Randy Savage-Stephanie McMahon Rumors
There's a long standing rumor in professional wrestling that Randy Savage had sex with Stephanie McMahon when she was underage.
I seriously doubt this is true. A lot of people think this is the reason Savage and Vince never did business after he left for WCW. But really it's always been about money. Savage sold out to WCW. WWE and Savage couldn't come to terms on an action figure because of money.
I thought the Steph rumor was a complete internet conspiracy theory. But then I heard Sean Waltman give a shoot interview where he said he heard the rumor in WWE.
Bob Holly addressed the rumor in his book, and said something like "All I'll say is he was very friendly to her."
It was reported on wrestling news sites that high ranking officials in the company said it was true. I think it was in Meltzer's report.
So it goes beyond some idiot wrestling fan making up a rumor on the internet.
I still doubt it's true though.
My fondest memory of Savage is at WrestleMania VII where he wrestled Ultimate Warrior. It was entertaining, but Savage had to be carried to that match.
