Jim Ross has a new blog on which you can read in full at www.jrsbarbq.com where he talks about the career and memories of Macho Man Randy Savage.

"Randy Savage is arguably one of the top 2-3 wrestlers that helped establish the WWE as the dominate promotion of its kind in the world. Savage deserves to be mentioned in the same sentence as Andre, Hulk, Piper, etc. 

When I arrived in WWE in 1993, Savage was, unknown to me, on his way out. Randy, Bobby Heenan and I broadcast WM9 from ringside at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas on my first live, TV assignment for WWE.  Broadcasting with ‘Macho Man’ was never easy but it was also never dull. He was as unpredictable wearing headsets as he was in his wrestling tights."
