    ''Macho Man'' Randy Savage

    Jew Score:
    6

    I3

    O1

    K2
    (Randall Mario Poffo)
    November 15, 1952 – May 20, 2011

    Randy Poffo, the professional wrestler who became Randy Savage and eventually "Macho Man" Randy Savage (yes, he has a nickname for his nickname. Disturbing, we know), is Halachically Jewish.

    Savage?

    Macho Man?

    If you were creating a Jewish wrestler, would these be the names you would choose? Yeah — us neither.

    What about, Randy "The Litigator" Poffo? Or Randy "The Often Quite Humorous" Poffo?

    Don't those sound more like Jewish wrestler names than Macho Man? Perhaps not as imposing, sure, but, really isn't accuracy more important than intimidation?

    We're sure Randy "The Especially Learned" Poffo would have agreed.

    Verdict: Barely a Jew.
