ABC News published their pop culture signs of the apocalypse prior to the death of “Macho Man” Randy Savage, so we won’t fault them for not including it. But we can’t help but wonder, given the celebrity death rule of three, if Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior are next, and if that means we’re all good and truly screwed.
Kidding aside, we are saddened to hear that the Macho Man is gone. He was one of our favorites back in the day, and we were excited to play him in the new WWE All Stars video game after watching him pitch the game in a video recently (included above). He never convinced us to snap into a Slim Jim, but he did convince us that anything was possible (even if it was fixed) when he, against all odds, won the WWF Championship at the end of Wrestlemania 4, and for that, we are eternally grateful.
Rest in peace, Macho Man, wherever you are.
