Here's a synopsis of the concert by "Macho Man" Randy Savage in Treasure
Island, Florida last night...

Syndicated morning show DJ Bubba The Love Sponge talked about the show daily
for the week or so leading up to the event (heard locally on 98 Rock).
Bubba and Savage have a long-running feud, and Bubba encouraged his
listeners to come out in full force to let Randy know exactly what they
thought about him.

When I got to Mr. B's (the restaurant/bar where the event was held), there
was a swarm of people outside of the building, many adorned in bright yellow
shirts. Bubba had promised a shirt giveaway on the radio, and those were
the shirts. On the front read "Hulk Hogan Rules" and on the back "Macho Man
Sucks" with "Proud Member of the Bubba Army" written below. I was too late
for the free shirts.

Mr. B's was refusing to let anyone else inside at that point -- especially
those who were wearing the yellow shirts. However, others who walked right
up were let inside, no problem. Apparently the idea was to prevent hecklers
from making it inside. That idea ended up failing. A slew of off-duty cops
kept the peace out front as best they could.

Brian Adams (Crush) and Macho Man arrived together in a limo. There were a
few cheers... and then a chorus of boos from angry Bubba fans. People were
shouting things like "Nubain" and "crapped your pants at Gold's Gym" at
Randy. I was amazed at the scene.

A cover band was inside playing as a warm-up, and I managed to finally get
through the doors. The venue was tiny, hardly the scene for a serious
concert.

The performance itself was horrendous. Remember the Milli Vanilli incident
in 1990 where their CD started skipping at a concert? That's what happened
three songs into this show. Macho was lip-synching to his music, trying his
best to ignore the overwhelming boos and jeers from the crowd.
Unfortunately for Randy, the CD started skipping. Oops. He kept
lip-synching until Adams gave him the sign to stop. They tried to compose
themselves, but ultimately the rowdy crowd and equipment problems were too
much to handle. Randy slammed down the mic and ended the show abruptly.

Overall, the show was great on the unintentional comedy side of things. As
a serious performer, though, Savage doesn't stand a chance. I felt bad for
Randy up there on stage. Someone has given him some bad advice on this one.
He'd be better off working for MLW here in Florida -- as a wrestler, not a
rap singer.

Who would have thought that a man in his forties with no experience and an incredibly irritating voice would have been a failure as a rapper? Add to that the fact that this rap venture seems to be nothing more than a vehicle to promote his vendetta against Hulk Hogan (which, coincidentally, seems to be of interest to no one other than Randy himself), I'm surprised he even made it this far with this ridiculous project.

Sigh. And to think this is the same man who many have idolized for such bouts as the one with Ricky Steamboat.

Maybe he should get together with Chyna(Doll) or whatever she's calling herself now that she's in some band and call themselves the anti-H's (Hulk Hogan, HHH).

I'm buying... I too have not purchased a PPV since WrestleMania, and I'm looking forward to this show. Hell, Mysterio/Angle and Benoit/RVD was enough for me.
