Randy "Macho Man" Savage will be cremated and his ashes co-mingled with the ashes of his loyal pooch, Hercules.
Savage's brother, Lanny Poffo, tells TMZ ... the dog's ashes were spread around Randy's favorite tree several years ago, and after Randy is cremated his ashes will be strewn there as well.
Lanny tells us Randy would always say, "If it's good enough for Herc, it's good enough for me!"
And ... although the Macho Man was one of the most beloved wrestlers of all time, there won't be a public memorial, because he didn't want one. The service will be small -- for family only.
