• Hulk Hogan Recalls Having A Fight With Randy Savage Over Miss Elizabeth
During a recent appearance on the Steve Austin Show podcast, WWE Hall of Famer “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan talked about having a fight with “Macho Man” Randy Savage over Miss Elizabeth.
Below is what Hogan said:
“When I first met Randy, man, he was the best at everything. I loved working with him. The only really b*tch we had was in Paris, France one night.
Elizabeth [Savage’s wife at the time] was my manager, and we went to the ring in Paris. There were no steps. Elizabeth was probably 95 or 100 pounds soaking wet. So, I reached over the top rope – reached all the way over where she’s standing next to me – and grabbed her by the armpits, picked her all the way up – she had a dress on – and put her in the ring.
[Randy said,] ‘You son of a b*tch you grabbed her b00bs’. We walk up and he grabs a headlock on me, but he puts that side headlock on me.
I’m hanging in – I’m hanging in there – and I didn’t want my eyeball to pop out, so I grab his waist and I squeezed. ‘Randy, if you don’t let go, I’m going to dump you on your head.’ He was so pi$$ed at me.
The match sucked. We had a horrible match. We went back to the dressing room in Paris, and I walked in. I said, ‘Randy, we need to talk right now.’ I reached to open the door, and when I pulled the door, I ripped it off the hinges. The door was so old and so rotted by termites.
So, me and Randy went in the back and [he said] ‘Hey, man, I’m sorry I got mad.’ I said, ‘Randy, I’m sorry too. I didn’t mean to touch her inappropriately – there were no steps.’
But I think the door is the thing that kind of cooled everything down, it was hanging on by a thread.”
