Former WWE/WCW Champion “Macho Man” Randy Savage is one of the most famous names in the history of the wrestling industry. Unfortunately, his relationship ended with the then-WWE in 1994 and things seemed amicable at the time. He even got a proper sendoff from Vince McMahon during an episode of Monday Night Raw with McMahon wishing Savage luck.

Savage jumped to WCW in December 1994 and spent 5+ years with them. There were shots taken back and forth between WCW and WWE during the Monday Night War era and WWE aired skits making fun of Savage and Hulk Hogan’s age and criticized WCW for relying on older stars while WWE was using younger talent. Savage’s brother revealed many years later that those skits bothered Savage.

There have been unconfirmed rumors about Savage and WWE’s relationship and many have speculated that Vince McMahon finding out about an alleged relationship with a young Stephanie McMahon could have caused WWE to erase Savage from history. Unfortunately, Savage and WWE never reconciled before he passed away in 2011.

WWE posthumously inducted him into their Hall of Fame in 2015.
