Randall Mario Poffo (born November 15, 1952 in Columbus, Ohio) better known by his ring name "Macho Man" Randy Savage, is a former American professional wrestler. Savage achieved prominence in the World Wrestling Federation and later World Championship Wrestling. For much of his tenure in the WWF, he was managed by his real life wife, "Miss Elizabeth" Hulette. He has won six World Heavyweight Championships over the course of his career. Savage became instantly regonizable by wrestling fans for his distinctively deep, husky voice, colorful attire (often comprised of sunglasses and a bandana, gaudy robes and/or a cowboy hat), and his catch phrase "Oooh, yeah!"

Career

Early career

He is a second-generation professional wrestler; his father Angelo Poffo was a well-known wrestler in the 1950s and 1960s, who was featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not! for his ability to do sit-ups for hours on end. Randy's brother Lanny had a moderately successful career as a wrestler, too, most notably under the names "Leaping Lanny Poffo" and "The Genius."

Randy first broke into the business in the early 1970s during the fall and winter of the baseball off season. His first wrestling character, "The Spider Friend", was similar to Spider-Man. It is interesting to note that he would appear as a wrestler in the first Spider Man film in 2002. His name change from Randy Poffo came at the suggestion of Georgia Championship Wrestling booker Ole Anderson, who said that the name Poffo didn't fit someone who "wrestled like a savage". During this transition from Poffo to Savage, he also toyed with the idea of wrestling as a blue clad medicine man named "The Big Geno", rumors were spread of a drug problem during his first few matches, as was common with early independent wrestlers, and Savage quietly put to rest the short lived Geno. To this day Savage refuses to answer questions regarding The Big Geno and, eerily enough, he seems to become visibly shaken when this pseudonym is brought up. When he decided to abandon his baseball career, he became a full time wrestler working with his brother and father. Savage wrestled his first match against Midwest territory wrestler, the "Golden Boy" Paul Christy. Randy worked with his father and brother in Michigan, the Carolinas, Georgia, the Maritimes, and the eastern Tennessee territory run by Nick Gulas.

After a while, his father felt that his sons were not getting the pushes they deserved so he started the "outlaw" International Championship Wrestling (ICW) promotion in the mid-American states. International Championship Wrestling was a short-lived independent professional wrestling promotion based in Lexington, Kentucky. ...


Eventually, ICW disbanded and Randy and Lanny entered the Memphis scene, joining Jerry Lawler's Continental Wrestling Association (their former competitors). While there, Savage feuded with Lawler over the AWA Southern Heavyweight Championship. He also teamed with Lanny to battle The Rock 'n' Roll Express; this feud included one infamous match on June 25, 1984 in Memphis, where Savage (kayfabe) injured Ricky Morton by piledriving him through the timekeeper's table, leading to the Express winning by disqualification. Later in 1984, Savage turned face and allied with Lawler against Jimmy Hart's First Family stable, only to turn heel on Lawler again in early-1985 and resume the feud over the title.

World Wrestling Federation (1985-1994)

In June 1985, Savage signed with Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Federation. One of Savage's first appearances was on Tuesday Night Titans, where the established WWF managers all made their cases to offer their services to Savage (including Bobby Heenan, Jimmy Hart, and "Classy" Freddie Blassie). Savage eventually rejected all these offers in favor of his new manager, the debuting Miss Elizabeth. He made his pay-per-view debut at The Wrestling Classic on November 7, 1985, where he defeated Ivan Putski, Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat, and the Dynamite Kid on his way to finishing runner-up to Junkyard Dog in a sixteen man tournament.

He eventually beat Tito Santana to win the WWF Intercontinental Championship at the Boston Garden on February 8, 1986 by using an illegal steel object stashed in his tights. Early on in his WWF career, Savage also won two countout victories in Madison Square Garden over his future tag-team partner WWF Champion Hulk Hogan (although the belt did not change due to the countout) and engaged in brutal feuds with Bruno Sammartino and George "the Animal" Steele.

WrestleMania III

Savage wrestled in what is widely considered to be one of the greatest matches in North American wrestling history when he faced Ricky Steamboat at WrestleMania III in the Pontiac Silverdome. The match was the culmination of a long and bitter feud (which saw Savage crush Steamboat's larynx in kayfabe) and featured tremendous athleticism and in-ring storytelling. After nineteen two-counts, Steamboat pinned Savage (with help from George Steele, who pushed Savage from the top rope seconds before he was pinned) to end his near 14 month reign as Intercontinental champion. The match was extremely choreographed, as opposed to the "on the fly" nature of most wrestling matches at the time. Savage was a stickler for detail, and he and Steamboat laid out and rehearsed every spot in the match prior to WrestleMania, at his home in Florida. The highly influential match was considered an instant classic by both fans and critics and was named 1987's Match of the Year by both Pro Wrestling Illustrated and the Wrestling Observer. Steamboat and Randy Savage were even reported cheering and hugging with other wrestlers after the match.

