Most of you know I’m a big wrestling fan. As a wrestling fan, I am still in shock over the loss of a pioneer of the business. Had Randy Savage never been a wrestler, the whole landscape would be different today. He inspired so many current superstars to train to be wrestlers. He dropped the best elbow in the business. He had the best catch phrases. People who didn’t like wrestling knew who said ‘Oooh Yeaaahhhh’. Randy Savage will be missed but his legacy will never fade.
I found this poem that a wrestler wrote in tribute to the Macho Man:
You were a tower of power that was too sweet to be sour,
You were funky like a monkey every minute of every hour.
For you, space was the place and time distortion had to be,
And your fans here on earth wanted the madness for eternity.
You met every challenge with fists clinched and face to face,
You even fought and defeats dragons and snakes.
Flying off the ropes with an elbow drop,
There was no way you could ever be stopped.
Identifiable by your voice alone,
Even being Dubbed the macho king while you sat on your throne.
We hung on your words with interviews memorable and classic,
And we knew it was serious when you took off your glasses.
I promise not to lose you in the sands of time,
For you will always be that all time hero of mine.
