Macho Man Randy Savage's incredible answer to the question 'Do You Cry?' goes viral

Macho Man Randy Savage’s answer to Arsenio Hall’s question “Do you cry?” has gone viral as fans praise his incredible words.

Randall Mario Poffo, better known by his ring name “Macho Man” Randy Savage, is one of the most iconic and beloved wrestlers ever to grace the WWF and WCW.

Savage was instantly recognizable for his flamboyant ring attire and larger than life personality, embodied in his signature catchphrase, “Oooh yeah!”

“Macho Man” personified a tough-guy machismo, which made him one of the most watchable and entertaining athletes in the history of wrestling.

Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth get together in Charlotte, North Carolina circa 1998.

Macho Man Randy Savage had the best answer to the question ‘Do you cry?’

Of course, away from that hard exterior and bravado, it’s easy to forget there’s a human underneath. For all his muscles and strength, Savage, like every other human being, experienced mental health issues and setbacks in life.

Old-school wrestlers opening up about their mental health isn’t something you see every day, which is why the ‘cry’ video resonated with so many people.

In the clip, Macho Man Randy Savage is asked by Arsenio Hall whether he’s ever cried. Savage’s response to the question is pretty perfect, as he delicately answers the question while still managing to inject his unique in-ring persona.

“It’s ok for macho men to show every emotion available,” Savage starts out. “I’ve cried a thousand times and I’m gonna cry some more.”

Macho Man then goes on to say there’s “one guarantee in life” and it’s “there are no guarantees.” He then gives an inspiring message saying if you get knocked down, you should get back up, and fight again.

The clip quickly went viral on Twitter, amassing more than 23.5k likes at the time of writing. Many people also quote retweeted the clip commenting how profound and beautiful Savage’s words were:

He sadly passed away in 2011

Macho Man Randy Savage tragically died in a car accident in 2011 at the age of 58. Fox News confirmed the wrestling star “died after having a heart attack while driving his Jeep Wrangler” in the Tampa Bay area.

At the time, Savage had just celebrated his first wedding anniversary with wife Lynn. It was his second marriage, after marrying Elizabeth Hulette, better known as “Miss Elizabeth,” in 1984.

His WWE Superstar bio perfectly summed up his career, writing no wrestler was ever “more colorful.” It continued: “His style – perfectly punctuated by his entrance music, Pomp And Circumstance – has only been outshone by his performance in the ring, which helped him capture two WWE Championships, two World Heavyweight Championships, and a 14-month reign as Intercontinental Champion.”

It’s great to see the memory of Macho Man Randy Savage lives on today.
