Smackdown was on SyFy tonight...but there was no mention of it....the PPV is Sunday night and then RAW on Monday on USA at 9.

I just posted on the other wrestling thread if you guys think Vince will go all out with a "Macho Man" tribute on RAW this coming Monday. I really do hope WWE finally gives Randy Savage some respect and kudos for everything he did for this business.

I'm hoping for something along the lines of what they presented for Eddie Guerrero. Certainly deserves something more than just a title card.

One of my favorites from the 80s. Had a huge crush on the lovely Elizabeth.

I was a Hogan fan growing up but IMO Savage almost always had the most memorable WM moments. The entire match with Steamboat during WM3, winning the WM4 tourny and the strap, the best heel against Hogan at WM5, defeating Ric Flair at WM8, and of course my favorite WM match/moment ever at WM 7.

He won't get a full on tribute show, but he'll possibly get a video package. Only those who die while under contract tend to get the full show.

The Savage/Warrior match at WM7 was always one of my favorites. Legendary stuff right there.

I think they'll acknowledge his death and give him a 5-10 minute video package but I don't think they'll devote an entire show to him only because this is the RAW following a PPV. I'm hopeful that they'll give him a full tribute show but that's just wishful thinking on my part.

yeah he does, could that be attributed partially to the career ending injury by Bill Goldberg?

I kind of wonder if that messed him up mentally.

That match was epic. Savage gives the Warrior like 7 super elbow drops in a row, but the Warrior kicks out, then the Warrior gorilla presses him, but Savage kicks out. Then for some unknown reason the Warrior starts talking to his hands and decides to leave the ring but Savage pulls him back in and somehow the Warrior ends up winning. Then Sensational Sherry starts kicking the crap out of Savage but Elizabeth comes to his rescue and all is well again between the two lovebirds.

I think they got married at the next Summerslam. The match made in heaven right before the match made in Hell. In real life they'd been married since the mid 80's though.

He was a great entertainer. I always enjoyed his matches. His interviews were as cryptic as the Warrior's but somehow he came off as a little less crazy.

I'm just wondering- does anyone know if there's footage of Savage wrestling in the 70s? The earliest stuff I could find is 1980. His Memphis wrestling stuff with Lanny and Angelo Poffo is legendary. I've been watching a lot of that.

this is the earliest thing I could find:

definitely check out the promo by Randy at the end, wow pretty different than what I'm used to

if anyone knows of anything else it would be cool to see. Macho Man's pre WWF stuff isn't talked about a whole lot.
