Movie Reviews

Shawn Connolly | 03/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"He was one of the most controversial superstars in history of sports entertainment, through his complicated relationship with Miss Elizabeth, his dramatic WWE championship tournament run at WrestleMania IV, the formation and explosive breakup of the MegaPowers with Hulk Hogan, his reign as the Macho King, and his shocking jump to WCW. "Macho Man" Randy Savage brought a chaotic poetry to the ring. He's widely considered one of the finest in-ring competitors of all time, and his interviews were always a sight to behold. For the first time ever, fans can relive the entire storied career in Macho Madness: The Ultimate Randy Savage Collection, a 3-DVD set that spans two decades of exciting and intense matchups.

"Normally I would give an introduction to "Macho Man" Randy Savage but there's nothing I can say about him that hasn't already been said about him to the point where WWE doesn't go out of their way to promote & acknowledge him yet he's still remembered as one of the biggest names in wrestling history despite that. Now based off reading other's reviews first, somethings need to be understood before thinking about purchasing this DVD. Randy Savage & WWE haven't been on good terms with each other in almost 15 years since he left for WCW (with the exception of one interview in WWE magazine back in 2003) so you can't expect Randy Savage to give commentary to his career on this set. Also anyone who knows how WWE operates when it comes to a DVD documentry, all you have to do is watch the DVD sets of Ultimate Warrior & Monday Night War to see that WWE will rewrite history to bury you if you aren't on good terms with the company so be happy they didn't do one here. Matt Striker & Maria host this DVD & eventhough they can get annoying at times, it's nice that those who were actual fans of Randy Savage & Elizabeth did this set as...again, knowing the situation between Savage & shouldn't expect this DVD to get the Eddie Guerrero/Hulk Hogan treatment of superstars talking about their favorite Savage moments. You need to take all of this into concideration before even thinking about buying this DVD set..

Matches Include:
WWE Debut vs. Rick McGraw - This was Randy's debut match here that showcased how Savage just had that natural charisma that seperates a wrestler from a superstar as you saw a fan showcase just how much natural heat Savage had within' the first 5 mins.
("Prime Time Wrestling" July '85)

vs. Ricky Steamboat - This was more of a mini-preview of their future classic match at WrestleMania as this was past paced & both men worked well with each other.
("Boston Garden" Dec. '85)

vs. WWE Champion Hulk Hogan - As Striker would point out before the match, Savage was main eventing Madison Square Garden & engaged in a feud against the WWE Champion within' 6 months of this WWE career...that's saying something. The match itself was a short match & nothing special past the historical factor of where Savage's career was at that time.
("Madison Square Garden" Dec. '85)

vs. Intercontinental Champion Tito Santana - The beginning push to the top for the "Macho Man" as as you saw how good of a workers both Savage & Tito were at this time. Great solid wrestling match between two great workers.
("Boston Garden" Feb. '86)
[Also available on "History Of Intercontinental Championship"]

Intercontinental Championship Match vs. Bruno Sammartino - A short match that was nothing really special.
("Boston Garden" Jan. '87)

Intercontinental Championship Match vs. Ricky Steamboat - Let's be honest here, I can try to summerize this match but words wouldn't do it justice & what hasn't been said about this match that hasn't been said for over 20 years. This was the match that stole the show at WrestleMania III, this was the match that was an inspiration to so many wrestlers today like Chris Jericho, and is still known as one of the greatest matches of all time.
(WrestleMania III)
[Also available on "History Of Intercontinental Championship" & "WrestleMania III: Championship Edition"]

Randy Savage vs. Intercontinental Champion Honky Tonk Man - This was the conclusion of the feud that turned Randy Savage babyface & actually formed the "Mega Powers" team with Hulk Hogan. This wasn't the wrestling quality that you got on their Saturday Night's Main Event match months earlier (which was on the SNME DVD) but was a very entertaining match between both men.
("The Main Event" Feb. '88)

