Jay Lethal Discusses Randy Savage Loving His Macho Man Impressions

Published

Ring of Honor World Champion Jay Lethal is known for his in-ring talent, but also for his ability on the mic, mainly for his impersonations of legendary pro wrestlers such as Ric Flair and Randy “Macho Man” Savage.

Lethal’s work doing impressions of Savage were memorable, and even caught the attention of the late WWE Hall of Famer.

During an interview with Gamespot, Lethal discusses his infamous “Black Machismo” gimmick, and Savage’s reaction to it.

The first time I spoke with [Macho Man Randy Savage], now I’m gonna be honest, I didn’t believe it was him because I can do a pretty good Macho Man impression, and I’m sure other people could too. I’m sure that I know a couple people who can do one” Lethal stated.

“So, when I was talking to him on the phone, deep down inside, I thought this could be somebody else playing a trick on me. Until Lanny [Poffo] actually confirmed that it was his brother. But he loved it. He said he didn’t watch it on TV but he did watch some of the stuff, he pulled my stuff up on YouTube and he absolutely loved it.”

Lethal’s impersonation was well received by Savage’s brother, Lanny Poffo, and recalled an interaction between the two.

“He loved it so much that at the All In pay-per-view, the days before Starrcast, big signing, there was so much to do. Well, I had a signing with Lanny, we were at the same table and he told me, ‘One of the things that I miss the most about my brother is, just sometimes at random times he would just yell at me. So if you could, just at random times throughout this signing just find a reason to yell at me I would love it.’”

WWE Smackdown vs. Raw: Who won this week? March 19, 2019

Published

The Good

For Raw, the main event between Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre was a great match and ended the show on a good note. McIntyre won after a Brock Lesnar distraction, which helps give McIntyre more momentum into Wrestlemania for his match against Roman Reigns as he looks to beat everybody from the Shield. This segment also keeps building up the Universal Championship match as Lesnar gained the upper hand this week.

For Smackdown, the Kofi Kingston gauntlet match took up half of the show, and it was a overall solid series of events to help keep Kingston’s story moving forward. After Kingston thought he finally overcame everything that was put in front of him, Vince McMahon announced that he had one more match left, and it was against Daniel Bryan. Bryan ended up winning, which now leaves questions going into next week’s show and really is great considering this is all for the WWE Championship, which now has a more important feel to it.

The Bad

For Raw, they tried to make it a mystery as to who would be Finn Balor’s tag team partner against Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush, but the pick ended up being Braun Strowman, which could’ve been predicted. Along with that, this is a match we have seen more than once in the past few months, so it just felt like filler at this point. There is still questions as to what is in store for the Intercontinental Championship at Wrestlemania, which is not a good sign.

For Smackdown, the segment between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair on the Kevin Owens show might have taken out some of the strength of the build up for the Women’s Championship match between Rousey, Lynch, and Flair. We already know what we has happened between Lynch and Flair because they have been battling each other for the past seven months. This segment is just something we have already seen between these two, so it would’ve been better if more of the attention on this segment was focused on Ronda Rousey. 

The Final Verdict

Both brands are putting a majority of their show into Wrestlemania, which is how they should be. But, the overall delivery of the build up for these matches this week seem to be better on Raw this week. Batista’s interview, Brock Lesnar’s appearance, and a solid main event give Raw the better show this week. Both brands have been putting on entertaining shows for a majority of 2019, so lets hope that this continues for not just Wrestlemania, but all the PPV’s after.
