Backyard Funeral For ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage Was Poignant, Action Figure-ey

Brilliant. Certifiably brilliant. Well done, Hugging Harold Reynolds. You are hereby awarded an honorary Intercontinental Championship belt.

They all managed to make it: Hulk Hogan, King Kong Bundy, Hillbilly Jim, George “The Animal” Steele, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Mr. Fuji, Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, Junkyard Dog (I think),   and many, many others I can’t quite make out (although I’m guessing one is Savage’s brother, Lanny Poffo, possibly Brutus Beefcake, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat and is that Elvis in the back there?) were on hand for an impromptu memorial honoring the late great “Macho Man” Randy Savage. Well, their acrylonitrile butadiene styrene-based counterparts made it, but really, when setting up a backyard funeral on the fly, what can you expect?

Rest in peace, Macho Man. Your action figure buddies will always have your back…

Wait. What’s this? Is that…is that?

I can’t believe what I just witnessed! Disgusting! If “Mean Gene” Okerlund were on hand, I bet he would have let out an exclamatory, “OOH OH MY!!” Because, well, that’s what Mean Gene does. In fact, I believe he trademarked that phrase.
