Macho Man has to be the most beloved wrestler of all time. Even fans who stopped watching wrestling in the late 90s still get excited about anything Randy Savage related.
One fan in Columbus, Ohio is such a massive Savage mark, he’s trying to get a statue erected in honor of the Macho Man. He started a petition on Change.org asking the mayor to consider a monument to Macho Madness.
Dear Mayor Ginther,
Randy Mario Poffo, Also known as Macho Man Randy Savage is known the world over as one of the world’s best Professional Wrestlers of all time. During Savage’s 32 Year Pro Wrestling Career, he held over 20 championships, including the WWF and WCW World Heavy Weight title and is a WWE Hall of Famer. Randy Savage also wrestled in what most considered the best wrestling match of all time in front of 93,000 fans at Wrestlemania 3.
What most do not know is that Randy Savage was born in Columbus, Ohio. Columbus should honor it’s native son by placing a statue of downtown Columbus.
Macho Man Randy Savage was an incredible athlete, performer, and cultural icon. Columbus should do the Poffo family proud by building a statue in his honor.
All valid points, brother. Here’s my question — when it gets all 5,000 signatures, and it will, and the statue goes into planning, what pose does the Macho Man get?
The point to the sky from the top rope?
The arms outstretch twirl?
The elbow off the top?
So tough to choose.
