  • OOOOOH YEAAAAAAHHHHHH! Another legend I grew up watching.....

    10
    A former Intercontinental champion, a 2 time WWF champion, multi-time WCW champion, Randy Savage was one of the most charismatic wrestlers to grace the WWF ring. He brought skills that not many younger guys can surpass, a wicked entrance music, the best finisher of that generation as well as one of the most well known catchphrases of all time.



    He provided us with tons of memorable matches with Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat (the most memorable of them all), among other legends. One other key factor is that he was the one of the only wrestlers who did a top rope move as his finisher. That being, the Flying Elbow. NO ONE can do a flying elbow better than him.



    Hopefully, one day, he will be inducted to the Hall of Fame, where he rightfully belongs. OH YEAH!!!!moreless
