North Korean leader Kim Jong Ill died last Saturday at age 69, North Korean state TV recently reported.

It’s been rumored that Kim was born on Mount Paekdu, the highest point on the Korean peninsula, under a double rainbow, and possessed many supernatural powers.

According to a recent article from the U.S. News & World Report, North Koreans believe that Kim is a world-renowned fashion icon, the inventor of the hamburger, their country’s national soccer coach, and the very first time he played golf, Kim made 11 holes-in-one, among a host of enormous achievements. Additionally, Many North Koreans also believe that he had the “magical” ability to control the weather based on his mood.

Despite the latest reports from the media stating that North Korea’s supreme leader died from a heart attack, Kim actually died at the hands of wrestling legends, in a vicsious battle with Hulk Hogan and Randy “Macho Man” Savage … I guess his superpowers couldn’t defeat the baddest pro wrestles ever to step into the squared circle.

Just watch the video below.

At the age of 58, former pro wrestling champion Randy “Macho Man” Savage died this morning after suffering a heart attack while driving in Tampa, Florida.

The death of the iconic wrestler, who also made America “snap into a Slim Jim,” was confirmed by his brother, Lanny Poffo, who told TMZ.com that the wrestler lost control of the car and crashed at about 10 am.

According to the same report, the Florida Highway Patrol said that the wrestler’s 2009 Jeep Wranger veered across a concrete median and slammed head on into a tree.

Savage was taken to Largo Medical Center, where he died from injuries sustained in the accident.

His wife was also in the vehicle at the time, but only suffered “minor injuries,” TMZ reported.

Both Savage and his wife were wearing their seatbelts and alcohol was not a factor according to the report.

Starting with the WWF (now WWE) in 1985, Savage, whose real name was Randall Mario Poffo enjoyed one of the longer careers in the business, faking multiple retirements, holding grudges in high profile feuds and even enjoying time as a color commentator when he wasn’t busy in the ring.

Savage, who’s career spans over two decades with the WWE, WCW and TNA wrestling programs, held over 20 championships and was famous for his over-the-top ring attire and his legendary catchphrase, “Ohhhh Yeahhh.”
