During an appearance on the “Busted Open” satellite radio show, WWE Hall of Famer George “The Animal” Steele discussed why Randy Savage has yet to be inducted into the Hall of Fame and why it more than likely doesn’t pertain to the many rumors regarding Savage’s past relationship with the company.
“That’s been said a lot of different ways, and there’s been a lot of different things said that are not true necessarily. I think that what happened with Randy, when his career was winding down with the WWF, Vince McMahon just loved Randy. After all everything Randy had done and he took him under his wing, and he wanted Randy after the ring was over with for him, he wanted him to be our spokesperson. He was traveling with Vince all the time. Randy was almost like a son, they were really tight. And then one day, we were at a TV meeting, and we got word that Randy, without calling Vince, had left and jumped to the WCW. I had never seen Vince McMahon broken before, he was crushed. It hurt him big time and I don’t think he ever got over that. I think that’s the real problem to be honest with you. I heard all this other stuff that I think is garbage when it comes to Randy and relationships with daughters and all that stuff…..I don’t think that’s anywhere close to the truth.”
