Randy Savagisms

What are the absolute greatest and most iconic Macho Man quotes of all time?

Oh Yeah! Macho Man Randy Savage is renowned as one of the absolute greatest of all time both in the ring and out. A character so large he became not only a sports entertainment icon but a pop culture icon as well! A name-stay of the 80s and 90s and still commonplace today, the late great Macho Man has certainly left his impact over multiple generations. With a aura about him that will seemingly ever fade, we’re looking back at some of the most iconic and quoted Randy Savage lines of all time, DIG IT!

Comparatively Speaking,

Combine your typical mumbled, adrenaline fueled, rage induced 80s wrestling promo with surpassing articulation and metaphors and you’ve got yourself a classic Randy Savage promo. Never had this been more evident than in the build up to The Macho Man’s Intercontinental Championship match against Champion Tito Santana. In a backstage interview for the history books with the legendary Mean Gene Okerlund, Savage began his now infamous rant by presenting a trash bin seemingly from nowhere before uttering the phenomenal line, “Tito Santana, Comparatively speaking you are nothing but garbage.” In an interview segment full of memorable lines and actions, including the iconic “Grain of Sand” bit, we’ve got to go with the one that started us down the rabbit hole!

Funky like a monkey

Honestly It baffles me this one isn’t more commonplace in the casual discussion of Randy Savage! One of the most out there and wacky lines in his arsenal, The a Macho King would occasionally bust it out be it backstage or on talk shows! With a dead serious demeanor and without missing a cue only Savage could utter the iconic phrase, “The tower of power, Too sweet to be sour, Funky like a monkey, Sky’s the limit and space is the place.” And still come off as a total badass! Our overly sized rhinestone and feather hat is off to you King!

You Can’t Say That!

Sometimes the best moments are blink and you miss it situations, and this entry is no exception! Finding ourselves backstage once again with Mean Gene, Randy Savage begins explaining to the analyst that he could beat Larry Bird on a basketball court, before then informing the viewing audience of his friendship with musician Rod Stewart! Recounting a phone call between the two Macho explains that “Macho Madness is more seductive than sex.” Which is only made greater by Mean Gene’s reaction of, “You can’t say that on Tv!” Tying it all together is the ever slick Macho Man retorting, “I can say that.” We can’t argue with that logic!

Not a Racist!

In today’s day and age being called a racist simply because of a minor disagreement seems an unfortunate common place. While many artists, actors, and celebrities have found themselves in headlines over remarks they may or may not have made decades ago that are now deemed “inappropriate” Macho Man Randy Savage made his stance very clear on the issue of race. Appearing as a guest on the Arsenio Hall Show, Randy Savage walked out to the set head to toe in full wrestling gear. Upon sitting down to start the episode, Arsenio moved an ottoman out of shot to discuss Macho’s boots. When he began his question by addressing the fact Savage was in fact wearing one white and one black boot, Macho was too quick on the draw blurting out, “I’m not a racist!” This is why we love you Randy!

Snap Into It!

The Macho Man became a larger than life household name in part to his illustrious thEn WWF career, but it was his iconic Slim Jim commercials that brought The Macho King into homes to stay! One of the most quoted, imitated, and well known advertisements of all time, nothing since has seemed to have the lasting impact as that of Savages Slim Jim promotions! While they may have attempted to rekindle the magic in recent years, sorry Edge, but nothing will ever surpass the over the top enthusiasm of Randy Savage snapping into a Slim Jim!

(Honorable Mention)

With so many iconic lines and promos to dig through its nearly impossible not to leave any out. However, it just wouldn’t feel right to exclude the iconic “Cream of The Crop” promo! While rather than any specific line, this entire promo is solid gold! From savage’s wild movements around a rather confused Mean Gene, to him pulling seemingly an unending amount of creamer from out of thin air, Randy Savage proves in this interview alone that he truly is The Cream of the Crop!

Youtube.com: CGatto

Oh, Yeah!

It is absolutely impossible to talk about The Macho Man without mimicking his trademark, “Oh, Yeah!” Step aside Kool-Aid Man, The Macho King is the true innovator of the popular phrase. Present is almost every single Randy Savage promo ever recorded and transcending the world of spots entertainment, The Macho Man changed American Culture with his trademark voice and two simple words, Oh, Yeah!

