Macho Man Randy Savage vs. Jake the Snake Roberts
Back in the day, so to speak, wrestlers lived their character’s lives around the clock. The act never ended, the curtain never fell and the insanity kept right on rolling. Randy Savage, known as the Macho Man, embodied this principle like no other before him, and none have come close since.
The audience actually believed that Macho Man was in love with Elizabeth, his manager. So, when the wedding of the year was taking place between the two, nobody doubted its validity. Yet with that believability came some drawbacks, as Jake the Snake Roberts found out.
Jake gave the couple a poisonous cobra as a wedding present, causing a great deal of chaos at the wedding. It also caused the bride of Macho man Savage to shed some tears. Randy spent the next several years attacking Roberts for what he had done, both in and out of the ring. The two played up this rivalry over the years, but usually, Savage didn’t seem like he was playing a role. Roberts is lucky that he managed to get away when he did, or he might have been snapped like a Slim Jim.
