Macho Man: The Randy Savage Story

Finally the WWE have put together a stellar package to honour one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.  There was a DVD set released a few years back which was okay, but wasn’t good enough to respect the legacy of this great man.  Now WWE have released a package worthy of him.

There are three discs in the package with disc one comprising of a documentary detiling the life and times of Savage. The other two discs are packed with matches of serious historical importance.  The blu-ray gets more matches and some extra stories and interviews.

The matches include title defences against the likes of Bad News Brown, Bruno Sammartino and The Ultimate Warrior in their Summerslam 1992 match at Wembley Stadium.  Also are a few matches from his WCW stint including bouts against DDP and Ric Flair.

The documentary is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best WWE have done.  The Paul Heyman  one was good, but this one is first class.  Savage’s school friends are interviewed, we meet his Mother and his brother Lanny Poffo aka The Genius who is interviewed extensively.  Lanny shows that he truly loved his brother and shares many memories all of them priceless.  Savage’s beginnings are shown, his WWF run and finally onto WCW.  His marriage to Miss Elizabeth is discussed as is his departure from the WWF and the infamous ‘Nacho Man’ character.  We all unfortunately know the ending but we get to know that Randy had found happiness and passed away a contented man.

Possibly the most essential wrestling release I will ever watch, truly magnificent.
