Macho Man Randy Savage: Unique Madness

At Bash at the Beach 1996. Hulk Hogan would turn on Macho Man and align with Scot Hall and Kevin Nash, officially becoming a heel for the first time in his career. After the formation of the NWO, Randy Savage would be one of their biggest Rivals. After calling out Hogan for months, Savage would finally get his shot at Hogan and the WCW Championship at Halloween Havoc 1996. Unfortunately for Savage, The Giant (Big Show) interfered in the match, allowing Hogan to get the win. Savage would briefly leave WCW after Halloween Havoc, but would return on January 20th 1997 on Monday Nitro. He would continue his feud with the NWO, until finally joining them at SuperBrawl VII. As talented as Savage was, and as impactful as the NWO was, having him join them was the wrong move, at at the time. Before joining, Savage was allies with the likes of Roddy Piper, Lex Luger, and Sting. They had enough star power to realistically rival the NWO had they been booked in a real feud. Instead the NWO was continuously booked to either demolish or absorb any WCW stars that could be a threat to them. When Savage joined them, it left Sting as the only legitimate stand alone superstar that could rival the NWO. Had WCW kept him and Savage together longer and actually let them get the upper hand on the NWO once in a while, then the eventual turn would’ve meant more. They would’ve also gotten a Randy Savage vs. Sting feud out of it, but they rushed it. Savage’s jump to the NWO wasn’t all bad though. It gave him the opportunity put the stamp of approval on one of WCW‘s few homegrown stars.
