Randy Macho Man Savage Vs Ric Flair Wrestlemania 8
This match was the first time that NWA veteran Ric Flair, would appear at the WWF’s showpiece event. The build up to this match was fantastic. The Nature Boy having made claims about a previous relationship with Macho’s then wife and manager, Miss Elizabeth.
This would also be the first time that the WWF championship was contested outside of the main event, making way for the dire Sid Justice vs Hulk Hogan, in what was billed as Hogan’s WWE swansong.
The match was very dramatic and fluid as you would expect featuring two of the greatest in ring performers of all time, Flair focused on the leg of Savage and there was plenty of outside interference from the Nature Boy’s consultant, Mr Perfect and Savage utilising his trade mark top rope manouvers.
The end came when Savage rolled up Flair with a massive handful of tights to take his 2nd WWF championship. This being quite ironic, considering that Ric Flair is known as the dirtiest player in the game.