WWE Championship Tournament Final vs. Ted DiBiase - Why it took so long for this historic match to come to DVD, I'll never know but anyways this was the finals of the first WWE Championship tournament. Andre The Giant was in Dibiase's corner while Savage had Elizabeth & later Hulk Hogan in his corner and this was one of those matches that was more about setting up future storylines & taking into concideration that Dibiase & Savage wrestled multiple matches before this one, this was still a good quality match between both good that current WWE stars like the Matt & Jeff Hardy reference this match when talking about being wrestling fans as kids.
(WrestleMania IV)

WWE Championship/Steel Cage Match vs. Ted DiBiase - This was the better quality match between the two as they went out there & wrestled without the other involvement from those like Hogan & Andre. It wasn't a bloody violent cage match but still a good quality encounter...and watch out for the end when a fan completely unexpected got involved towards the end.
("Madison Square Garden" June '88)

w/Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant & Ted DiBiase - The first main event at the first SummerSlam...and for those trivia fans, the first of two times Jesse Ventura would be a special guest referee at SummerSlam. All four men worked well together here in what was a really fun tag team match here but this match is mostly remembered for what Ms. Elizabeth did that caused most fans to react the same way those in the ring did.
(SummerSlam '88)

WWE Championship Match vs. Hulk Hogan -This was subtitled as "The Mega Powers Explode." With the workhorse Randy Savage was and how Hogan knew what to do to get the crowd to react to everything he does made for awesome match with inring storytelling that you rarely see in Hogan's matches. Hulk would say later that this was one of the most hardest fought WWE Championship matches and for that era of wrestling, it was.
(WrestleMania V)
[Also available on "Hulk Hogan: Ultimate Anthology"]

vs. WWE Champion Hulk Hogan - This was the conclusion of their long feud between each other with the special referee being the then-boxing champion James "Buster" Douglas who was a last minute replacement for former champion Mike Tyson (boy, he really milked those 15 mins. of fame didn't he?). The match itself was similar to the Savage/Honky match in that he wasn't as great of match quality as their previous televised encounter (WM5 in this case) but was still an entertaining match between both men with Sherri showcasing why she was the perfect compliment to the "Macho King" as Elizabeth was to the "Macho Man."
("The Main Event" Mar. '90)

w/Sherri vs. Dusty Rhodes & Sapphire - We all know how great of a inring workhouse Randy Savage was throughout his career but this match was more about showcasing his "entertaining side" as this was one of those matches that if you took it for what it was, you'll enjoy it. This was a fun mixed tag match with some very comical moments but also a solid inring performance from both Dusty & Savage.
(WrestleMania VI)
[Also available on "The American Dream: The Dusty Rhodes Story"]

Retirement Match vs. Ultimate Warrior - Without a doubt, Ultimate Warrior's greatest opposition was always Randy Savage & this match is the perfect example as he gave Warrior one of the greatest matches (if not THE greatest match) in his career. This was back in the day when wrestling was still "kayfabe" so you were on the edge of your seat for over 20 mins. not knowing who was going to leave since you really couldn't see either guy away from WWE at that time. The match itself is ine of the top quality matches on this set & in both men's careers but the most memorable moment here is what happened afterwards that led to my personal favorite WrestleMania moment of all time to this day & one of the most emotional moments in wrestling history to the point where people forgot about the match that only happened minutes earlier and you saw the fans in the arena crying tears of joy.
(WrestleMania VII)
[Also available on "Self Destruction Of The Ultimate Warrior"]

vs. Jake Roberts - This was a short match that was non-stop action & intense from start to finish but this was one of those matches that was more about "setting up a storyline" than inring quality here as the aftermath was more memorable than the match itself. Unfortunally, this DVD didn't show the most memorable moment of this encounter of Jake Roberts slapping Elizabeth across the face which made this come off as a dud to me & their match from Saturday Night's Main Event months later would have been a better choice here.
(This Tuesday in Texas '91)

vs. WWE Champion Ric Flair - Savage had a reputation for being one of the wildest men in wrestling & this match was classic "Macho Man" Randy Savage in that regards as it was wild & non-stop action from start to finish & even after the bell. They fought in the ring, out the ring, Flair heavily bleeding and Mr. Perfect, Ms. Elizabeth, and tons of the WWE backstage officials getting involved here with an ending that really made you ask "Who's REALLY the dirtiest player in the game?" in this classic match.
(WrestleMania VIII)

