Macho Man Randy Savage Tribute



Snap into this tribute

Growing up in the 1980's when EVERYBODY was a Hulkamanic. I was Macho Madness all the way from the first time I saw him at Wrestlemania 3 when he stole the show making his match against Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat better than the Main Event match between Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant. From that point on, I wanted to be the Macho Man... There is something about his personality, Voice, Style, a beautiful woman accompanying him, how he wrestles, even down to his sun glasses. And that's him as a good guy. When he turned heel against Hulk Hogan & Miss Elizabeth, I even loved his bad boy persona even more. He knew how to cheat and make the fans hate him, and was the perfect match for Sensational Sherri as the duo were both insane in wrestling. Everybody credits Hulk Hogan for launching the WWE to what it is today and I stand by the fact that Macho Man and all he has done for wrestling is the reason the WWE is as big as it is today... I have always said Macho is bigger than the sport itself. I remember a Broadcast of WWF Monday Night Raw when Vince McMahon said farewell to Macho for years of entertainment and how young I was, I was depressed we would never see macho man... that is until WCW hired him and not many people know but I was a WWF fan and never gave WCW a chance until Savage switched brands which means I had to also become a WCW fan and he was the reason why I started watching WCW. Once he made his debut in WCW, he reunited with his former tag partner and arch rival Hulk Hogan and later brought back Miss Elizabeth as there manager and that was when I really got hooked as I remember their storyline from the 1980s in WWF years prior.. It was a great experience to see there run at each other again in the 1990’s… When I learned about his death, I was sad, because he was a big part of my childhood and I have nothing but many memories of him in WWE & WCW… him with Miss Elizabeth and Sensational Sherri.. and even his last run as the leader of team madness… He has inspired more wrestlers we see today such as CM Punk and Chris Jericol, he catch phrase snap into it is more known in the world then any other catch phrase in TV History… he has left a mark in wrestling and TV that his legacy will forever live on!
