About Miss Elizabeth

Miss Elizabeth

Decades after making her World Wrestling Federation debut, Miss Elizabeth’s impact is still being felt today. Appropriately dubbed the “First Lady of Wrestling,” her gentle-yet-influential contributions helped pave the way for all females that followed.

In 1985, World Wrestling Federation newcomer Randy “Macho Man” Savage set out on a search to find a manager. Nearly every personality with a manager’s license threw his hat in the ring. In the end, Savage unveiled the beautiful Miss Elizabeth as his choice. Over the next seven years, Savage and Elizabeth’s very public roller coaster relationship provided fans with a soap-opera type romance never before seen in the WWF.

Upon her debut, both fans and WWF Superstars became smitten by her innocent smile and impeccable style. The admiration she received, however, didn’t sit well with Savage. The jealous wrestler continually took his frustrations out on his harmless manager, despite the fact that she never acted on anybody’s advances.

The always-classy Elizabeth took Savage’s verbal attacks in stride. Instead of simply walking away, she stood by her man and helped guide him to greatness. In 1988, Elizabeth achieved the ultimate goal when she managed Savage to the WWF Championship at WrestleMania IV. The win made Elizabeth the first female to manage a WWF Champion.

Macho Man Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth

Elizabeth’s relationship with Hulk Hogan sent Macho Man into a jealous rage. The couple split soon after, sending Elizabeth into a more private lifestyle and Savage into a working relationship with Sensational Sherri.

In 1991, after Savage lost a Retirement Match to Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania VII, Elizabeth reemerged to save her man from an attacking Sherri. Following the save, Elizabeth and Savage shared a loving embrace that drew tears of happiness from nearly everybody watching. The couple celebrated their love later that year when they got married at SummerSlam. The smile on Elizabeth’s face told the entire story of a beautiful woman who finally found happiness.

In 1992, when Ric Flair made slanderous remarks about his alleged prior relationship with the beautiful manager, Elizabeth enjoyed double revenge at WrestleMania VIII. The “Macho Man” beat Flair for his second WWF Championship, and she slapped the taste out of Flair’s mouth. Later that year, without any fanfare, Elizabeth abdicated her position at ringside, and Savage continued without her.

After four years away from the squared circle, Elizabeth resurfaced in World Championship Wrestling in 1996 to once again manage Savage and Hogan. Over the next few years she was also the valet of Flair and The Four Horsemen, the nWo, and Lex Luger. After being released from her contract with WCW in August 2000, Elizabeth vanished from professional wrestling.

To the shock of fans all around the globe, Elizabeth tragically passed away of a drug and alcohol overdose on May 1, 2003 in the home she shared with Luger.
