Why is this match in its entirety impossible to find on youtube? Fuck it highlights are gonna have to do. The match was amazing…From start to finish. Warrior did two things I thought were impressive he walked to the ring and actually wrestled.
The success of the match was due to Macho. Savage wasn’t Hulk Hogan (a mark for himself) Macho realized what worked for business. That was Warrior Kicking out of 5 Elbows added to the epicness of this match.
I cry as an adult during the Savage Liz reunion. What can I say I’m a romantic.
The elbow crushed his ego causing the choke. I wonder…. Did Mark Cuban pray to Macho Man Randy Savage and asked Savage to haunt Bron Bron? I like to think so. When does Savage get nominated for saint hood ? Between this miracle & saving us from the Rapture, I say he earned it. LOL at James shooting 3′s
On Friday May 20th, we lost an icon in the form of the “Macho Man” Randy Savage. There are so many great moments in Macho’s career I could talk about, but I’m choosing to talk about the moment that to me truly solidifies his super star status.
Wrestlemania V was the most bought Wrestlemania of it’s time, in fact it wasn’t until Wrestlemania 2000, some 11 years later, that that record was broken. And why was it so? ‘Cause for the first time ever they spent an ENTIRE YEAR building to one match, the main event THE MEGA POWERS EXPLODING. The hype began at Wrestlemania IV with the Macho Man walking out of the world title tournament the victor, with an assist from former champion: Hulk Hogan. The win cemented Savage as the No.2 baby face in the company, but it was on that night that the seeds were planted for his turn and his taking the top heel spot.
After the match Hogan, Macho Man and Macho’s “valet/love interest” Miss Elizabeth were filled with joy, and while caught up in the moment Hulkter hoisted Liz up high on his shoulder. And with that the hype had begun, the camera zoomed on to Savage to capture a reaction of sheer disgust, a glare in the direction of Hogan, one filled with rage and jealousy. BUT the moment was more important, so Savage just shrugged it off and celebrated alongside the Hulkster. This would be the first of many subtle hints that were dropped, before FINALLY Savage would snap and lose his cool in a tag team match pitting himself and Hogan against the Twin Towers (Akeem & The Big Boss Man) walking out on his partner after accidently taking out Elizabeth.
Hogan would go on to win the match all by himself, ‘cause back then that’s just what Hulk Hogan would do, but a crazed Savage would then attack and brutal batter the Hulkster back stage while he was being checked on by the medics. This would set the stage for perhaps my favorite Hogan Wrestlemania Match.
A match filled with emotion, that saw the Miss Elizabeth character walk out on Savage, and Savage take the legdrop of his career. Sure it wasn’t a win, but Randy was THE STAR when all was said and done. A simply awesome memory from my childhood, and a match that all wrestling fans should check out if they haven’t already.
Forgive me for thinking this is funny. I cant stop giggling like a toddler saying the word boobies. I mean with all this talk of Rapture & the passing of The Macho Man, the internet didn’t miss a beat combining both.
Brain: “You know, if you wanna be fair to Flair, you gotta be fair and say that’s a heck of a robe. Only a man as fair as Flair would show up at Wrestlemania…”
Gorilla: “WILL YOU STOP?!?!?!”
Brain: “What are you talk….don’t yell at me!!”
Monsoon and Heenan were the best commentary team ever in the WWF hands down.
Macho Man is a much better in-ring competitor than most people give him credit for, back in his WWF days.
“You’re seeing but your not observing, you’re looking at the greatest right now!” Savage was out of his mind Savage is the greatest of all time hands down “Ask me another question besides the one you’re about to ask me…” there are so many quotable’s in this
