American Icons: Randy Savage

Those who are old enough will remember "Macho Man" Randy Savage as part of the wrestling triumvirate of the eighties along with Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior. He also introduced most of us to the musical piece "Pomp and Circumstance" (a.k.a. the "Trio" section of March No. 1 in D). You will never know the feeling of being a genuine eighties kid until you've marched at your grade school graduation thinking you were Macho Man walking out to the ring.

And so before we say goodbye to Macho Man as he joins Andre the Giant in that huge Royal Rumble in the sky, here's a pic of him during Wrestlemania V, where he lost the WWF title to the Hulkster:

I remember seeing Wrestlemania as a kid in Detroit. Those guys were bigger than life--and fun too!

Do you remember which Wrestlemania it was?
