WWE paid tribute to the late Randy Savage on Raw with an “In Memory of” graphic at the beginning of the show and a video package showcasing his career prior to the evening’s main event.
The package highlighted his legendary match with Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat at WrestleMania III, on-screen relationship with Miss Elizabeth, trademark mannerisms and other career milestones.
Prior to the airing of the video, Jerry Lawler said of the wrestling legend, “Savage will always be a Hall of Famer, no matter what.”
CM Punk punctuated the Savage tribute by wearing “Macho Man” style yellow boots and pink trunks during the Raw main event.
John Cena posted a fan’s remark on Twitter regarding Punk’s tribute. It reads: “pink trunks, yellow knee pads? How gay are you? I’m returning your action feagure to the store. I’ll choose @JohnCena instead.”
Cena responded, “Please don’t. It was a tribute to randy savage. It was f’n awsome. I was proud to be out there with him.”
