||played 'Macho Man' Randy Savage [S1-S10] in WWE Pay-Per-View
OHHHHHHH YEAH! The Macho Man was one of the most colorful characters in the history of the WWF, and was a cornerstone of the early PPV years for the company. Savage made his PPV debut at The Wrestling Classic, where he came within one match of winning the entire tournament. At WrestleMania II, Savage successfully defended his Intercontinental Championship against George 'The Animal' Steele. Steele had long lusted after Savage's manager Elizabeth, which didn't sit well with the Macho Man. At 1987's WrestleMania III, Savage defended the title against Ricky 'The Dragon' Steamboat in one of the best matches in the history of professional wrestling. While he lost, Randy made his career forever with that performance.
Savage would finally complete his ascension to the top at WrestleMania IV, winning a 16-man tournament for the vacant WWF Championship. He would go on to hold the title for the next calendar year, finally dropping the strap to his former partner Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania V. Savage's feud with Hogan continued for the rest of 1989, but he found a new target in Dusty Rhodes in early 1990. The then 'Macho King' & his manager Queen Sherri battled Dusty and his manager Sapphire at WrestleMania VI, in the WWF's first ever televised mixed tag team match.
1991 saw the Macho Man get desperate, with Sherri practically begging for a shot at then WWF Champion The Ultimate Warrior. Warrior rebuffed her pleas, so Savage cost him the title. The two giants of the sport met at WrestleMania VII, in a match where the loser had to retire. Savage lost, but regained Elizabeth in the process. The couple publicly got married at SummerSlam 1991, but the honeymoon didn't last long. Savage was brutally attacked by the dastardly Jake 'The Snake' Roberts, leading President Jack Tunney to eventually reinstate him as an active wrestler. Savage and Roberts fought at This Tuesday in Texas, with Randy getting the duke.
1992 was Savage's last big year in the WWF. The Macho Man engaged in an epic feud with the 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair over the WWF Championship. Savage won the title at WrestleMania VIII, and would defend it at SummerSlam 1992 in a rematch with the Ultimate Warrior. An injury cost him the gold in a match with Flair, and their feud would continue to the end of the year. Savage spent most of 1993 as an announcer, but he eventually stepped back into the ring to do battle with Crush. Savage's victory in their Falls Count Anywhere fight at WrestleMania X was his last match with the WWF. Savage jumped to WCW from 1994-1999, and had finally started mending fences with the WWE before his untimely death in 2011.