Fallout’s Cut Content

The Fallout series most interesting and mysterious cut content

The Fallout series has adapted, improved, and tested numerous new ideas and gameplay modifications over the years right in front of our eyes as the series progressed. However, there are still plenty of scrapped concepts and designs that we never got to experience first hand in post-apocalyptia. The following are just a few examples of interesting and mysterious cut content of the Fallout franchise we’ve been able to uncover.

Tenpenny Tower Radio

YouTube.com/ Ketaruz

Home to the “elite” of the Capital Wasteland, Tenpenny Tower is the brainchild of founder Allistair Tenpenny. The prewar hotel remains relatively untouched by the outside world and as such, the residents have taken up a prewar lifestyle to compliment that. Dressed head to toe in Casualwear and Parkstroller outfits, you can’t expect the residents of such a classy establishment to be subjected to the rough and rowdy sounds of Galaxy News Radio! Enter Tenpenny Tower Radio. A station seemingly cut for unknown reasons in the late stages of development, several audio files can still be pulled from Allistair Tenpenny’s file!

Vault 120

Aminoapps.com

Most likely to be an end result of completing Fallout 4’s cut quest, 20 Leagues Under the Sea, Vault 120 was to be located in the waters of The Commonwealth! Files and assets for this vault can still be found using the Fallout 4 Creation Kit as well as several unused scripts referencing the underwater vault. Furthermore, Vault 120 appears to have been tossed around as an idea for the wild wasteland of Appalachia in Fallout 76 as multiple unused cells can be found for Vault 120 that are not present in the files for Fallout 4. Don’t be surprised when the next Fallout title or even 76 DLC features this underwater mystery.

Catfish Mierlurk

Fallout.Fandom.com

Sticking to the underwater genre, there have been several references to a catfish like creature across multiple titles In the Fallout franchise. That being said there shouldn’t be any surprise the idea has been toyed with as to how it should be represented in game. The only official In game name given to the creature occurs in Fallout when a fisherman speaks of a “Giant Catfish” . However, Fallout 3’s concept art shows the idea for a mierlurk variant referred to as the “Catfish Mirelurk” a mutated bipedal fish with menacing teeth and barbs that very well could’ve been another obstacle for The alone Wanderer. Yet another entry we are expecting to eventually see become canon.

Vault 65

Fallout.fandom.com

A vault cut from the final release of Fallout 76, Vault 65 contains numerous files depicting a large scale vault including several rooms, elevators, machinery, and crafting stations. Diving into the game files will find the vault also referred to as “Vault 75” which might have been an early prototype for Vault 76 or other larger scale vaults according to Fallout Wiki. Interestingly enough while this vault was cut and may not even have ever been intended for gameplay, a Vault 65 trunk does exist alongside the other canon vault numbered containers.

Vault 11 Survivor

Fallout.Fandom.com

Naturally, a game built around the idea of surviving nuclear annihilation via underground vaults is going to have plenty of vault related content that doesn’t make it off the cutting room floor. With that said, we tack on our third vault related entry to the list. Located in the barren wastes of the Mohave, Vault 11 played host to one of Vault-Tec’s darkest social experiments. For those not familiar, residents of the vault were told each year one member of their community must be scarified in order for the rest of them to be able to sustainably survive, failure to do so would result in all dwellers death. In reality, Vault-Tec had a prepared message once the residents refused to do so explaining they are a true beacon of humanity and as a reward for not killing one another would be granted access to the vault door. Unfortunately the dwellers found this out much too late, with only 5 remaining survivors. The final five are said to have gone insane form the realization of that they had done resulting in eventual suicide or homicide of all the remaining member except for one. This one remaining member was originally meant to be able to be discovered in game with game files containing a character model able to be spawned via console commands. However, unlike the previous entries, while the NPC itself was removed, this character as a concept is still canon thanks to the Holotapes able to be collected in Vault 11.

