Dwayne “The Rock’ Johnson took to his Twitter page today to pay his respect to his “childhood inspiration” Macho Man Randy Savage.
“RIP Randy “Macho Man” Savage – you were one of my childhood inspirations and heros. Strength, love and prayers to the Savage/Poffo family.”
Also chiming in on Twitter was WWE star Kevin Nash who posted:
“I lost a close friend today. If anybody in heaven is wondering who the cat in the ugly cowboy hat is it’s Randy. Love you Bro. Never another.”
While Mick Foley (Mankind) told TMZ:
“Though I only met Randy Savage a handful of times, he was one of my all-time favorite performers … I loved his style, in the ring and on the microphone.”
As a child I use to countdown the days until Macho Man, The Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan would take to the ring, my three all-time favorites, while I haven’t watched the WWE in years it’s still a sad day for one of my childhood heroes.
