The Bizarre Rap Career Of Macho Man Randy Savage

Everyone knows who “Macho Man” Randy Savage is, right? Even if you aren’t a fan of pro wrestling, those damn Slim Jim commercials still resonate within our souls today. “Snap into a Slim Jim, YEEEEAAAAH!” made that crappy processed meat treat sound somewhat desirable thanks to the oddity known as Randy Savage. He was as captivating as he was peculiar. An aberration to the norm, everything about him demanded your attention.

As for fans who grew up watching pro wrestling, Savage was the bad guy you loved to hate and the good guy you adored. The funny thing about Savage is that whether he was a face or a heel, he was always the same exact character. Whether he was in or out of the ring, he was the same guy. You never caught Savage breaking character because Savage probably never believed he was a character.

It is not known if, at some point in his life, Randy Mario Poffo became Randy Savage or if the “Savage” was simply a personality trait that was suppressed through his younger years and found comfort in the eccentricities of professional wrestling.

Before the days of social media and the ever seeing eye of the internet, there was a lingering feeling that who Savage was when he was wrestling was the exact same person he was when he wasn’t. He always appeared to take everything seriously. Which is why when he decided to release a rap album, it felt like we weren’t supposed to laugh out loud in fear that he would hear us and drop that signature elbow drop on our chest cavity.

It’s not like wrestlers haven’t found themselves in the studio before. But they treated making music much like they did their in-ring persona. You didn’t take Vince McMahon’s “Stand Back” seriously, nor did you ever think that Koko B Ware was really considering a music career when he sang lead on “Piledriver.” When wrestlers did make music, it was to serve the sole purpose of becoming their entrance theme and/or to exist in a fictional wrestling universe where everyone is hip to the game (Hulk Hogan made an album too, but that deserves it’s own column).

        I don’t mind ebonics but your word choice is akward. Onna ? Really dude ? Like you are trying to come of as a black hood man/woman. I’m not a mutt, well we all are equally mutty, mutt just means different countries mixed, ethinicites. If you look at it a country like let’s say France, it became France when well it became France lol, basically I bet they probably were different tribes mixed in, noone is 100 % 1 thing. But I’m not a mutt in the modern sense, I’m just Herzegovinian. Immigrant………. not YET. What about your Mexican brothers, they can immigrate but I can’t. dude white americans came from Europe. Think about it. They pimp daddied the country. With the great help of black people. Aka slavery. But whites did work too they created the power, Africa is not rich like the USA, think about it. In 2014 slavery got no place, I’m just putting it in perspective. If you get offended then you wanna be lied to. I mean slavery makes ALL white people guilty, but african tribes countries can freely kill each other and it’s considered GOOD. ? Also everyone goes after each other, asians whites vs whites (all the time), longest war in history was France vs Britain. 1860 is different form 2014. You’re ancestors all killed TOO !

    That’s it? The article had nothing to say about Macho Man’s rap career.

    You know who’s album was surprisingly decent? John Cena’s. Dude could actually rap.
