* BadassDecay: His matches in 1999 WCW weren't very good, as age and injuries started to take their inevitable toll.
** Savage v. [[Wrestling/BrutusBeefcake "Ed Brutus Booty Furface Barber Disciple Butcher Clipmaster Dizzy Golden Boulder Bruddah Bruti Zodiac Beefcake-Leslie]]" on an April 29th episode of ''Thunder''. Not even ''Nitro'' -- the B-Show. Post-match, Randy and his (three!) valets celebrated in the ring, overlooking the fact that it took interference from three bimbos to beat ''Ed Leslie'' of all people.
* CrazyAwesome: During his feud with [[JakeRoberts Jake "The Snake" Roberts]], Savage actually let himself get bit by a (devenomized) snake.
** Which then turned into a bit of NightmareFuel as the snake would not let go of Savage's arm despite Jake trying to get the snake off of him.
** He reportedly joked that [[TooSpicyForYogSothoth the snake got poisoned from biting him.]]
** His promos were this. He might not have made much sense, but every promo he made had an intensity that few could match.
* CriticalResearchFailure: Not Savage himself, but Slim Jim's. One of the Slim Jim's commercials showed him in high school in 1974. Savage made his professional debut in 1973, and would have been, at the most, ''22'' years old in 1974.
* DorkAge:
** The fact that he actually used the Music/VillagePeople's "Macho Man" as entrance music earlier in his career.
** His stint as the "Macho King," complete with a crown and Sensational Queen Sherri by his side, is considered by many to be the low point in his WWE run. The promos were fun; the matches [[GimmickMatches were not.]]
** The 1999 Team Madness Savage as mentioned above is his WCW Dork Age.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The ending of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFIa9lTrJng this video]], which was released months ago as a spoof.
** The heartwarming courtship/marriage angle between Savage and Elizabeth, fondly remembered by many wrestling fans, was happening as their real life marriage was crumbling.
* HarsherInHindsight: Savage's death happens on the same day the original Slim Jim factory closed down.
** By the end of his WWF run Savage's onscreen persona became a frustrated Lion In Winter who was unhappy about being stuck in the broadcasting booth and wanted to keep wrestling. It wasn't an act and a fed up Savage ended up quitting over it.
* HilariousInHindsight: The Randy Poffo baseball card, which reads on the back: "Has improved his swing by dropping his elbow." Can be viewed [[http://i.imgur.com/3LBuvmp.jpg here.]]
** The snake that bit Savage in his feud with Jake Roberts ended up dying shortly after biting Savage. Well, waay later, this phrase got hilarious because actually, Savage did this first: [[Website/ChuckNorrisFacts "Chuck Norris was once bitten by a poisonous snake. After three days of excrutiating pain, the cobra died."]]
* TheLancer: Although they were never part of a traditional FiveManBand, Savage fit the role of Lancer to Hulk Hogan's [[TheHero Hero]] pretty well
* MemeticMutation: The ''[[http://wheresrandysavage.tumblr.com/ Where's Randy Savage?]]'' blog, which features images where the Macho Man's photoshopped into various scenes, such as ''[[Film/BillAndTed Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure]]'', ''Franchise/{{Predator}}'' and ''Franchise/StarWars'' - as well as various famous real life photographs.
** Became something of an AscendedMeme when Randy Savage was actually spotted sitting in the crowd behind home base at a Mets game.
*** "''[[Film/SpiderMan1 BOOOONESAAAAW IS READYYYY!!]]''"
** When there was the May 21, 2011 doomsday hoax, Randy Savage's death was allegedly responsible for "averting" the apocalypse. Hence, "Macho Man: he died for your sins!"
* MemeticBadass: Due to the timing of his death, Savage is cited as having [[http://www.allfacebook.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/rapture-savage.jpg prevented the Rapture via Diving Elbow Drop on Jesus.]]
* MemeticMolester: There was a wrestling urban legend which claimed that Savage was released from the WWF in 1994 because he raped a then-17-year-old [[Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon Stephanie [=McMahon=]]].
-->'''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzFC0RcefS8 Randy Savage]]''': ...and, uh, Wrestling/TripleH, you already know that I'm gonna bitch-slap you, and take your girl, Stephanie [=McMahon=]!
* OlderThanTheyThink: Wrestling/PamperoFirpo used a drawn-out [[BigYes "OOOOH YEAHHH!"]] as his CatchPhrase long before Savage started using it. Although their versions are slightly different,as Firpo emphasized the "OOOOH" more whereas Savage emphasized the "YEAHHH" more.
** Savage's brother Lanny Poffo got the idea from an old Pampero Firpo promo and suggested Randy use it.
* SoBadItsGood: His rap CD. [[VindicatedByHistory It's been looked upon more favorably]] [[DeadArtistsAreBetter now that he's passed on.]]
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: He's already on a drug. [[Creator/CharlieSheen It's called Macho Man.]]
** Heel Randy, Queen Sherri, and Zeus ''in the same room.'' Macho always used to say Sherri had "the ingredient" of the "Cauldron of the Madness", which may have been an eight ball of cocaine.
