Randy Savage

   Randy 'Macho Man' Savage was an icon as far as professional wrestlers  wouls go,best known for his time with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW). He also had a short run with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). Savage held twenty championships during his professional wrestling career and is a seven-time world champion: a two-time WWF Champion, four-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and one-time USWA Unified World Heavyweight Champion. Also a one-time WWF Intercontinental Champion, WWE has named Savage the greatest Intercontinental champion of all time and credited him for bringing "a higher level of credibility to the title through his amazing in-ring performances." Aside from championships, Savage is the 1987 WWF King of the Ring and the 1995 WCW World War 3 winner. For much of his tenures in the WWF and WCW, he was managed by his real life wife, "Miss Elizabeth" Hulette. Savage was recognizable by wrestling fans for his distinctively deep and raspy voice, his ring attire (often glitzy sunglasses, a bandana or head band, flashy robes, and a cowboy hat intensity exhibited in and out of the ring, and his signature catch phrase ("Ooh yeah!"),which was borrowed from Pampero Firpo by his own admission..   "

Though Savage and Elizabeth would be "married" on WWF tv, they had actually been wed for several years. The two woild  divorce, but work together for a program in WCW.  

Savage passed away a few years ago form a fatal heart atatck whiled riving, ending with hsi car running into a tree.  

Savage made his debut in Phoenix against an unplanned opponent when Billy Anderson was thrown in to replace someone else who never made it to the arena. Savage, predictably, won with his signature flying elbow.  

He would appear in Arizona numerous times after this for both the WWF and WCW.