Mister Burke

DiviantArt.com/ Vincent-Is-Mine

Now I know what you’re thinking, “Mr.Burke? One of the primary characters in Fallout 3? Someone who is directly involved in one of the largest choices the player can make in game?” Yes. While the majority of us who have played through Fallout 3 are faced early on with the option to either save or destroy the town of Megaton courtesy of Mister Burke, players who revived the Japanese version of the game did not! The Japanese release of Fallout 3 featured the removal of Mister Burke and with him the players ability to revive the detonation device, meaning destroying Megaton wasn’t even an option! While this was removed for “Cultural Reasons” and understandably so, it just seems odd to play through the events of Fallout 3 without one of the biggest choices the character has to make, as well as seemingly removing much of the appeal of Tenpenny tower.

These are just a handful of the mysteriously interesting cut content found within the Fallout series. As always, we’d love to hear your favorite content that never got the chance to make it to release day! Let us know in the comments down below, and check out more Fallout related content right here!

Fallout 5 Release Date

How far away exactly are we from the release of the next main entry in the Fallout series?

(Opinion piece featuring an estimated time table)

It’s the question that comes around every couple years, when is the next Fallout game coming out? With the varied reactions received upon the release of the online multiplayer RPG, Fallout 76 it seems now more than ever fans of the franchise have been clamoring for the next title in the series. Unfortunately, it seems as though Fallout 5 may take longer than most expected.

In September of 2020 Microsoft announced their recent purchase of ZeniMax Studios, the parent company of Bethesda Softworks. Upon this purchase many fans of the beloved Bethesda franchises such as Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, and Doom began to worry future releases of these series would be exclusive to Xbox/PC. Contrary to these rumors, Xbox head Phil Spencer stated moving forward Xbox exclusives will be determined on a “case by case basis.” This however does not mean an Xbox exclusive Fallout title is completely out of the picture just yet however. While the next project under Bethesda (after honoring their two previously agreed upon Sony exclusive titles: “Ghostwire: Tokyo” and “Deathloop”) “Starfield” will be exclusive to Xbox and PC gamers via Game Pass, moving forward it would appear doubtful to see major Bethesda titles released on Sony or Nintendo.

Bethesda.net

But when exactly could we see the next Fallout?

While we already know the previously mentioned “Starfield” will be the next title under Bethesda, it would also seem the next project in line will be “The Elder Scrolls VI” releasing sometime after 2021, according to TechRadar.com. With that being said Fallout 5 may not even be in the picture until the mid to late 2020’s! While it is possible for studios to begin working on one title before finishing another, with a series as big and as detailed as The Elder Scrolls it seems very unlikely this will be the case.

Previously in the Fallout series we’ve seen a gap as large as 7 years between main title entries Fallout 3 and Fallout 4. However in that time we were also given Fallout: New Vegas in the fall of 2010. While another minor title seems unlikely with the structure of Fallout 76 seemingly put in place to continue being updated for many years moving forward, not so improbable would be a digital remaster of one of the previously listed titles under Microsoft’s new ownership. As far as the projected release date of Fallout 5 goes, Reddit user Noah-x3 has broken down the past four main series Bethesda releases, estimating Fallout 5 might take until the year 2030 or more!

Reddit.com (Noah-x3 in r/Fallout)

Wether or not Bethesda can surprise us again like they did back in 2015 with the announcement of Fallout 4 is up in the air. Of course at this point in time it’s all still speculation but If reality looks anything like how it’s being projected however, it might be time to sit back and get comfortable with Fallout 76 and see just what exactly Bethesda has in store for the future of the series. Let is know when you believe Fallout 5 could hit the shelves in the comment section below and check out more Fallout related blogs right here!

TNT Title Retired

All Elite Wrestling has officially retired the TNT Championship.

This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite showcased the life and career of the recently deceased Brodie Lee. Mr. Brodie Lee was a well respected and loved member of the AEW roster as well as the wrestling community. The evening was a beautiful display of wrestlers, friends, and family all joined together in honor of the former TNT Champion, Jon Huber. The match card presented was heavily influenced and designed by Brodie’s eight year old son, Brodie Jr who had quite the night himself. In the pinacol of the evenings celebration of life, AEW’s President Tony Khan as well as Vice President Cody Rhodes joined the Huber family in the ring to retire the boots of the beloved family man. Along with the symbolic retirement, Tony Khan also awarded Brodie Jr. the TNT Championship stating, his father was the greatest TNT Champion and will be known as “TNT Champion for life.”

