagea kao jednu od svojih inspiracija i heroja iz djetinjstva, dok je Mick & quotCactus Jack & Foley nazvao Savage & quotone mojih omiljenih izvođača. & Quot

Hogan je rekao da su on i Savage tek nakon 10 godina ponovo počeli razgovarati.

& quotOn je imao toliko života u očima & u duhu, samo se molim da je sretan i na boljem mjestu i da nam nedostaje, napisao je Hogan.

Iako je toliko ljudi koji su napustili WWF otišli na WCW, poput Hogana, Roddyja Pipera i Mean Genea Okerlunda, dobrodošli u kompaniju i čak uvedeni u Kuću slavnih, Savage se nikada nije vratio.

Rhodes je rekao da je Savage razborito uštedio svoj novac i da je zadovoljan što nije bio u centru pažnje.

"On je skoro bio samotnjak", rekao je Rhodes telefonom. & quotŠta god da je radio, želio je tu privatnost. Da, 10 godina nije bio na slici, ali nije želio biti na slici. & Quot

Savage je 1970 -ih bio hvatač manje lige za St. Louis i Cincinnati prije nego što se u uniformi okrenuo hulahopkama. Njegov otac, Angelo Poffo, bio je dugogodišnji hrvač, a njegov brat, "Skačući" Lanny Poffo, također je bio oslonac WWF -a 1980 -ih. Saučešće fanova stiglo je u petak na Facebook stranicu Lannyja Poffoa#8217.

Pogrebni aranžmani nisu bili odmah dostupni.

AP Sportski pisac Dan Gelston iz Philadelphije dao je doprinos ovom izvještaju.

"On je skoro bio samotnjak", rekao je Rhodes telefonom. & quotŠta god da je radio, želio je tu privatnost. Da, 10 godina nije bio na slici, ali nije želio biti na slici. & Quot

Savage je 1970 -ih bio hvatač manje lige za St. Louis i Cincinnati prije nego što se u uniformi okrenuo hulahopkama. Njegov otac, Angelo Poffo, bio je dugogodišnji hrvač, a njegov brat, "Skačući" Lanny Poffo, također je bio oslonac WWF -a 1980 -ih. Saučešće fanova stiglo je u petak na Facebook stranicu Lannyja Poffoa#8217.

Rvač poznat kao ‘Macho Man ’ umire u olupini Fla

Randy & quot; Maccho Man & quot; Savage, ličnost veća od života iz profesionalnog hrvanja i vrhunca leta u laktu 1980-ih godina poznatih po hrapavom glasu, drskom stilu i mladoj ženi po imenu Miss Elizabeth koja ga je često pratila, poginula je u saobraćajnoj nesreći u petak na Floridi . Imao je 58 godina.

U izvještaju sudara patrole autoceste Floride navodi se da je bivši rvač & mdash čije je službeno ime Randy Mario Poffo & mdash upravljao Jeep Wranglerom kada je izgubio kontrolu u okrugu Pinellas oko 9:25 sati. trakama i čelo se sudario u drvo.

Policija je rekla da je on možda pretrpio "kvomedicinski događaj" prije nesreće, ali izvještaj nije detaljno razradio, te je rečeno da će službenici morati obaviti obdukciju kako bi bili sigurni.

U izvještaju se navodi da je žena u vozilu, identifikovana kao Barbara L. Poffo (56), zadobila lakše povrede. U saopćenju iz Stamforda, World Wrestling Entertainment, sa sjedištem u Conn-u, kaže se da je putnica sadašnja supruga rvača. Obojica su vezani pojasevima, prema policijskom izvještaju.

& quotPoffo će jako nedostajati WWE -u i njegovim fanovima, navodi se u saopćenju.

Savage je bio karizmatični hrvač koji se proslavio svojim nadimkom & quotMacho Man & quot i svojom & quotOooh Yeah! & Quot krilaticom. Bio je prvak u Svjetskoj rvačkoj federaciji Vincea McMahona i#8217s, a kasnije i Ted Turner koji je već počivao na Svjetskom prvenstvu u rvanju.

