As Great As He Ever Was,
This review is from: WWE: Macho Madness - The Randy Savage Ultimate Collection (DVD)
I'm only through the first disc, but it's enough to recommend. The opening montage alone was giving me goose bumps. Savage is treated with respect and admiration by the DVD presentation, as well as the hosts, Striker and Maria.
To see his WWF debut against Rick MacGraw, and hear how much the fans reacted to him... well, some guys just have that "it" factor, but you see the hard work he put into his persona pays dividends.
And this is the second cage match I've seen of his where a fan climbs on to the cage to get involved and try to sway the outcome for the hero! The first was back in the Coliseum Video days, and I believe Savage was the heel and the crowd was determined he would not be the victor. Not since wrestling's golden age did a performer so incite the fans that cheering wasn't enough, and they felt compelled to take action - in this case, to save Macho from DiBiase and Virgil.
And it's always wonderful to hear Gorilla on commentary, especially paired with Jesse.
I had the good fortune to attend a recent Smackdown taping, and as nuts as the arena went for Jeff Hardy, John Cena, Big Show and Batista, and seethed against Randy Orton and Chris Jericho - when you see Hogan and Savage in that ring, and hear the insanity they spun the crowd into, I don't think the WWE was ever bigger. What a moment.