WWE Championship Match vs. Shawn Michaels - This was a rare match back when Shawn Michaels was just a few months into his singles run but by watching the quality performance here, you would think this was the "Showstopper, Icon, Main Event" Shawn Michaels he would later be known for. They two vibed off each other well here in a very competitve match that went close to 20 mins. with both Elizabeth & Sherri getting into the action at one point or another. Makes you wonder why they didn't more with each other after this as this was a lost classic in my eyes & one of the best matches on this set.
("European Rampage" Apr. '92)

w/Bret Hart vs. Ric Flair & Shawn Michaels - This was a good back & forth tag team match between all four men and for those who pay attention to these things, you'll notice that Jim Ross is doing the commentary for this match that happened a year before he actually debuted in WWE.
(July '92)

vs. WWE Champion Yokozuna - Maybe it's because I was never that big of a fan of Yokozuna but this was just a real average but forgettable match here which the purpose was to continue the setup towards both men's matches leading into WrestleMania.
("RAW" Feb. '94)

Lifeguard Match vs. Ric Flair - This was just a glorified "Lumberjack" match that was both a good match with Savage taking some hard bumps to the outside but also had it's entertaining moments that you would expect from a lumberjack match.
(Bash At The Beach '95)

vs. WCW Champion Ric Flair - This was a short & average but entertaining match here memorable for Randy Savage winning his second WCW Championship.
("Monday Nitro" Jan. '96)

Falls Count Anywhere Match vs. Diamond Dallas Page - This was during Randy Savage's run as a member of the nWo & in my opinion, the best feud in Savage's WCW career as he elevated DDP from a midcarder to main eventer overnight during this feud & this was one of the wildest matches during this era of WCW as they did exactly what you would expect with this type of match, they brawled all over the place from the ring to the floor to the audience to the stage area to even a V.I.P. picnic area (you read that right). One of the best wild & craziest brawls during this era of WCW.
(Great American Bash '97)

w/ Sid Vicious vs. WCW Champion Kevin Nash & Sting - This match represented the last incarnation of Randy Savage when he was the leader of Team Madness...which was probably his worst run of his career outside of his one month in TNA. The main event heavily showcased the big problem that has always existed in WCW...illogical booking as the rule here is that anyone, including his partner Sting, who pins Nash will become the WCW Champion...but for Sting to be legal in the match, Nash would have to tag out which would then make Nash the illegal man so how could Sting win the title from Nash in the first place? Anyways, this match is only memorable for Randy Savage once again winning the WCW Championship but past that, this was really forgettable it says something when his match a month later against Dennis Rodman of all people was tons better & his best match during this run of his career.
(Bash At The Beach '99)

DVD extras include tons of past Savage interviews & promos along with various Savage moments like him debuting Elizabeth as his manger, him being crowned the "Macho King." Another DVD extra is the "Match Made In Heaven" wedding from SummerSlam '91 between Savage & Elizabeth with unlike all weddings in WWF/E today where they end up having a storyline twist to them, this didn't & came off very classy so that Savage & Elizabeth (who were married in real life) can now acknowledge in public that they are married. This was one of the most (if not THE MOST) classiest moments in the history of the company.

In the end, I'm glad some of stages in Savage's career were completely ignored (his tag team with Zues & WCW feuds with Dungeon Of Doom & 3 Faces Of Fear and let's not mention that rap album) but also I felt so much was left out in favor of unimportant non-quality filler matches such as the Yokozuna match shouldn't have replaced his WrestleMania 10 match against Crush...if we can get multiple matches against Flair & Hogan & Dibiase then we should have gotten the Saturday Night's Main Event (and better) match in the feud against Jake Roberts and we could have gotten the first match in the DDP feud or Savage's title defence against Warrior at SummerSlam '92 just to name a few. Also a few of the bonus interviews got repeative & could have been left out in favor of some better ones like the time Mean Gene visiting Randy Savage & Elizabeth's home for their "Randy & Liz" VHS tape or one of Savage's interview appearences from TNT (the one where Alfred Hayes did an impression of Savage would have been gold here). In the end this wasn't an "Ultimate Collection" but still a nice retrospective of Randy Savage's career that I would recommend for any Randy Savage fan but I would also recommend "Best Of Saturday Night's Main Event" with this as a complimentry piece because that's where you get the better quality matches against some of the wrestlers featured on here such as Honky Tonk Man, Jake Roberts, Ted Dibiase along with other matches against people Andre The Giant, with Hogan vs. Twin Towers, and a high quality encounter against Bret Hart.

