Savage, a megastar for WWE and WCW, died in 2011. The late wrestler’s brother, “The Genius” Lanny Poffo, told Sports Illustrated his brother would be thrilled by the special figure.
“Randy loved Slim Jim and Slim Jim loved him,” said Poffo. “He believed in the product and saw this as another way to be accessible to his fans. It’s nice to know that people still remember.”
