What really happened to Miss Elizabeth?

Miss Elizabeth and Randy Savage went onto becoming the couple that took over the pro-wrestling world by storm. Not only did they become a thriving pair in the ring, but their real-life marriage had everyone talking about them.

Miss Elizabeth served a huge role in Savage’s run as heel. The fans loved her, with her charming smile and innocent aura. Therefore, whenever Macho Man mistreated her, the fans reacted. It was the perfect setup!

When Macho Man turned babyface, The Hart Foundation and the Honky Tonk man brutally attacked him. This is when Elizabeth sought Hulk Hogan’s help to save Savage. Even though Macho Man burned with jealousy, her reaching out to Hogan formed The Mega Power – Savage, Hogan, and Elizabeth.

However, Savage turned on Hogan when The Hulkster left their match against The Twin Towers to carry Elizabeth backstage after she took a fall. Following this, Macho Man fired Elizabeth as his manager and began working with Sherri.

At WrestleMania VII, Savage was in a match against The Ultimate Warrior. After losing to him, Sherri attacked Savage as well, but Miss Elizabeth came to his aid and saved him. This led to the wedding ‘Match Made in Heaven’ at SummerSlam 1991.

Their final storyline was against Ric Flair. After Savage defeated Flair, Miss Elizabeth and Savage left WWE. Savage moved to WCW, and Miss Elizabeth worked with him there as well. But, by this time they were divorced.
