“Macho Man” Randy Savage entertained millions of fans for decades, and he would have turned 68-years-old today. Savage sadly passed away on May 20th, 2011, and the pro wrestling world still remembers him.
The Iron Sheik posted one of his trademark all-caps tweets to honor Savage. This tribute contained no nasty remarks as Sheik’s recent posts about Hulk Hogan, a man he has yet to forgive. Instead, The Iron Sheik was genuine as he wrote:
TODAY WOULD BE BIRTHDAY OF THE RANDY SAVAGE. I THINK ABOUT YOU MACHO MAN BUBBA AND IT BREAK MY HEART. YOU WERE A BEAUTIFUL PERFORMER AND THE 2 SPORT ATHLETE. WHEN YOU MAKE THE ELBOW FROM THE TOP ROPE THE FANS LOVE IT. I MISS YOU. #RIPMACHOMAN
The Iron Sheik’s opinion of Randy Savage is not unique. Many feel as though he was one of the greatest to step into the squared circle. He was a gifted entertainer who influenced many, and some of those Superstars are lighting up RAW and SmackDown every week, along with every other pro wrestling company on earth.
RIP Randy Savage, and happy birthday.