The Mega-Powers

Savage turned face later in 1987 after drawing increasingly positive reactions for his charisma, in-ring ability, and the estimable presence of Miss Elizabeth and began to feud with The Honky Tonk Man after Honky began to refer to himself as the "greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time." On Saturday Night's Main Event in October 1987 he solidified his status as a face when Elizabeth got Hulk Hogan to save him from a beatdown by Jimmy Hart's cronies, The Honky Tonk Man and The Hart Foundation. As a result, The Mega Powers were born. Hogan and Savage together ruled the WWF for the next sixteen months. In later years in the WWF, he also became known for a very open and unscripted rivalry with Hogan after Savage accused Hogan of sleeping in Elizabeth's bed during a road trip. Savage and Elizabeth were divorced on September 18, 1992. Savage and Hogan have a strained relationship to this day. It has been speculated that Savage punched Hogan in the face just prior to WrestleMania IX, causing Hogan to have a swollen eye during the event. The story was found to be untrue. WWE (then WWF) said that Hogan's swollen eye was due to a jet-ski accident.

Savage reached the pinnacle of his career to date during WrestleMania IV when after defeating Butch Reed, Greg Valentine, and One Man Gang on the same day, he defeated "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase in the finals of a tournament for the vacant WWF Championship. With help from Hulk Hogan, Macho Man pinned DiBiase. Despite the WWF's disappointment in the "somber" crowd in Atlantic City, nothing like the one witnessed a year earlier in Wrestlemania III in Pontiac, it was seen as a rejuvenation of a sport getting tired of the same champion [citation needed]. However, Hogan's popularity would never be successfully overcome by Savage. Savage would set a new trend however because, after turning face, he would retain many fans who adored him as a heel. Savage held the title for just over a full year before losing it to Hogan at WrestleMania V in 1989. Prior to his WrestleMania V match, he turned heel on Hogan, getting jealous of him over Miss Elizabeth as well as his self-perceived third-banana standing in the Mega Powers. He eventually replaced Elizabeth as his valet with Sensational Sherri. Savage would co-main event SummerSlam '89, where he teamed with Zeus, a character from Hulk Hogan's movie, No Holds Barred, against Hogan and Brutus Beefcake.

Macho King and "retirement"

He adopted the moniker "Macho King" after defeating Jim Duggan for the makeshift King's Crown Championship (a moniker originally given to Harley Race on his WWF arrival.) After the match, Savage proceeded to give Duggan five big elbow drops from the top rope and Sherri did several splashes from the top to further humiliate Duggan. On a later wrestling episode, he had a coronation as the new "King of the WWF" led by wrestler The Genius (actually Savage's brother, Lanny Poffo), with Dibiase giving him a sceptor as a gift. Savage would use that sceptor as a weapon numerous times during his duration as "The Macho King."

Through most of 1990, the "Macho King" feuded with the "commoner" Dusty Rhodes, losing a mixed-tag match (along with Sherri) to Rhodes & Sapphire at WrestleMania VI but beating him in a singles match at SummerSlam.

After SummerSlam, Savage started a feud with then-WWF champion The Ultimate Warrior. The feud escalated at the Royal Rumble in 1991 when Warrior refused to grant Savage the No. 1 contendership after Sgt. Slaughter (Warrior's opponent for the event) had already promised to do should he beat Warrior. Savage had sent "Sensational Queen" Sherri out during the 1991 Royal Rumble to try and convince the Warrior in a face-to-face interview laced with sexual innuendos. This failed to get anywhere with the champion. Outraged, Savage promised revenge, which he got during the Slaughter-Warrior title match. Savage interfered several times during the match.

This led to a career-ending match at WrestleMania VII. Savage lost the match after delivering five consecutive elbow drops as the Warrior somehow managed to kick out and return to score the victory after several flying clotheslines and shoulder blocks. After the match, Savage was attacked by Queen Sherri as he lay dejected in the ring. This was too much for Miss Elizabeth who happened to be in the audience. Elizabeth rushed to Savage's aid, fighting off Sherri and reuniting with her one-time love to huge crowd appreciation. The match was far from a legitimate "retirement" match, especially since Savage stayed in WWF afterwards while the Ultimate Warrior himself eventually left at SummerSlam that year.

