AWWW :-/

Macho Man was by far my favourite of that 1980s generation, and he was at his best when he was all worked up and insane.
With him I always wanted more because he was colourful looking, had an awesome finisher (especially for the time), and would likely say any old random crap on the mic, which I loved.
Hulk Hogan in comparison came off as a preachy and repetitive, and he couldn't do 10% of what Macho could.

When I think of old-school wrestling and/or wrestling legends, Macho Man is one of the first people that come to mind. RIP Macho Man :,-( and thank you for all you did for the business and for all the wonderful entertainment we (the fans) got out of watching you.

Mach was definitely a childhood favorite of mine and one of the best performers of his generation, at least. He was every bit as consistent a worker as Shawn Michaels was for his generation. I think back to Wrestlemania 3 and Steamboat/Savage stealing the show that night, becoming the company's top dog a year later at Wrestlemania 4 (of course, the Superpowers angle with Hogan overshadowed that for the coming year), and great matches involving Ultimate Warrior and Ric Flair in WM VII and VIII respectively. I think while Mach was past his physical peak in WCW, he was still one of the better in-ring performers around with the way he was able to tell a story in his matches. Plus, I always liked the way he delivered his promos; he and Jake the Snake Roberts were the best in their heyday.

He'll definitely be missed.

By the way, not sure how many here watch TNA wrestling, but Jay Lethal ran a "Black Machismo" gimmick for awhile in TNA with Macho Man's full blessing. Here's an interview with him in full gimmick mode:

If you want to see his ring entrances and things, skip to 2:17.

25% of performers from Wrestlemania 7 are dead

14 of the 51 are dead 20 years later. Nobody who played in the Superbowl that year have died.
