New Customs: Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage May 23, 2011Posted by skribbel24 in Customs.
Hulk Hogan had mainstream popularity in the mid 1980s through the early 1990s as the all-American character Hulk Hogan in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF—now the WWE), and was notable in the mid-to-late 1990s as “Hollywood” Hogan, the villainous nWo leader, in World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Following WCW’s fold, he made a brief return to WWE in the early 2000s, revising his heroic character by combining elements of his two most famous personas. Hogan was later inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.
Randy Savage, whose real name was Randy Poffo, would strut into the ring to his theme song “Pomp and Circumstance,” muscles gleaming and neon spandex shining, growling his signature expression, “Oooh, yeah!” before diving at his opponents, elbows first.
Randy Savage, who with his trademark sunglasses, bandannas and raspy voice was one of the most recognizable professional wrestlers of the 1980s and ’90s as the character Macho Man, died on Friday in a one-car accident in Pinellas County, Fla. He was 58.
