Hey guys, hope all is well. I'm taking the dubious honor of writing a blog sharing great memories of the late & great Macho Man Randy Savage. I never thought he would leave us so soon and its funny because I was just thinking about him in deep thought the other day.
We the Internet Wrestling Community always respected Savage the most because he truly knew when to call it quits. I was always proud that a man that accomplished all he did in the business, had a small enough ego and large sense of pride to truly step away from the business and let the new guys shine. I only wish we could've seen him one last time as maybe a guest host or in the hall of fame.
We can debate all day about the 80s but I always thought Savage was greater than Hulk Hogan in every aspect. Sort of how many people feel Magic Johnson was greater than Michael Jordan. Hogan received more attention but as far as in-ring ability and the ability to put on a great match, Savage was the better man.
Savage battled his share of demons including his drama with Lex Luger & Miss Elizabeth. I'm pretty sure Luger will address this situation because its the right thing to do and Luger is a born-again Christian so I'm sure he will say something on his behalf.
I'm also pretty sure that they will mention this on TNA, Friday Night Smackdown, Over the Limit and the Following Raw as well. I know management from both companies begged him to return in some capactiy and eventhough he never did, I'm sure no grudges are being held.
Savage was the greatest star of the 80s and possibly the most charasmatic star ever. I appreciate Savage because I'm only 20 so I wasn't alive for most of his great matches but I have to credit WWE Classic On-Demand as Savage has to be the main star they showcase from the 80s. I learned so much about this great man and we as the fans should be honored to have watched him perform.
Guys, lets not mourn his death but instead remember him for all the great moments he's given the wrestling fans. I ask that you all leave comments sharing your favorite Randy Savage moments & matches and great memories.
Thank you and guys please take care and hug your love ones because you never know if tomorrow will be too late. Take Care & Spike Your Hair...OHHHHHHHH YEAAAAAAA R.I.P. Macho Man
