Growing up there were two guys who immediately attracted my eyeballs when it came to pro wrestling, Bret "The Hitman" Hart and Randy "Macho Man" Savage. Savage was my first guy dating back to my first years as a pro wrestling fan. The guy had it all, the crazy look, the flashy outfits, the incredible promos that hooked you, and of course, the athleticism inside of the ring.
To this day, Savage is still, at least in my eyes, one of the greatest all-around wrestlers to EVER grace a ring. I know we all have our opinions, but again, to me, Savage was special. He was the definition of a larger-than-life character.
In fact, I am such a big fan of Savage that I uttered the words, "ooooooh yeah" with a finger twirl at my wedding. After all, the wedding of Savage to Miss Elizabeth at Summerslam '92 was by far the coolest thing ever! And partly, because there is something slightly wrong with me in having to incorporate pro wrestling into a life changing moment like marriage. Such is life. I'm nuts.
Now if I recited some of those infamous Macho Man promo quotes into my vows, I would have to agree I may need mental help:
"We're in space! And Space is the place!"
"The madness is runnin' wild!"
"Oooooh yeeeah! I want everybody to freak out! Freak out! The Macho Man is right here, and I'm gonna take it to the limit! Yeah!"
"Best there is... past, present and future! Ohhhhh yeahhhh!"
""I'm too hot to handle and too cold to hold!"
And my all-time favorite...
"The tower of power, too sweet to be sour, ohhhh yeahh!"
Nonetheless, Savage is awesome, and now is the 6th induction into the DP Page of Fame. Ohhh yeeeeah, dig it!