In addition to the TNT Championship, Brodie Jr. was signed to an AEW contract. The contract states once the eight year old is of age to compete he will receive the proper training and a guaranteed spot on the roster.

You can watch the full segment below:

All Elite Wrestling – YouTube

The news of the title was broken by AEW commentator and veteran Tony Schiavone after the show went off air. According to All Elite Wrestling is is NOT the retirement of the championship but rather the current design which was held by the late Brodie Lee. The future design and current status of championship holder Darby Allin‘s title reign is currently unknown.

Wrestling Rules That Are Completely Ignored

Completely Ignored Wrestling Rules

If you’ve sat in front of your TV set watching the weekly spectacle that is sports entertainment for the better part of a quarter of the last century, you’d probably think you’ve got a pretty solid grasp of the rules right? Legal men, tag ropes, the Shawn Michaels rule, all that good stuff! However, if then following rules have slipped past your radar over the years then fret not, the all mighty World Wrestling Entertainment seemingly doesn’t know about them either. The following are the most completely ignored wrestling rules of all time.

No Choke Holds

bleacherreport.com

We’re kicking it off with a duzy! You’re probably thinking to yourself, I’ve seen hundreds of choke holds! There are choke hold finishers! The Sleeper, Hell’s Gate, The Million Dollar Dream! The WWE officially banned choke holds due to the extreme risk involved with the legitimacy of the litany of choke hold varieties. However, the WWE later defined what exactly they consider a choke hold as, “a hand around the throat for a prolonged period of time”(sportskeeda.com) in order to preserve the use of widely known and famous move such as previously discussed.

30 Day Defense Rule

WWE.com

We’re looking at you 2013 Dean Ambrose US title reign. According to the official WWE rule book, a title must be defended at least once every 30 days, failure to do so may result in the championship in question being vacated. A rule seemingly forgotten about in recent years, oddly enough it began to become a talking point during the 2013 United States Championship run of Dean Ambrose. During his 351 day title reign, the internet wrestling community began to grow aggravated at the lack of title defenses by one Dean Ambrose. Citing the 30 day title defense rule, the community’s general consensus even became a throw away gag in WWE weekly programing as Dean’s fellow shield members as well as on screen authority figures began speculating when he would next defend the belt. Since then it would seem this rule has been once again quietly pushed under the rug.

The Outlaw Rule

retroprowrestling.com

Originating on a June 8th 1998 episode of Monday Night Raw, The New Age Outlaws found themselves defending the WWE World Tag Team Championships in a three way tag match against LOD 2000 and the D.O.A. During the match both Road Dogg and Mr. Ass found themselves as the respective legal man. Taking advantage of a newly found loophole in the match, Road Dogg laid down to Billy fo the 1-2-3 to retain the tag straps. In light of this, the following week WWE rolled out “The Outlaw Rule” stating that in the instance of two members of the same team being tagged in, a pin could not decide a victory. (Ironically enough, technically there is still a loophole about submission based victories.) Once again, WWE’s hazy memory has bested them as now seemingly a regular spot in any high profile three way tag match is the obligatory partner pin attempt.

The Power of Attorney Rule

wwe.com

Only ever mentioned once on an episode of WCW Nitro, The power of attorney rule grants a title holder the ability to transfer their championship to a fellow superstar upon a lengthy injury rather than be forced to vacate their belt. DO NOT BE MISTAKEN, THIS IS A TERRIBLE RULE. The grandest prize in the game should never be treated like a hand me down, and quite literally, be given to a competitor without properly earning it. Over in the WWE however, we have only ever seen one instance that vaguely resembles this. Upon the injury of WWE Tag Team Champion,Edge in the summer of 2009, tag team partner Chris Jericho claimed he would defend and hold the belts by himself. Unfortunately for Y2J, WWE on screen authority ruled he would either have to find a new tag partner to fill the spot of The Rated R Superstar, or be forced to vacate the belts. Enter The Big Show.