Poffo je imao ugovor s WWE -om od 1985. do 1993. i držao je i WWE i Interkontinentalna prvenstva.

& quotNaše iskreno saučešće upućuje njegovoj porodici i prijateljima. Njegovoj supruzi želimo brz oporavak ", rekao je WWE.

Savage je definirao megavatne ličnosti Svjetske rvačke federacije iz 1980-ih (sada WWE). Nosio je haljine sa šljokicama okićene ogrtačem & quot; Mačo Man & quot; na leđima, kaubojske šešire boje duge i šarene bandane i prevelike sunčane naočale, dio jedinstvenog izgleda koji je pomogao WWF-u da postane mainstream fenomen.

Veći dio svoje karijere njegova sobarica, gospođica Elizabeth, bila je uz njega. Žena, Elizabeth Hulette, u to je vrijeme bila njegova supruga iz stvarnog života. Kasnije su se razveli, a Hulette je umrla 2003. u 42. godini, što je kasnije presuđeno predoziranjem lijekova na recept.

Savageova smrt nije bila prva koja je iznenadila rvački svijet.

Chris Benoit je ubio svoju ženu i sina, a zatim izvršio samoubistvo u njihovoj kući u Georgiji 2007. Benoit je imao 40 godina.

Eddie Guerrero imao je 38 godina kada je 2005. godine umro od srčanog udara nakon istorije problema sa alkoholom i drogama.

Curt & quotMr. Savršeni "Hennig" umro je od predoziranja kokainom 2003. u 44. godini. Iste godine, Michael "Quote Warrior Hawk" Hegstrand umro je od srčanog udara u 46. godini. Borio se s alkoholom i drogama, kao i sa steroidima.

1999. hrvač Owen Hart (33) ubijen je prilikom pada s aparata dok su ga spuštali u prsten sa plafona Kemper Arene u Kansas Cityju, Mo.

WWF je učinio Savage svojim šampionom nakon pobjede nad Tedom DiBiaseom u glavnom događaju na WrestleManiji 1988.

Savage se nije pojavio u velikoj rvačkoj organizaciji od 2004. godine, kada je nastupio za Total Nonstop Action.

Ponekad je bio i najpopularniji i najomraženiji hrvač u zabavi. Njegov leteći lakat s gornjeg užeta posvuda su oponašali hrvači iz podruma i dvorišta. Savage je dobro iskoristio svoj duboki, hrapavi glas i kao korporativni pičmen, godinama naređujući obožavateljima Slim Jima da & quotSnap postane Slim Jim! & Quot

Najpoznatiji je po svojim legendarnim rivalstvima s Hulkom Hoganom, Rickyjem Steamboatom i Ricom Flairom. Rvači su se oglasili na Twitteru kako bi obožavateljima dali do znanja da Savage nije pobijedio i da#8217 neće biti zaboravljen.

& quotThere ’ vjerovatno nas ima pet ili šest, s Andreom (Divom) i Hoganom i na sreću ja i Flair, da, kad se njihova imena pojave, čak i ako niste ljubitelj, znate ko su dođavola ti ljudi ", rekao je bivši rvač i WWE Hall of Fame Dusty Rhodes. & quotKažete, ‘ poznajem ovog tipa. Znam Macho Man Randy Savage. ’ Bio je dio te pasmine. Izgubili smo dobar. & Quot

Dwayne & quot; Rock & quot Johnson je pozdravio Savagea kao jednu od svojih inspiracija i heroja iz djetinjstva, dok je Mick & quotCactus Jack & Foley nazvao Savage & quotone mojih omiljenih izvođača. & Quot

Hogan je rekao da su on i Savage tek nakon 10 godina ponovo počeli razgovarati.

& quotOn je imao toliko života u očima & u duhu, samo se molim da je sretan i na boljem mjestu i da nam nedostaje, napisao je Hogan.

Iako je toliko ljudi koji su napustili WWF otišli na WCW, poput Hogana, Roddyja Pipera i Mean Genea Okerlunda, dobrodošli u kompaniju, pa čak i uvedeni u Kuću slavnih, Savage se nikada nije vratio.

