Re: Craziest rumor you have ever heard.
I think that the Savage/Stephanie rumor is one of those rumors that gets believed, simply because it's been repeated so much.
The reason I'm not sure I believe it, is because as far as everything I've heard, Randy was one of the few good guys in the industry, who was completely faithful to his wife. Bret has said that as far as he knew, Randy was completely true to Elizabeth, and Warrior alluded to the fact that Randy was a standup husband in this regard.
Now he and Liz separated in the summer of 1992, so that still gives him a time period where he was single while Stephanie was 15 (for a few months). But that's irrelevant, because what I'm saying has nothing to do with me saying that he wouldn't have cheated on Liz with Steph.
I'm mentioning all that stuff about him being a stand up husband, because that suggests something about his character. Usually a guy who is that faithful to his wife, even when he's in a position of being able to have his pick of women...that type of guy is not usually the type of guy who's then gonna go banging 15 year olds when he's 40. You know? Not to mention the unbelievable risk involved, knowing that her dad was his employer.
Of course I'd never put anything past anyone, and I'm as cynical as they come. So though it wouldn't surprise me because of my cynical nature, I still at this point think that it's probably untrue. It's a steamy rumor, so that's probably why it gets spread. I'd love to know the original source. The fact that it's so random does make it more believable to me, but could it have been just a kid having fun at the computer? I wonder how long that rumor has existed.
