Keith Elliot Greenberg, an author who has written a number of books both on wrestling and other subjects, including one of the most underrated wrestilng autobiographies on Billy Graham, has an article today on the last days of Randy Savage.

The article is at

Today is the two year anniversary of the death of Randy Savage.

The article talks in detail about the circumstances of his death, things he had said prior to his death, and gives a very detailed look at his thoughts on the WWE Hall of Fame.  Lanny Poffo, his brother, who said Randy was insistent on the entire family going in, because the Von Erichs went in as a family, said he would not oppose Randy going into the Hall of Fame on his own, but would not support it either.

He also indicated that a perceived slight by Vince McMahon in not inviting Angelo into a 1987 old-timers Battle Royal was something Randy spoke of, even in the last year of his life.
