“Macho Man” Randy Savage was not only a blessed performer in the ring, he was a fantastic hand behind a microphone. A lighting bolt of energy, Macho could set a mic on fire with his interviews, and even the crazier moments in his promos maintained a semblance of truth. (You could have learned a lesson here, Ultimate Warrior.) From using props, to spinning in circles, to denigrating “Mean” Gene Okerlund, one thing you could never say about a Savage promo was that it wasn’t entertaining.
Savage would have turned 62 this weekend. Tragically suffering a heart attack while behind the wheel of his vehicle in 2011, the pro wrestling world lost an icon when “Macho Man” died. Let’s remember the method behind the Madness by looking at 10 of Savage’s craziest, funniest promos when he was on top of the sports-entertainment world.
Nothing Means Nothing
Well said, Macho.