The Mask Rule

mandatory.com

You’ve heard it time and time again, typically during any Rey Mysterio match of the past two decades. “A Luchador’s mask is a symbol of his heritage and honor.” It would appear the WWE’s research of the art of Lucha Libre stops there however. In lucha culture, not only is the mask the previously mentioned symbol, it is HEAVILY protected. While in public, luchadors remain under the mask and some even go as far as to be buried in them. In order to showcase this importance, it is highly illegal to remove the mask of another fighter if not previously agreed upon in a match stipulation. The removal of a mask not only results in the disqualification of the match but typically is followed by a hefty fine, suspension, or termination. While WWE is no stranger to the mask vs. mask or mask vs. hair stipulation, they are also no stranger to the random shock removal of a mask just for cheap heat.

Those were just a handful of commonly ignored rules in the WWE, did you know about them? Let me know if you think these rules should be enforced, or any other rules that should have made the list below! Be sure to check out more blogs just like this one right here as well!

King of The Hill Movie?

Is there a King of The Hill movie on the way?

On December 3rd 2020 the King of The Hill Facebook page uploaded a photo of a fan made KOTH movie poster. The poster features a live action cast of the animated characters Hank, Dale, Bill, Boomhauer, and Khan. While a KOTH movie has been a topic widely discussed in recent years, since the upload the King of The Hill community has been quite vocal in voicing their opinions on the cast choice of the theoretical film. While the possibility of Mike Judge signing off on a live action King of The Hill movie is still up in the air, we’ve complied some alternate casting choices that may fit the bill a litter more accurately!

Bill Dauterive

While the artist who composed the theoretical movie poster chose David Koechner to play the role of army barber Bill Dauterive, we here at StylesRebelRadio.com believe the right casting choice may have been right under our nose. Voice and veteran actor Stephen Root who provides the voice of Bill in the animated series is seemingly the perfect choice. With roles under his belt in films such as Dodgeball and Drillbit Taylor , Root is perfect for paying the role of the sympathetic, awkward friend. Not to mention there is absolutely no need to worry about recreating the well known voice!

Honorable mention to John C. Reilly.

Jeff Boomhauer

In the case that is the fast yet smooth talking ladies man, Boomhauer, we believe they hit the nail on the head with Matthew Mcconaughey! Who else could pull off the role of speaking absolute southern twanged nonsense and make it charming! We already know Mcconaughy is willing to go to any lengths necessary appearance wise to fill his role and while the voice not be exactly like the animated counterpart, we are sure Mcconaughey’s natural drawl and ability to ramble will fit the bill alright, alright, alright!

Kahn Souphanousinphone

For every great protagonist there has to be an equal foil. When it comes to the simple down home lifestyle Hank Hill lives by Kahn is the perfect foil. The over the top pompous, annoying, next door neighbor to the Hill family requires an actor with a wide range of emotions. While the proposed Ken Jong is not a bad choice by any means, for the role of Kahn we are looking for someone who can pull off the stern annoyed neighbor quality but transition to the over the top persona Jong is known for. For that, we are choosing John Cho. Cho is no stranger to the over the top antics frequented by Kahn, as showcased in the Harold and Kumar series! Cho also possesses the ranger however to pull off the stern, aggravated neighbor who is always ready with a quick qip as shown in his role as Sulu in 2009s Star Trek.

Dale Gribble

Once again we have to agree it with the proposed line up, Bill Hader for Dale Gribble seems like the absolute perfect fit. While other proposed casting choices include the likes of Neil Patrick Harris or Steve Buscemi as the role of Dale, something is seemingly left to be desired. Surely Mr. Buscemi or NPH would be able to make a memorable and fitting role as the man known as Rusty Shackleford, SNL legend Bill Hader without a doubt could go line for line with Dale Gribble. With the physical appearance to fit the part, Hader’s extensive library of impressions would seal the deal for a live action Dale Gribble.

Hank Hill

Now for the man of the hour! Hank Rutherford Hill is the stern, hardworking, blue collar main character of the King of The Hill series! Ironically this is the entry we have the most opposition too. Granted the most known and beloved character is typically the hardest to cast. The proposed choice, Tom Hanks, most likely chosen for his calm, stern demeanor and vague resemblance to Hank seems like a lazy and over exhausted pick. After scouring the internet for a more suitable live action adaptation, we are prepared to offer a fresh alternative to the table that we have not seen anywhere else.

