Posted in News by Jack at 01:45, May 22 2010

TAMPA, Fla. (May 21, 2010) ? Randy Poffo (better known by his ring name, ?Macho Man? Randy Savage), 57, married longtime girlfriend Lynn Payne, 55, on May 10 in Sarasota, Fla. The couple wed during an intimate sunset ceremony on Lido Beach, with only their closest family in attendance.

Poffo and Payne, who is originally from South Pittsburg, Tenn., met in Sarasota in 1974. Poffo was playing minor league baseball and Payne was attending school at the Ringling School of Art and Design. They dated for two years before parting ways.

After a nearly three-decade separation, the couple reunited in 2001.

?Thirty-six years ago, Lynn and I met on Lido Beach,? said Poffo. ?I feel so fortunate that I had a second chance to marry my first love, here where it all began.?

Savage held 20 championships during his professional wrestling career and is a seventime world heavyweight champion: a two-time WWF Champion, four-time WCW World
Heavyweight Champion, and one-time USWA Unified World Heavyweight Champion.

Attached is a proof sheet of available photographs taken during and following the ceremony. Those interested in obtaining photos should contact Tim Boyles Photography
