Not to take anything away from Ian McDiarmid's Senator/Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious portrayal across forty years and five different Star Wars movies, but you have to admit, Randy Savage would have been pretty epic in the role. Just the way he puts the macho into everything he did, it would have been a fitting tribute.

"I am the Senate yuueeaaahhhh"

Full disclosure, I still haven't seen "Rise of the Skywalker" yet, though I read most of the spoilers... Still, I'll probably get around to enjoying it this weekend some time provided the theaters are dwindling in attendance.
