— WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes spoke with The Associated Press Friday regarding the death of Randy Savage.
“There’s probably five or six of us, with Andre (the Giant) and (Hulk) Hogan and thankfully myself and (Ric) Flair, that, when their names pop up, even if you’re not a fan, you know who in the hell these people are,” said Rhodes.
“You say, ‘I know this guy. I know Macho Man Randy Savage.’ He was part of that breed. We lost a good one… He was a recluse, almost. Whatever he was doing, he wanted that privacy. Yeah, he was out of the picture for 10 years, but he didn’t want to be in the picture.
