The WWE are taking another shot at telling the story of the late Macho Man Randy Savage. The WWE will be releasing a brand new video documentary in November on the former champion. A new synopsis reveals some of the details of this highly anticipated set.
“OOOOHH YEEAAAH!!! WWE Fans, you have waited long enough!
Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage captivated the sports-entertainment world for over a quarter century. His glistening wardrobe, often-imitated cadence and grandiose style was outshined only by his virtuoso performances in the ring. Macho Man, with his gorgeous leading lady Miss Elizabeth, embodied the raging 80s in WWE and later, compounded his success in WCW.
Now, the complete story of his incredible life can finally be told in Macho Man: The Randy Savage Story. In this 90-minute documentary, get brand new, exclusive commentary from family, friends and his contemporaries as they chronicle his ascent from young baseball phenom through all the pomp and circumstance of his incomparable career. Featuring Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat, Bret ‘Hit Man’ Hart, Ric Flair, Kevin Nash, DDP, His Brother Lanny ‘The Genius’ Poffo and much more!”
This should certainly be an interesting documentary. Savage and the WWE had a falling out several years ago and there are plenty of urban legends as to why that was. One rumor was that the urban legend would be addressed on this release although I have not seen that confirmed anywhere. Keep in mind that this is a WWE DVD and without Savage around to rebut any inaccuracies, you will be getting their version of Macho Man history here. To the WWE’s credit the last documentary release they produced on Warrior was fair and balanced, yet the Warrior was around to participate in the production.
It will be interesting to see if this home video opens the door for a Hall of Fame induction. The Hall of Fame induction is way overdue as Savage remains the most obvious candidate not inducted into the WWE’s Hall. I would suspect that this home video will be a hot holiday item so maybe the WWE follows the momentum up with a Hall of Fame induction.
Savage tragically passed away in 2011 after suffering a heart attack while driving.