Savage je definirao megavatne ličnosti Svjetske rvačke federacije iz 1980-ih (sada WWE). He wore sequined robes bejeweled with "Macho Man" on the back, rainbow-colored cowboy hats and colorful bandanas and oversized sunglasses, part of a unique look that helped build the WWF into a mainstream phenomenon.

For most of his career, his valet, Miss Elizabeth, was by his side. The woman, Elizabeth Hulette, was his real-life wife at the time. They later divorced, and Hulette died in 2003 at 42 in what was later ruled a prescription drug overdose.

Savage’s death was not the first to catch the wrestling world by surprise.

Chris Benoit killed his wife and son and then committed suicide in their Georgia home in 2007 Benoit was 40.

Eddie Guerrero was 38 when he died of a heart attack in 2005 after a history of alcohol and drug problems.

Curt "Mr. Perfect" Hennig died of a cocaine overdose in 2003 at 44. That same year, Michael "Road Warrior Hawk" Hegstrand died from a heart attack at 46. He had battled alcohol and drugs, as well as steroids.

In 1999, wrestler Owen Hart, 33, was killed when he fell from an apparatus as he was being lowered into the ring from the ceiling of Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Mo.

The WWF made Savage their champion after a win over Ted DiBiase in the main event at WrestleMania in 1988.

Savage had not appeared for a major wrestling organization since 2004, when he performed for Total Nonstop Action.

He was at times both the most popular and most hated wrestler in entertainment. His flying elbow off the top rope was mimicked by basement and backyard wrestlers everywhere. Savage made good use of his deep, raspy voice as a corporate pitchman as well, for years ordering Slim Jim fans to "Snap into a Slim Jim!"

He’s most known for his legendary rivalries with Hulk Hogan, Ricky Steamboat and Ric Flair. Wrestlers took to Twitter to let fans know Savage won’t be forgotten.

"There’s probably five or six of us, with Andre (the Giant) and Hogan and thankfully myself and Flair, that, when their names pop up, even if you’re not a fan, you know who in the hell these people are," said former wrestler and WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes. "You say, ‘I know this guy. I know Macho Man Randy Savage.’ He was part of that breed. We lost a good one."

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson hailed Savage as one of his childhood inspirations and heroes, while Mick "Cactus Jack" Foley called Savage "one of my favorite performers."

Hogan said he and Savage had just started talking again after 10 years.

"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," Hogan wrote.

While so many personalities who left the WWF for WCW like Hogan, Roddy Piper and Mean Gene Okerlund were welcomed back to the company and even inducted into the Hall of Fame, Savage never returned.

Rhodes said Savage had prudently saved his money and was content to remain out of the spotlight.

"He was a recluse, almost," Rhodes said by phone. "Whatever he was doing, he wanted that privacy. Yeah, he was out of the picture for 10 years, but he didn’t want to be in the picture."

Savage was a minor league catcher in the 1970s for St. Louis and Cincinnati before turning in the uniform for tights. His father, Angelo Poffo, was a longtime wrestler, and his brother, "Leaping" Lanny Poffo, was also a 1980s WWF mainstay. Condolences from fans poured in to Lanny Poffo’s Facebook page on Friday.

Funeral arrangements were not immediately available.

Wrestler known as ‘Macho Man’ dies in Fla. wreck

Randy "Macho Man" Savage, a larger-than-life personality from professional wrestling’s 1980s flying-elbow heyday known for his raspy voice, brash style and the young woman named Miss Elizabeth who often accompanied him, died in a car crash Friday in Florida. He was 58.

A Florida Highway Patrol crash report said the former wrestler &mdash whose legal name was Randy Mario Poffo &mdash was driving a Jeep Wrangler when he lost control in Pinellas County around 9:25 a.m. The Jeep veered over the raised concrete median divider, crossed over the eastbound lanes and crashed head-on into a tree.

Police said he may have suffered a "medical event" before the accident, but the report did not elaborate, and it said officials would need to perform an autopsy to know for sure.

The report said a woman in the vehicle, identified as Barbara L. Poffo, 56, suffered minor injuries. A statement from Stamford, Conn.-based World Wrestling Entertainment said the passenger was the wrestler’s current wife. Both were wearing their seatbelts, according to the police report.

