Twitter Reacts to the Passing of “Macho Man” Randy Savage


One of the men responsible for bringing the WWF to the forefront of sports and entertainment was none other than the unforgettable “Macho Man” Randy Savage. Growing up as a youngster who loved the WWF for it’s over the top theatrics and relentless smack talk, myself and the kids in my neighborhood placed the Macho Man on somewhat of a pedestal. A God among men. I wasn’t alone to say the least.

Lets take a gander at just some of the love that was shown via Twitter today from the elite athletes and entertainers of the Combat Sports world.
