" Macho Man" Randy Savage: Is He Finally Hall Of Fame Bound?

Matthew HesterSenior Writer IAugust 9, 2010

When the WWE brought back the Hall Of Fame a while back I was a very happy camper. Some may not know this but the WWE HOF was around in the early 90s.

For some reason or other the idea never did stick.

Since its return we have seen Verne Gagne, Bret Hart, the Funks, and many others inducted.

While this is all well and good, it bothered me that one man was never put in.

He was arguably the WWE’s top heel for a very long time. He made guys like Hogan look like champions, and gave his life and body for the business.


The person I am refereeing to is none other than “Macho Man” Randy Savage. During his long career in the WWE and WCW he has taken many titles. He has feuded with the best, and gave us some of the greatest matches in the history of WWE.

Things didn’t end well with Savage unfortunately. He would wrestle a little longer then he probably should have and will have to deal with nagging injuries for the rest of his life.

I thought for sure he would be one of the first; if not the first men to be put in the HOF when it was brought back.

Part of the reason may have stemmed from the Stephanie McMahon rumors that floated around.  Whatever the reason may be though, for years Vince McMahon would refuse to do any business with Randy Savage.

That has all seemed to have changed recently. Last year, Vince and Savage came to an agreement with each other and he is now in the WWE alumni section.

When this happened, rumors of his induction into the HOF swirled around instantly. Things would die down after a while until recently. Randy Savage would sign a contract with WWE for the first time in over a decade. A lot of this has to do with rights for making merchandise.

He will have a new legends action figure coming out in the near future. Who knows, he may even make an appearance on RAW from time to time.

Of course, the questions are being asked again if he will be in the HOF. No one has confirmed or denied anything, but a good source of mine has told me that he will be in this year.

I don’t normally report these sorts of things unless I feel this is true. With last year’s induction on the alumni page and his recent signing, I have no reason to doubt my source on this one.

If it is true, then it is about time this happened. Let’s hope that these two grown men have worked out their differences. He belongs in the HOF; there are no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