Dennis Quaid is our pick to poetry Hank Hill. When deciding upon this casting, we broke down Hank Hill into three basic characteristics. First we looked at his appearance, Hank is a man plain and simple. Your stereotypical working and family man, Blue jeans, a tee shirt, and short respectable haircut. Dennis Quaid fits that bill fairly well. A harkening back to actors of the past Mr. Quaid has what we can best describe is the face of a man. Secondly, Hank Hill’s very distinct and impressionable voice. While not exactly a difficult impression to do, perhaps one of the hardest to master. Enter Dennis Quaid’s ability to study and recreate voices to near perfection! Don’t believe me, take his performance as the legendary Jerry Lee Lewis in Great Balls of Fire for example! Last but certainly not least, Hank Hill is a father. I mean, just look at him. Dennis Quaid just looks like your stereotypical dad. Need more convincing, check out his performance as the strict yet comedic father in the film Yous, Mine, and ours.

That’s our list! Let us know what you think and who you would cast to play all the characters in a King of The Hill live action film! Make sure to check out similar blogs on StylesRebelradio.com under The Rebel Blogs!

Fallout Weapons in Real Life

Real Life Fallout Weapons

If you’ve ever found yourself dismembering raiders in The Capital Wasteland with projectile coffee mugs and railroad spikes only to long for a reality where these implements if destruction exist, you’re not alone! Fortunately for us, the super-nerd exists. The following are some of the wildest and most impressive recreations of our favorite Fallout weapons!

Power Fist

Kicking it off with Ol’ Fisto himself, the Power Fist has been a Fallout series name stay. While having a few alterations throughout the years the base idea has remained the same, hydraulic metal fist. Often accompanied by rusty barbs on the end, The power fist is a melee build best friend. This real life adaptation hits the nail right on the head! Modeled off the basic Fallout 4 style Power Fist, this iteration is designed using compression similar to the in game design in order to propel the fist forward. Even to those who aren’t familiar with the Fallout series, this thing is 100% badass!

Shiskebab

IGN

Continuing on with the both visually pleasing and lore accurate, This adaptation of the popular melee weapon, The Shiskebab, is constructed using almost the same concept design as in the game! Mirroring it’s virtual counterpart the real life model uses a motorcycle handle at the helm and three burners along the blade to deliver a scolding cut. Unlike the game design however, rather than having a front facing nozzle to expel the flammable gas, the creators opted for the more realistic and sensical fuel rod along the side witch is ignited by a park in the center of the blade. That being said, visually this model is still to the tee even going as far as to include the false nozzle and gas spicket.

Rocket Bat

Fallout 4’s creation engine gave a new lease to basic melee weapons the series had included from day one. With the inclusion of the revamped weapons workbench, and more damn aluminium than you’d ever thought you’d need in your entire life, normal everyday blunt objects became weapons of mass destruction. One of the simplest yet most satisfying of the bunch however is the Rocket Bat. With multiple alterations, the baseball bat changes from a throwaway scrap piece of wood to a jet propelled killing machine. Two rocket thrusters bolted to a swatter, what’s more american than that? The real life adaptation is not far off! While significantly smaller rockets are used, for obvious reasons, this adaptation is nearly spot on in every sense of the word!

Pipe Rifle

Unlike the previous entries this adaptation of Fallout 4’s Pipe Rifle does not follow the in game schematic. While the in game rifle is calipered in .38 rounds, the real life model is a simple BB build. While there is a significant difference in stopping power, this BB adaptation may be the most accurate and functional real life design, unlike some other cosplay designs. Hell, you’ve played the game, feels like a BB gun anyway.

Laser Rifle

Now unlike the rest of the entries on this list, this one does not come to us straight off the screen of post-apocalyptia. While this laser rifle is NOT inspired by the fallout series, it is the most accurate recreation of one. While other cosplays may have the dimensions and appearance, none can lay claim to actually being able to disburse a functioning beam. Now this is one badass piece of science!
