Re: WM3 - Savage vs Steamboat
It was definitely a great match and arguably the best match as far as match quality goes in WWE for the entire decade of the 80's and it is a match that hasn't lost that much with age like a lot of matches do now due to there being so many PPV's and tv specials now. I remember the first time i watched it on vhs as a young kid and it overshadowed everything else for me as being a kid who grew up as an NWA/WCW fan i was more into great match quality instead of over the top characters and storylines.
That isn't to say the storyline between Randy Savage and Ricky Steamboat wasn't a good one because for it's time it had a real heated and intense storyline behind it which made the match much more anticipated than had it just been thrown together and rely on the in ring abilities of each man. I find Ricky Steamboat to be probably the most underrated in ring performer in history and the ultimate babyface character who could cut a great babyface promo, was always loved by the fans, was a brilliant in ring worker and had a good look and his son has a lot of the same qualities so maybe he could be great as well.
