• The Real Reason Why Randy Savage Left The WWF In 1994

An old IGN Interview of the late great Randy Savage went viral recently, in which he explained in detail why he left the World Wrestling Federation in the fall of 1994 and joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling.

And no, it has nothing to do with the urban internet legend about sleeping with an underage Stephanie McMahon (which has been labeled as fake and untrue by many sources, including his brother Lanny Poffo & Bruce Prichard, among several others).

Here’s what The Macho Man had to say in 2000, while still being under WCW contract:

“They wanted me to do the commentary thing, which I will want to do someday. But I just wasn’t ready to take off my boots at that point. I’m glad I didn’t.

It wasn’t anything but an attitude, or a direction, which the WWF was going, and they proved me to be 100% correct in where they were going, because they had a vision in where they were going.

But at the same time, it didn’t work for me at that time. And I’m glad I made the move that I did, looking back, because I just wasn’t ready to do that. I have to do things because I want to, not because I have to.”

Randy Savage’s last WWF appearance came when he provided color commentary for the October 31, 1994 episode of WWF Monday Night RAW and Vince McMahon announced his departure a week later on November 7th.
