We now resume our normal service with one of the G.O.A.T’s yet strangely often feels quite underappreciated due to living in the shadow of Hogan (DESPITE HULKAMANIA BEING A TINY GRAIN OF SAND IN THE SAHARA DESERT THAT IS MACHO MADNESS) and his tragic death… OOOOOH YEEEAHHH LET ME YA SOMETHING MENE GENE, WITH MISS ELIZABETH IN HIS CORNER HE’LL BE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION FOR 10,000 YEARS… HE’S TOO HOT TO HANDLE, TOO COLD TO HOLD, HE’S THE TOWER OF POWER, TOO SWEET TO BE SOUR, I’M FUNKY LIKE A MONKEY, SKY’S THE LIMIT AND SPACE IS THE PLACE. OOOH YEAH HE’S ALSO BONESAW IT’S…

Macho Man Randy Savage!

Based on how his actual career panned out, he’s a 4, but he’s such a legendary icon and was constantly held back by Hogan despite being clearly more talented so it’s a 5

A true all-timer - alongside Flair probably the greatest all rounder of his generation in terms of the charisma/talking/wrestling combo. Great and timeless look, one of the best names, able to do comedy, serious, heel or face as necessary. A crying shame his legacy is tained by how awful he was to Elizabeth away from the TV cameras and also that he fell out with McMahon, because he would have been great on a legend’s contract.

ah yeah, the Elizabeth stuff, momentarily forgot about that… maybe he is a 4

was never entirely sure if he was like that because of the Gak or he had ADHD or a bit of both

more promos should involve prop work imo. love all the spinning around, facing away from the camera, so unique

His album ‘Be A Man’ is very very enjoyable.

5/5 for his early work on the way to being WWF champ alone. He really cared about how the match would unfold, down to the smallest detail. He was entertaining on the mic in a time when very few were and boy could he leap with that flying elbow, He was hated as a heel and loved as a face - takes a great wrestler to pull that off.

I’m almost tempted to dock a point for most of Summerslam 1991 onwards, but I understand that’s down to Vince McMahon not really giving him the opportunity to wrestle as much as he did.

He also managed something unique in making an Ultimate Warrior match not only look good, but something akin to a classic. Practically the only good part of Wrestlemania VII and totally down to him.

oh my god is that where he spends half of it rapping about how much he hates Hogan?

Oh yes.
And there’s also a really lovely heartfelt ode to Mr Perfect.
