Normally I would give an introduction to "Macho Man" Randy Savage but there's nothing I can say about him that hasn't already been said about him to the point where WWE didn't go out of their way to promote & acknowledge him yet he's still remembered as one of the biggest names in wrestling history despite that. Now it should be noted that Savage & WWE haven't been on good terms with each other since he left in 1995 & had no participation in this set leading to Matt Striker & Maria hosting this DVD & did get a little annoying at times but showed they were actual fans of both Randy Savage & Elizabeth giving us some background & facts about them throughout the presentation.
vs. Rick McGraw - This was Randy's debut match here that showcased how Savage just had that natural charisma that separates a wrestler from a superstar as you saw a fan showcase just how much natural heat Savage had within' the first 5 mins.
"Prime Time Wrestling" July '85
vs. Ricky Steamboat - This was more of a mini-preview of their future classic match at WrestleMania as this was past paced & both men worked well with each other with Randy using various dirty tactics such as using Liz & attacking from either behind to take advantage while Steamboat would come back heavily working over Savage's arm with stretches & strikes along with taking advantage of the environment around the ring.
"Boston Garden" Dec. '85

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.
Freak Out... Freak Out for only $10.00
...and yes, the snake that bit him may have made him ill for a few days, but the snake died after... wow, that's one Macho Man
So needless to say when I heard that the Macho Man Randy Savage had passed away, I had to pick up his Greatest Matches dvd. I had too.
Now for the review:
The GOOD: This dvd covers all of Macho Man's greatest matches from his career. You can relive every Macho moment because it's all here. They also included the Miss Elizabeth and Macho Man's Match Made in Heaven (wedding). It also has Macho Man's debut match which I thought was very interesting since I've never seen it before.
The Bad: The two hosts of the DVD don't really give much feedback on Macho Man's legacy, they pretty much just offer small facts which is disappointing. However everyone knows Mach would not be doing a documentary about his wrestling career if it involved Vince and the WWE. I'm just happy they were able to include his matches from WCW and WWE in this package.
The AMAZING: The DVD literally starts from the beginning of Macho's Career to his final days at WCW. You truly get a the Cream of the Crop when it comes to match quality.
Again the only disappointment was the lack of having Macho Man in the dvd, giving back stories, ect.. But seriously... I'm ok with that since most of the wrestling dvds that are coming out are all Documentaries and lack the quality of matches.
If you pick it up you won't be disappointed.
