The year’s wrapping up, and in the world of professional wrestling, journalists, fans, bloggers, etc., will be declaring their wrestlers and matches of the year. However, here at Cheap Pop Culture, I’d rather give you a breakdown of all the times pro wrestling reared its red-headed step child head in the world of pop culture. So enjoy the second annual of The Year of Wrestling in Pop Culture.
It’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. Whether he’s still being remembered by Tumblrs showcasing him beating pop culture’s greatest bad asses, or in video games which contain a Macho Man-esque alternate outfit, or a modified dragon, it’s time we celebrate Randy Savage’s greatest contributions to pop culture. Mandatory “Oh yeah!” here.
