• “I don’t think Randy Savage ever, ever, ever, until the day he died, got over Elizabeth” – WWF/WCW Legend
During an episode of his ‘To Be The Man’ podcast, Old School WWF/WCW Legend Ric Flair talked about Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth.
Savage & Elizabeth were married for 8 years, from 1984 till 1992.
Below is what Flair had to say about this legendary WWF couple:
“I don’t think Randy ever, ever, ever, until the day he died, got over Liz.
He had remarried obviously and I understand he was very happy prior to the car wreck and the heart attack and all that, but I don’t think while I knew Randy, and while we were in the business, he ever got over Liz.
That’s a very fair take on my part because I worked with him before, during, and after.”
The Randy Savage that I worked with in the 90s and the Randy that came to WCW were two different people. He was 40 pounds heavier. He just wasn’t the same guy.
I know that he looked great. I’m not taking anything away from his look, but he was probably 35 pounds, at least, heavier than he was in the 90s. That may have been in the 80s when he wrestled Steamboat when they had that classic at WrestleMania. He just wasn’t the same guy.
I just think he loved her so much. I really felt bad for him on a personal note when she came back to WCW. She married a lawyer for a while in Fort Lauderdale, and like so many of us that have been on the road, just got tired of that life.
Then she showed up with Lex (Luger) and I can’t imagine how hard that was for Randy to go to work every day.
I mean, think about it, the love of your life and you gotta look at her every day with somebody else.”
