time. Randy Savage’s match against Ricky Steamboat at WrestleMania III is considered to be an all

time classic. His match against The Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania VII is also remembered fondly

to this very day.

World Heavyweight Champion a sum total of four times and was a part of now. While in WCW,

a part of Team Madness, but unfortunately health concerns would prevent him from enjoying a

fulfilling career.

Randy Savage would also have a short lived run in TNA. He showed up at the promotion in 2004 and

confronted Jeff Jarrett. Macho Man would also show up on various TV shows such as Mad About

You, Walker, Texas Ranger as well as Baywatch.

tree. He was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2015. Superstars like Bayley still

pay tribute to Randy Savage with the trademark elbow drop.