"Poffo will be greatly missed by WWE and his fans," the statement said.

Savage was a charismatic wrestler made famous for his "Macho Man" nickname and his "Oooh Yeah!" catchphrase. He was a champion in Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation, and later Ted Turner’s now-defunct World Championship Wrestling.

Poffo was under contract with WWE from 1985 to 1993 and held both the WWE and Intercontinental Championships.

"Our sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends. We wish a speedy recovery to his wife," WWE said.

"Poffo will be greatly missed by WWE and his fans," the statement said.

Savage was a charismatic wrestler made famous for his "Macho Man" nickname and his "Oooh Yeah!" catchphrase. He was a champion in Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation, and later Ted Turner’s now-defunct World Championship Wrestling.

Poffo was under contract with WWE from 1985 to 1993 and held both the WWE and Intercontinental Championships.

"Our sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends. We wish a speedy recovery to his wife," WWE said.

Savage defined the mega-watt personalities of the 1980s World Wrestling Federation (now WWE). He wore sequined robes bejeweled with "Macho Man" on the back, rainbow-colored cowboy hats and colorful bandanas and oversized sunglasses, part of a unique look that helped build the WWF into a mainstream phenomenon.

For most of his career, his valet, Miss Elizabeth, was by his side. The woman, Elizabeth Hulette, was his real-life wife at the time. They later divorced, and Hulette died in 2003 at 42 in what was later ruled a prescription drug overdose.

Savage’s death was not the first to catch the wrestling world by surprise.

Chris Benoit killed his wife and son and then committed suicide in their Georgia home in 2007 Benoit was 40.

Eddie Guerrero was 38 when he died of a heart attack in 2005 after a history of alcohol and drug problems.

Curt "Mr. Perfect" Hennig died of a cocaine overdose in 2003 at 44. That same year, Michael "Road Warrior Hawk" Hegstrand died from a heart attack at 46. He had battled alcohol and drugs, as well as steroids.

In 1999, wrestler Owen Hart, 33, was killed when he fell from an apparatus as he was being lowered into the ring from the ceiling of Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Mo.

The WWF made Savage their champion after a win over Ted DiBiase in the main event at WrestleMania in 1988.

Savage had not appeared for a major wrestling organization since 2004, when he performed for Total Nonstop Action.

He was at times both the most popular and most hated wrestler in entertainment. His flying elbow off the top rope was mimicked by basement and backyard wrestlers everywhere. Savage made good use of his deep, raspy voice as a corporate pitchman as well, for years ordering Slim Jim fans to "Snap into a Slim Jim!"

He’s most known for his legendary rivalries with Hulk Hogan, Ricky Steamboat and Ric Flair. Wrestlers took to Twitter to let fans know Savage won’t be forgotten.

"There’s probably five or six of us, with Andre (the Giant) and Hogan and thankfully myself and Flair, that, when their names pop up, even if you’re not a fan, you know who in the hell these people are," said former wrestler and WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes. "You say, ‘I know this guy. I know Macho Man Randy Savage.’ He was part of that breed. We lost a good one."

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson hailed Savage as one of his childhood inspirations and heroes, while Mick "Cactus Jack" Foley called Savage "one of my favorite performers."

Hogan said he and Savage had just started talking again after 10 years.

"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," Hogan wrote.

While so many personalities who left the WWF for WCW like Hogan, Roddy Piper and Mean Gene Okerlund were welcomed back to the company and even inducted into the Hall of Fame, Savage never returned.

Rhodes said Savage had prudently saved his money and was content to remain out of the spotlight.

"He was a recluse, almost," Rhodes said by phone. "Whatever he was doing, he wanted that privacy. Yeah, he was out of the picture for 10 years, but he didn’t want to be in the picture."

Savage was a minor league catcher in the 1970s for St. Louis and Cincinnati before turning in the uniform for tights. His father, Angelo Poffo, was a longtime wrestler, and his brother, "Leaping" Lanny Poffo, was also a 1980s WWF mainstay. Condolences from fans poured in to Lanny Poffo’s Facebook page on Friday.

Funeral arrangements were not immediately available.
