Profile: "Macho Man" Randy Savage

I kinda already went down this road with the Goldberg profile. What can I say? I love the idea of Jewish-themed wrestlers. Other Jewish-themed things I'd like to see, but will never happen: a Jewish-themed theme park, a Jewish-themed casino, a Jewish-themed sports team.

Well, I can dream can't I?!

In any case, Mr. Savage was suggested by macho men Mark from Atlanta, Bruce from Cambridge, Kendall from Ottawa, and Joe from Scranton.


  1. Wow, I would've never guessed this one! When I first saw the profile I thought maybe Savage was his real last name and was Jewish a la actor Fred Savage of the Wonder Years.

    Not that I'm exactly kvelling over it though.....(Goldberg on the other hand).

  2. Hah! His goyishe dad Angelo Poffo, also a wrestler, went by the ring name of The Masked Miser!
    And his brother Lanny, by the way, also wrestled as the The Genius.

    So can you blame poor Randy for trying to de-Jewify his family legacy just a bit?
