This week's Work of Wrestling is devoted entirely to a story about The Macho Man Randy Savage submitted by self-proclaimed nerd-for-life Mike Talor (@SlingerOtheWebs on Twitter). Part One is a description of Mike's first live event and his first encounter with The Macho Man, a transformative experience that turned Mike from Savage hater to lifelong fan. Part Two is a story that takes place many years later at Mike's local gym, where a chance encounter with Randy Savage revealed the wrestler's kindness and appreciation for his fans. Read both stories in blog-form at Submit your stories for similar dramatic readings on the podcast to Follow Work of Wrestling host Tim Kail on Twitter @MaximusWrestler and like The Work of Wrestling Facebook Page. Have a nice day!
