Oh yeah! WWE 12 adds Macho Man Randy Savage as DLC

This year we lost one of the true greats of entertainment. Though he was most famous as a pro wrestler, Macho Man Randy Savage embodied so much more than that. Whether selling you on Slim Jims, fighting Spider-Man, or just talking like the crazy person, we loved him. And even though he’s now participating in that big WrestleMania in the sky, you can still remember with this new tribute to him, provided you have a copy of WWE ’12 and an internet connection. That’s because today Randy Savage has been revealed as a DLC character for the upcoming pro wrestling game.

He looks great, though part of us wish he was more like his late 80s era self instead of early 90s, but that’s just a minor issue. Just seeing Savage drop the elbow on a digital Ricky Steamboat pulled on our heartstrings. And Savage isn’t the only ex-WWE employee to return in this game, as we’ve seen also Brock Lesnar make a digital comeback.

We’ll leave you with our very unironic tribute to our childhood hero that we made shortly after his passing. Rest in peace Macho.
