Macho Man Randy Savage to spend eternity with his dog Hercules

As I am sure you have all heard by now, “Macho Man” Randy Savage tragically passed away in a car accident when he suffered a heart attack that caused him to lose control of the vehicle.

Perhaps you were not a fan of Macho Man because you do not like wrestling or you did not approve of him promoting the well-known meat product, Slim Jim. If that is the case then you will at least find it touching that his ashes will be spread under his favorite tree with the ashes of his deceased dog, Hercules. So even though Macho Man was mixed up in the beef stick trade, he at least had a soft spot for some animals such as dogs.

The service will be small and private, with no public memorial.

Although I personally was not a fan of wrestling, I must admit that back in my omnivore days I did snap into a few Slim Jims from time to time. But this is not what I will remember Macho Man for. I will remember him for what I consider to be his greatest gift to this Earth, his hip hop album entitled “Be a Man." I have listened to this masterpiece over that last couple of days and this is how I will remember him.

If you haven't heard anything off of it then enjoy this link!

Rest in peace “Macho Man” Randy Savage, rest in peace.
