I Don’t know why, but since the breaking news about the break up between John Cena and Nikki Bella have flooded the media, I can’t stop thinking of the greatest love story in the history of sports entertainment. The thoughts, images and emotions I have for over twenty years now about a love-hate-love relationship between “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth. A story that brought tears to the eyes and extra beats to the hearts.
For those who weren’t yet in this world then, I give you these shots:
Miss Elizabeth “manages” the Macho, always with him everywhere.
MachoMan doesn’t seem to treat her the way she deserves, but she’s there for him, always.
A brutal attack from the Honky Tonk Man and the Hart Foundation against MachoMan, and Bam!!! A guitar smashed on the head of Randy Savage.
Where is Elizabeth?! Where did she go?!
OMG!! Elizabeth is back from the locker room, dragging no other than the “Immortal” Hull Hogan, with tears and pleads in her eyes to save her man (If you don’t feel goosebumps by now, you’re sick, see someone!!).
Mega Powers tag team was formed.
Jealousy and doubts from Randy Savage.
The Macho Man and Elizabeth are no longer together ( that’s when I began to plan for coming to the States, as she had become finally free!!).
Savage goes with Sensational Sherry.
Savage loses to the Ultimate Warrior, in a career-ending match.
Sherry can’t take the defeat, and she slams the already battered Savage.
And guess who comes again, to help Savage again, at his weakest, lowest moment again? Yes… Miss Elizabeth. This time by her own hands.
Randy turns around to see her; Elizabeth! Standing there with tears in her eyes. As if she was telling him “I couldn’t hold it back anymore”.
Then, one of the greatest hugs between lovers that anyone had ever witnessed. Full of love, emotions and – ehm ehm – believable.
A lot of tears- including mine- were shed for that scene.
