George “The Animal” Steele On Why Randy Savage Isn’t In The WWE Hall of Fame

WWE Hall of Famer George “The Animal” Steele, a former colleague of “Macho Man” Randy Savage, appeared on Busted Open with Doug Mortman and Dave LaGreca, which airs Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Sirius 92 and XM 207. During the interview appearance, he gave his opinion on why Savage has not been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

“That’s been said a lot of different ways, and there’s been a lot of different things said that are not true necessarily,” Steele said.

“I think that what happened with Randy, when his career was winding down with the WWF, Vince McMahon just loved Randy. After all everything Randy had done and he took him under his wing, and he wanted Randy after the ring was over with for him, he wanted him to be our spokesperson. He was traveling with Vince all the time. Randy was almost like a son, they were really tight. And then one day, we were at a TV meeting, and we got word that Randy, without calling Vince, had left and jumped to the WCW. I had never seen Vince McMahon broken before, he was crushed. It hurt him big time and I don’t think he ever got over that. I think that’s the real problem to be honest with you.

“I heard all this other stuff that I think is garbage when it comes to Randy and relationships with daughters and all that stuff… I don’t think that’s anywhere’s close to the truth.”

    I love Macho Man Randy Savage and I do believe he will be in the WWE Hall of Fame at WM 28. Yeah it is way to late for me he should have gone in long before Stone Cold and Bret Hart because he did so much for the Wrestling World long before Bret and Stone Cold. It is long over due an he will be in the Hall of Fame this year. To me Macho Man was one of the best of all time.

    Kids need a superhero figure to look up to. In the 80’s it was Hulk Hogan. Today it’s John Cena. He’s a company guy. And shifts a ton of merchandise. That’s what they want. So he’s going to get the invincible gimick. Can you blame them for putting the person most over with their target market in the franchise player position?

    @Dave—No, he’s not. If he were, we wouldn’t be having SuperCena shoved down our throats every single week.

    Wrestlemania coming from Miami next year. What better time to induct the legend from just down the road in Sarasota? Are you listening Vince?

    Nobody even knows about Macho Man’s run with TNA because nobody cares about TNA. Macho Man was remembered for his great matches in WWF and WCW.

    @keylo…..i sure thats the reason huh…you must have some insider info no one knows about dont you….you little punk kid

  • keylo

    Bah, others have done worse and he still took them back,like waste of space Hall,Hardy,Diesel, he banged daddy’s little bottom feeding, leg opening, trash bag whore and that is the reason. Anyway it would soil the name of the true GREAT ONE Macho Man if he were to be put in that joke HOF

  • muh boy

    all that doesnt matter. his last match was with tna so vince wont have him anywhere near the hall of fame. not that the hof means much anyway.
