It's no great surprise that when WWF officials wanted someone to put one of their stars over, they went to Randy Savage.
After his outstanding performance against Hogan at WrestleMania 5, they turned to Savage again two years later when they asked him to put over another limited worker in the Ultimate Warrior.
Macho was no longer aligned with his wife Elizabeth at this point, as he was managed by Sensational Sherri.
Heading into the event, Warrior had refused to give Savage a shot at his WWF Title. Warrior chose to give the returning Sgt. Slaughter a title match at Royal Rumble instead.
Savage interfered and cost Warrior the title. Warrior then challenged Savage to a "retirement match" instead, which Savage accepted, and here we are.
The match followed pretty much the same formula as Savage/Hogan two years before. Savage dominated proceedings.
He managed to nail Warrior with five flying elbow drops, but couldn't get the job done and Warrior ultimately (haha!) won the match.
As memorable as this match is, it's the aftermath that sticks in the minds of wrestling fans. This was the the site of the "Macho Moment."
During the match between Savage and the Warrior, Elizabeth was spotted in the crowd and cameras kept cutting to her as she grew concerned for Savage's well being.
After the match, Sherri came into the ring and attacked Savage, which prompted Elizabeth to charge into the ring and fight off the former Queen and save Savage.
Shocked to see what Elizabeth had done for him, Savage had an emotional reunion with his former wife, which made the Macho Man a hero in the eyes of the fans again.
Again, Macho Man Randy Savage delivered at WrestleMania, despite losing the match.
