Yesterday, wrestling fans worldwide heard the news they’ve been waiting for for many years – that the late Randy “Macho Man” Savage would be inducted into the Stamford’s own WWE Hall of Fame.

Back in 2003, Savage recorded an album. Not really known for his singing voice, since his speaking voice was, while unique, somewhat hoarse. But he didn’t just record any album – he recorded a rap album (with a diss tracks of Hulk Hogan!!) titled Be a Man.
Somehow, DJ Cummerbund was able to take one of those tracks, fuse it into “Uptown Funk,” and the greatest remix you’ll ever hear was born:
