Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage has been an integral part of the world of pro-wrestling, especially for WWE (then known as WWF). Savage carried the company on his back with some intriguing storylines with the likes of Hulk Hogan, Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat, and his future wife, Elizabeth. However, it looks like Shane McMahon has some unsaid bad blood with the former WWF Champion.

Shane McMahon ripped the poster of Randy Savage

Speaking on the 6:05 Superpodcast, Brian Solomon detailed an incident where Shane McMahon once poked and stepped on a poster of Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage.

Shane O’ Mac was the head of Solomon’s department for a brief period. Allegedly, one day, Shane casually went up to a wall and poked the poster multiple times with his finger.

Brian said, “We would have wrestling posters on the wall. We had a Randy Savage one up. I remember at one time I was working for Shane McMahon. He was the head of our department for a little while. I remember he came out of his office. He saw the Randy Savage poster tacked to the wall.” 

“He walked over to it. Poked it as hard as he could with his fingers repeatedly until it fell off the wall, then he stepped on it, and walked back into his office,” said Brian Solomon about Shane McMahon.

This is certainly an interesting revelation because no information ever became public related to a beef between Shane McMahon and Randy Savage.

Whatever may be the reason for Shane’s actions, there’s no denying the fact that the Macho Man was one of the pioneers of pro-wrestling during the golden era of WWE.
