From bad to good: 10 unforgettable changes of heart

"Macho Man" Randy Savage

After Randy Savage replaced Miss Elizabeth with the terrifying Sherri in the fallout from his big loss to Hulk Hogan, “Macho Man” went from being an overbearing egomaniac to just plain vicious. The “Macho King,” as he came to be known, was a ruthless ruler who forced broadcasters to bow in his presence, degraded “Common Man” Dusty Rhodes and unleashed a cowardly attack on The Ultimate Warrior.

That all changed when Warrior defeated Savage in a Retirement Match at WrestleMania VII. Elizabeth, who had been watching from the crowd, couldn’t bear to see her former beau be attacked by a frustrated Sherri. The First Lady of Professional Wrestling ran to the ring, rid it of the face painted witch and revived a dazed Savage. The victim slowly stood and stared into the eyes of his former love. Finally, they embraced and the WWE Universe exploded. In an iconic moment, Savage hoisted Elizabeth on his shoulder. Once again, “Macho” was her hero, but, more importantly, he was ours.
