Randy Savage

Randy Poffo, better known by his ring name Randy Savage, was an American professional wrestler, actor and commentator best known for his time in the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling. His best known nickname was "Macho Man". Savage was described by ESPN's Bill Simmons as "one of the greatest pro wrestlers who lived"—a statement echoed by multiple industry performers, he was recognizable by wrestling fans for his distinctively deep and raspy voice, his flamboyant ring attire, intensity exhibited in and out of the ring, his use of "Pomp and Circumstance" as his entrance music, his signature catch phrase, "Oooh yeah!" For most of his tenures in the WWF and WCW, Savage was managed by his real-life wife, Miss Elizabeth Hulette. Savage had 29 reigns with eleven titles during a 32-year career, including two as WWF World Heavyweight Champion and four as WCW World Heavyweight Champion; as WWF Champion, he held similar drawing power to Hulk Hogan's. A one-time WWF Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion, he was named by WWE as the greatest titleholder of all time and was credited for bringing "a higher level of credibility to the title through his amazing in-ring performances".

Savage was the 1987 WWF King of the 1995 WCW World War 3 winner. He headlined many pay-per-view events throughout his career, including WrestleManias IV, V and VIII, four of the first five SummerSlam shows, the 1995 Starrcade, he was inducted into the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame upon its inception in 1996, with a posthumous WWE Hall of Fame induction following in 2015. Randy Poffo was born in Columbus, the eldest son of Judy and Angelo Poffo, his father was Italian his mother was Jewish. Angelo was a well-known wrestler in the 1950s and 1960s, featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not! for his ability to do sit-ups for hours on end. His younger brother is professional wrestler Lanny Poffo, he lived in Zanesville, where he attended Grover Cleveland Middle School. He graduated from Downers Grove North High School in Illinois, he moved to Staten Island, New York, before moving to Lexington, where he lived for many years. Savage was an alumnus of Southern Illinois University–Carbondale. Savage was signed by the St. Louis Cardinals organization as a catcher out of high school.

He was placed in the minor leagues to develop, where he played as an outfielder in the St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds farm systems. Savage was 18. Savage would swing a bat into a hanging car tire as a regular training exercise in order to strengthen his hands and make sure he utilized his legs during swings; the technique was so effective that Herndon adopted it and used it during his own career as a baseball coach. Savage injured his natural throwing shoulder after a collision at home plate, he learned to throw with his left arm instead. Savage's last season was 1974, he played 289 games in batting.254 with 16 home runs and 66 RBIs. Savage first broke into the wrestling business in 1973 during the fall and winter of the baseball off season, his first wrestling character, The Spider, was similar to Spider-Man. He took the ring name Randy Savage at the suggestion of his longtime friend and trainer Terry "The Goose" Stephens and Georgia Championship Wrestling booker Ole Anderson, who said that the name Poffo did not fit someone who "wrestled like a savage".

The "Macho Man" nickname was adopted after his mother Judy Poffo read a Reader's Digest article predicting that the phrase would become "the next hot term". Savage decided to end his baseball career and become a full-time wrestler, working with his brother and father, he wrestled his first match against Midwest Territory wrestler "Golden Boy" Paul Christy. Savage worked with his father and brother in Michigan, the Carolinas, the Maritimes, 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 promotion in the mid-American states. ICW disbanded and Randy and Lanny entered the Memphis scene, joining Jerry Lawler's Continental Wrestling Association. While there, Savage feuded with Lawler over the AWA Southern Heavyweight Championship, he teamed with Lanny to battle The Rock'n' Roll Express. In 1984, Savage turned babyface and allied with Lawler against Jimmy Hart's First Family alliance, only to turn heel on Lawler again in early 1985 and resume the feud with him over the title.

This ended when Lawler beat Savage in a Loser Leaves Town match on June 7 in Tennessee. In June 1985, Savage signed with Vince McMahon. Billed as "the top free agent in pro wrestling", Savage's first appearances on Tuesday Night Titans featured several established managers offering their services to Savage, he declined their offers and chose Miss Elizabeth as his new manager.
