The 10 Greatest Macho Man Randy Savage Memories

A legend of professional wrestling, Macho Man Randy Savage (born Randall Mario Poffo) was best known for his raspy voice, his over-the-top fashion sense and trademark catchphrase, "Ooooooooh Yeahhhhhhhh." Savage died on May 20, 2011, after suffering from a heart attack while driving in Tampa, Florida. He was 58 years old. His wife, also in the car at the time of the incident, suffered only minor injuries. According to authorities, alcohol was not a factor in the accident. This list includes some of Randy Savage's best and most epic moments in both the worlds of pop culture and sports entertainment. He will be missed.

What are Macho Man Randy Savage's greatest memories? Take a look here and see for yourself.

  1. 6

    Macho Man vs. Hulk Hogan

    At Wrestlemania V in 1989, Savage lost the WWF title to Hulk Hogan after holding it for just over a year, becoming the 6th longest-reigning WWF Champion ever. (The match was held in Atlantic City's Trump Plaza!) Hogan and Savage had previously been partners in the tag team duo, The Mega Powers, and this match continued an ongoing feud between the two wrestlers.

  2. 7

    The Arsenio Hall Show

    An example of the increasingly mainstream fan following for pro wrestling, Macho Man was invited to appear on "The Arsenio Hall Show" in 1989 (alongside fellow guest Morgan Fairchild!) Among the topics explored are the forthcoming "Wrestlemania V" and the differences between Macho Madness and Hulkamania.

  3. 8

    Be a Man

    In 2003 (I know, right!), the Macho Man finally got around to releasing his own vanity rap album, "Be a Man!" (Hey, he was a busy guy). The title track is a diss against, naturally, Savage's adversary Hulk Hogan, calling him a coward who's afraid to face Savage in the ring, and also mocking the Hulkster's movie career. (Savage unfavorably compares his guest appearance in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" to Hulk's direct-to-video output, for example.)

    Other tracks include "Macho Thang," "Feel the Madness" and a track titled "Remember Me" that was maybe a bit TOO on the nose.

  4. 9

    Wrestlemania III Promo

    Savage's fight against Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat at Wrestlemania III is one of his most infamous and storied, but it's this promo that aired before the match that will always stay with us. He promises to not only embarrass The Dragon (and in front of the largest crowd ever aseembled!), but to essentially drive him out of the sport of wrestling entirely. The face-off was eventually named "Match of the Year" for 1987.

  5. 10

    Attacked at Wedding Reception

    At a televised reception for the newly-married Savage and Miss Elizabeth (Savage's real-life wife, Elizabeth Hulette), rival Jake "The Snake" Roberts hid one of his signature live cobras in with the happy couple's gifts. Roberts' new ally, The Undertaker, used this as an opportunity to attack Savage, knocking him out with an urn. Like you do.