As Great As He Ever Was
Stephen R. Sonneveld | Los Angeles, CA | 06/12/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm only through the first disc, but it's enough to recommend. The opening montage alone was giving me goose bumps. Savage is treated with respect and admiration by the DVD presentation, as well as the hosts, Striker and Maria.

To see his WWF debut against Rick MacGraw, and hear how much the fans reacted to him... well, some guys just have that "it" factor, but you see the hard work he put into his persona pays dividends.

And this is the second cage match I've seen of his where a fan climbs on to the cage to get involved and try to sway the outcome for the hero! The first was back in the Coliseum Video days, and I believe Savage was the heel and the crowd was determined he would not be the victor. Not since wrestling's golden age did a performer so incite the fans that cheering wasn't enough, and they felt compelled to take action - in this case, to save Macho from DiBiase and Virgil.

And it's always wonderful to hear Gorilla on commentary, especially paired with Jesse.

I had the good fortune to attend a recent Smackdown taping, and as nuts as the arena went for Jeff Hardy, John Cena, Big Show and Batista, and seethed against Randy Orton and Chris Jericho - when you see Hogan and Savage in that ring, and hear the insanity they spun the crowd into, I don't think the WWE was ever bigger. What a moment.

A good start
Jesse | USA | 06/23/2009

"The first thing I noticed about this DVD set when I opened it up is that they really did a top rate job putting it together. The layout, artwork, etc, does Macho Man justice and shows me that there was no conspiracy to make this a bad DVD set to exact revenge on Macho Man. The DVD packaging looks great, the DVD's are packed full of matches, and the presentation of each DVD, the menu options, etc, are all very good.

My only major complaint concerning Macho Madness is one I have for all the WWE DVD sets, and that's simply that I wish they would include more discs. I'd be willing to pay more to get more. I felt the same way about the Road Warriors DVD pack, which only included 2 discs (I would have paid triple the price to get a 6 disc collection,) and Hogan's 3 disc set (luckily I got the special addition with 4 discs, but still felt that Hogan's career set could easily be 5-8 discs.) This is a complaint I'm sure most people can't give much weight to, because most consumers are probably happier spending less and having a tighter package.

When it comes to wrestling though, I'm a completist. But Macho Madness comes pretty close. Considering its the same size as the typical Hogan set, I think they really did make a geniune effort to please the fan here. I was happy with many of the matches included here but felt that they could have included more of his WCW career. Particularly Macho Man VS. Dennis Rodman at Hogwild. That match was hilarious. I also think it would've been cool to have the WCW Saturday Night match where Macho Man, Sting, and Lex Luger teamed up against 3 jobbers essentially to show off their talents and promote the ppv which would occur the next day. We all know what happened at Bash at the Beach, when Hogan turned heel. But the moments leading up to it, in retrospect, feel equally nostalgic for me.

I don't like Maria's commentary. But I disagree that she was picked on purpose to do a bad job. Everything here seems to be pretty top rate and I doubt they would have put this much effort into a package and then purposely disgrace it. I think she just didn't do so great of a job being a commentator.

When I bought this DVD it wasn't just cause I wanted this DVD, its also because I'm really hoping if people buy this one up it will let McMahon and WWE know the potential sales behind the Macho Man franchise and will be open to more merchandising, DVDs, Videogames (maybe legends of wrestlemania 2) etc which include him. This DVD is selling well so lets keep our fingers crossed for an even bigger box set, as well as him being included in more compilations (like how he was included in WWE Best of Saturday Night) and maybe we can also get him in the next legends videogame."
