WWE Hall Of Famer Shares Memories Of “Kind” Randy Savage

WWE legend Macho Man Randy Savage

A WWE Hall of Famer has shared their memories of Randy Savage.

After breaking into the wrestling business aged just 15, Bull Nakano quickly established herself as one of the best female wrestlers in history. The star is best remembered for her time in All Japan Women’s Pro-Wrestling, and later the WWF and WCW.

During her short spell with the WWF, Nakano wrestled a series of matches with Alundra Balyze, that helped to (briefly) shift the way women’s wrestling was presented. This saw the pair exchange the Women’s Title in 1994 and into 1995.

Nakano was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2024.

Bull Nakano Has Fond Memories Of Randy Savage In WWE

While with the WWF, Nakano briefly crossed paths with Randy Savage, although he left for WCW in December 1994. However, when Nakano continued her rivalry with Alundra Blayze in the promotion after leaving the WWF, she again found herself sharing the card with the Macho Man.

Reflecting on her time in North America in an interview with Justin Barrasso for Sports Illustrated, Nakano said Savage was always kind to her, recalling him making her laugh because she couldn’t understand English.

“All of the top stars were also excellent human beings, especially the ‘Macho Man’, who was very kind to me,” said Nakano. “Randy made me laugh with his gestures when I could not understand English. I want to make sure to thank him.”

Bull Nakano was forced to retire through injury in the months after her final match with Blayze at WCW Clash of Champions in August 1996. The legend made one-off returns to the ring in 2012 and 2017 but has otherwise remained retired.

Although no longer getting involved in the action, Bull Nakano is still working within the industry, serving as commissioner for Sukeban.
