Savage defined the larger-than-life personalities of the 1980s World Wrestling Federation (now WWE). He wore sequined robes bejeweled with "Macho Man" on the back, rainbow colored cowboy hats and oversized sunglasses, part of a unique look that helped build the WWF into a mainstream phenomenon.

He was both at times the most popular and most hated wrestler in entertainment. His flying elbow off the top rope was mimicked by basement and backyard wrestlers everywhere. Savage made good use of his deep, raspy voice as a corporate pitchman as well, for years ordering Slim Jim fans to "Snap into it!"

Randy was wise with his money so he left the biz and did not need to come back. Hogan resented that and their relationship was strained. They were never good friends just more like business partners. Randy really kept to himself and was very Leary of the politics of pro wrestling and thus kept his friends close and his enimes closer.
