I'm definitely going to have to throw that onto my TV tonight.

RIP Macho.

Wow, I'm stunned. This is a shock really. I got into Wrestling just as Savage's prime was winding down, but going back and watching the older stuff, Macho truly was one the greats.

This is one of the few tragic deaths where his career will not be overrated becuase he died, he truly was one of the greats.

I now have an urge to go back and watch the Macho Man three disc set.

RIP Macho Man.



Loosie.

My favorite ever. Ever. No one is even close. I was still hoping for a comeback, even in a non-wrestling role.

Total bummer to hear the news. Had been wondering what rumor CM Punk was referring to this morning and then I started getting text messages from peeps I know who haven't watched wrestling in over a decade.

Caught WMIII on CCTV up at the Long Beach Convention Center and seeing Savage/Steamboat on a movie screen was pretty freaking amazing. One of my favorite matches of all time.

I can only hope that now Vince can put his issues with Savage aside and put him in the Hall of Fame like the guy deserves.

Rest in Peace.

I only started watching wrestling in February of 1997, and one of my earliest memories of wrestling was watching Diamond Dallas Page take a stand against The Outsiders.

Then Randy Savage came in behind him and clocked him in the back of the head with a can of spray paint.

Savage was a great heel. He was the first wrestler to get serious heel heat from me. His feud with DDP really got me into it. And as I watched him continue in WCW (and went back and watched previous matches of his), I became a fan. I always thought it was bullshit the way he was treated like he was second-rate compared to Hulk Hogan.

I ordered the DVD set just now, along with Bret Hart's.

I just ordered it too. It's $11.99 on Amazon at the moment.

This just flat-out sucks. Rest in Peace, Randy. There will never be another like you.

Totally agree. I'm selfishly upset because I never really got to hear him reflect on his career out of kayfabe and I was really hoping to do so. I guess it just allows me to cherish the character more knowing I never really got to see him out of it.

RIP, Macho. One of the brightest stars in wrestling during the time period I enjoyed it the most.

Those of us who grew up on the east coast of Canada were lucky enough to see Savage in Atlantic Grand Prix Wrestling, before his WWF days.

There isn't much in wrestling that tops Randy Savage when he goes from crazy to mentally insane crazy.

The man knew how to put on a show.

A co-worker told me this 15 minutes ago and I was in total shock. I was absolutely floored. Macho Man was my favorite of all time. I even dressed up as him for Halloween a couple of years. Black and white zebre striped spandex and cowboy hat. (I still have the hat.) Every bar I went into knew exactly who I was. Macho was the shit. Now I have to make sure to watch the opening of Smackdown to see if they have a tribute video ready to go tonight. Oh, and I checked out J.O.'s link, and this vid of Macho about the new WWE game fucking rules.


It is what mach was all about, but I can see he threw in a bit of Dusty Rhodes (if you will.......) and Flair, too! (OF ALL TIME! OF ALL TIME!! OF ALL TIME!!!) Pomp and circumstance for eveyrone, Mr. Poffo. Rest in peace.

-edit - I just remembered this site (http://wheresrandysavage.tumblr.com/) and this is their #1 pic. Oooo yeah......

Savage was probably my second favorite wrestler of all time, and his WrestleMania match with the Ultimate Warrior is my favorite match of all time. I don't think I ever saw him do anything that I didn't love. This is a really sad way for him to go.

So many thoughts...

Randy was one of those guys that became a main stream pop culture icon. I'd say he's there with Hogan and Andre as guys that people that know nothing about wrestling recognize.

I can remember a match that Savage had with Bad News Brown on one of the old Colleseum home videos that blew me away as a kid. They brought a long handle push broom and a table into it long before ECW was breaking tables every show.

It's cliche to say that there will never be anyone like him again.

But no seriously, there will NEVER be anyone like him again.

My favorite wrestling match/scene of all time just got that much sadder to watch now that 3/4 of the participants are dead: Wrestlemania 7 career-ending match with the Ultimate Warrior and the breakup with Sensational Sherri/ reunion with Miss Elizabeth. Simply put, The Macho Man was one of the best and most entertaining in the ring and on the mic. RIP.

Very sad to hear. He was one of my all-time favorites. He did everything in Wrestling. He was one of the best wrestlers in the world, and was a a huge draw. He was a household name and influenced so many wrestlers. He was a huge part of the wrestling boom in the 80’s and 90’s. I recall my dad taking me to see him wrestling at MSG against The Honkey Tonk Man. I also saw WrestleMania 5 on Closed curcuit TV when he won the title for the first time. Loved his matches and feud with Flair, Steamboat, Warrior and Hogan. The fact that he could carry a slug like the Warrior to a four star match shows his greatness. Loved his promos too. He will be missed.
