The body of the late Randy Savage was cremated Tuesday and his ashes were spread at the base of a tree at his Largo, Florida home, reports TMZ.com. In compliance with his final request, the family did not play his trademark wrestling theme music during the ceremony.
According to Randy’s brother Lanny Poffo, the wrestling legend adamantly requested that in his funeral plans, his theme music, Pomp and Circumstance, was not to be played while he was laid to rest.
TMZ reports that in recent years, Savage felt “extremely guilty” about using the song because it was initially used by his idol, wrestling legend Gorgeous George. He felt like he stole George’s thunder.
Poffo says Randy’s closest friends and family members will meet again in Florida Thursday to continue to mourn and honor his memory.
