Randy Savage was and still is more popular than flair. Savage was bigger than the likes of Rock, Cena, Goldberg etc.

They where both big for who they worked for, Ric Flair carried the nwa on his back for years and was huge, and Randy Savage along with Hulk Hogan where the two main guys for Vince, once again they where both huge in their prime.

Savage might just take it for me, big Flair fan but Savage had the more mainstream name back in his prime.

STOP the Savage love fest.

More proof the WWF and the internet have brainwashed a generation.

Guys Savage was great, I loved him, followed his career, watched him live before he "made it" in small town gyms. But bigger than Flair? Heck NO! Flair was The man, he was the standard by which all wrestlers aspire.

Honestly Savage was white hot, until the WWF decided to let him wear the cowboy hat. I know that sounds absurd but the little things well they matter. I was there I saw it happen. I watched him turn from crazed lunatic fringe edgy heel/face to cartoon character, with one wardrobe choice. The hat well, it just made him into a clown. But with or without the cowboy hat he was never, and I mean never in Flair's league.

The same people who vote for Savage in this poll would vote for Bruno as GOAT in other polls

I'm going with Flair. Single handedly made NWA/WCW/JCP into a national promotion. He carried the company on his back in the 80s. Savage was big but in terms of what he did and meant to the business, Flair by a mile.

I can understand your point of view, being from the UK. But in the United States, Flair was second to NO ONE! This maybe the real problem here. So many of the posters on this board are from other countries outside the States. Wrestling history to them took place pretty much in the WWF during the 80-90's. They do not understand that in America the NWA was every bit the WWF's equal for a very long period of time.

No he wasn't. Savage might have been bigger than Cena but as for Rock and Goldberg(98-00); hell no. Ric Flair is one of the biggest names in pro wrestling history and has a great argument for being the fourth biggest star ever after Hogan, Austin, and Rock. As great as Savage was, his popularity was always surpassed by someone else. First it was Hogan, then it was Ultimate Warrior, and finally Bret Hart. Was he really popular? Yes. But more popular than Flair? No. And damn sure not more popular than Rock or Goldberg.

Um? Is this a joke? It's Ric Flair & it's not close. Flair was a huge draw.
