“Hulkamania is like a single grain of sand in the Sahara desert that is Macho Madness.”

“I’m the tower of power, too sweet to be sour. I’m funky like a monkey. Sky’s the limit and space is the place!”

“There are no tough guys in wrestling.”

“I used to hate old-timers who didn’t praise the younger wrestlers, but you’ve got to pass the torch sometime. If you’re old, that torch gets too heavy for you and you can’t carry it, so it won’t do you any good.”

“Expect the unexpected in the kingdom of madness!”

“Being a wrestler is like walking on the treadmill of life. You get off it and it just keeps going.”

“Best there is… past, present and future! Ohhhhh yeahhhh!”

“You will eat my rear rockets and like it! Ohhhh yeahhh!”

“Let me tell you now a man of my position can afford to look ridiculous at any time.” ******* EDIT: We’ve just found out from a number of Nerdopotamus readers that this one is a misquote. Upon investigation, we discovered it is misquoted all over the internet (including the source listed at the bottom of this article, as well as multiple other sources, and unfortunately, a now deleted Facebook post of ours).

We were unwittingly adding to that. Even worse, according to one of our readers, more of these quotes may be wrong. Apparently, Randy Savage is misquoted all over the world wide web, because these were sourced from a website that deals in quotes. It’s very annoying that we can no longer trust that site and ones like it to deal in correct quotes. From now on, we will exclusively be transcribing every quote we use right from the person who said it.

Anyway, the actual Macho quote is much closer to “I’ll tell you something right now, a man of my position cannot afford to look ridiculous at any time.” We’re still not even sure we got it completely right, though. We were using a sound board as our source. He may say “and I’ll tell you something” to start it off. We can’t tell for sure, thanks to Macho’s extremely unique delivery.
