Mr Main Events Top 10: Number 6

Macho Man Randy Savage vs The Ultimate Warrior retirement match.  WrestleMania VII


In my opinion, this was the best match of the Ultimate Warrior's career. Savage for years has had the best match on the WrestleMania card and WrestleMania VII would be no different. In a time in which the country was dealing with a war, the focal point of this WrestleMania was on the main event between Hogan and Slaughter. But for this match, the experts could not decide who would win this match. 

For the first time in his WWE career, The Ultimate Warrior would walk to the ring. Would this be his last battle? The back of his jacket had a picture of the WWE Championship and it read "It's Bigger Than This." Did he feel that maybe he could not beat Savage. Throughout the match Savage displayed a great deal of athleticism. The highlight of the match was when he delivered not one but four flying elbows and he still could not beat him. After the Warrior defeated Savage, the story could have ended right here and everyone would have been satisfied. But after Queen Sensational Sheri attack Savage his former manager Elizabeth came to his rescue and the two were reunited and instantly Savage was a face again. Talk about a story well written.  Dare say this was the match of the night.
