I obviously didn’t know the man. What I did know was the rambunctious, rowdy, radiant wrestler of a generation.

In an age that was dominated by Hulk Hogan, the Macho Man still stood out. He stood out for his incredibly raspy voice, his bandannas, and trademark phrase*, “OOOOOO YEAHHHH”.

Having watched this man nearly all of my young life it feels as if you know him on some small level.

So today is a sad day. Rest in peace Macho Man.