Later WWF career

Savage returned to TV in a non-wrestling role as the "Macho Man" after WrestleMania VII as a broadcaster. Meanwhile the angle with Miss Elizabeth continued, culminating with Savage "proposing" to her in the ring leading to an on-air "wedding" at SummerSlam 1991 dubbed The Match Made in Heaven. It was at this time that Savage was targeted by Jake "The Snake" Roberts, who was by now a dastardly heel. On an episode of Prime Time Wrestling prior to SummerSlam, the announcers and several other babyface wrestlers threw a "bachelor party" for Savage, with Roberts' arrival deemed unwelcome by the rest of the contingent due to his recent heel turn.

In response, Roberts ambushed Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth at the wedding reception by putting a snake in their pile of wedding presents. Later, while Savage began a public campaign to get himself reinstated, Roberts forced a cobra to bite Savage's arm as the Macho Man was tied up in the ropes (seen on WWF Superstars). Due to fan pressure brought on by Savage's lobbying, Savage was "re-instated" as a wrestler by WWF president Jack Tunney so that he could do battle with Roberts. During the Tuesday in Texas pay-per-view, Roberts — after losing to Savage — beat him down with three DDTs and then forced Elizabeth to beg for mercy towards her husband; when Roberts was dissatisfied with her, he slapped Elizabeth hard across the face. The feud finally ended after a Saturday Night's Main Event match in February 1992.

Savage then had another run as WWF Champion, defeating "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair at WrestleMania VIII in 1992. In this feud, Flair claimed that he had slept and carried on relations with Savage's wife Miss Elizabeth, going as far as presenting pictures of Elizabeth in which Flair had himself superimposed. Savage held the championship until September of that year, when he lost it back to Flair at a WWF TV taping in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Savage and Flair later swapped the WCW World Heavyweight Championship during their 199596 feud making them the only duo to win and lose both the WWF/E and WCW versions of the world title to each other.

However, Savage interfered in Flair's match vs. Alex Wright. He attacked Flair and caused Wright to get disqualified, setting up a tournament semifinal match where the winner would face the winner of the Sting vs. Meng match for the United States Championship at The Great American Bash that June. Savage and Flair's match never took place, as Savage and Flair brawled in the backstage area prior to the bell ringing. They were both eliminated from the tournament, and had their own match in the main event of the Bash, which Flair won with underhanded tactics. However, Savage won a lumberjack match the next month at Bash at the Beach. Later on that year, during part of the storyline where Arn Anderson and Ric Flair turned on each other, Flair (looking for a partner to take on Anderson and Brian Pillman in a tag match) tried to recruit Savage to be his partner.

In 1995, Savage pushed for WCW to place his father, Angelo Poffo, in its Hall of Fame.

He made only one more appearance in 1998, helping Ric Flair defeat Eric Bischoff for the Presidency of WCW on the December 28, 1998 episode of Monday Nitro.

For a short time after, Randy interfered in DDP's matches to make sure that Page kept his World Title (for reasons unknown and never explained by WCW; assumed that, given their past rivalry, he wanted DDP to keep the belt so that he could win it from him), but when Kevin Nash won it at Slamboree 1999, Savage went after the title himself.

Savage's ring entrance music in the WWF was Pomp and Circumstance, known best as the theme played at high school graduations. The song was originally used by legendary wrestler "Gorgeous George" (who is credited as being the first wrestler to use an entrance theme). Because the song was in the public domain and therefore could not be copyrighted by the WWF like most themes, Savage was able to bring it with him to WCW and used a rock version of the theme for much of his early to mid-WCW career). During his short TNA Wrestling stint, Savage used a similar rock version as his theme. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Randy Savage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (4012 words)
Savage wrestled in what is widely considered to be one of the greatest matches in North American wrestling history when he faced Steamboat at WrestleMania III in the Pontiac Silverdome.
Savage would return to TV in a non-wrestling role as the "Macho Man" again over the summer with Miss Elizabeth and "propose" to her in the ring, leading to an on-air "wedding" at SummerSlam 1991, dubbed The Match Made in Heaven.
Savage dominated the early goings and after he knocked Piper down with a series of punches, he went climbed to the top rop to perform his patented elbow drop, but the leg gave out on him and he fell to the mat, again clutching his leg.
