Macho Moments in Pop Culture

IMG_6032It’s been five years since the wrestling world lost the “Macho Man” Randy Savage. But while today most wrestling sites will celebrate his in-ring career highlights, let’s not forget that the world of pop culture also lost the Macho Man.

Dexter“Dial M for Monkey: Rasslor”
Season 1, Episode 2
5/5/1996

One of the WWE’s most popular wrestlers right now, Daniel Bryan, is the personification of what it means to be a true underdog. And if we’ve learned anything from wrestling and every sports movie ever made, ever, is that people like a good underdog story.
