During an episode of 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff discussed the relationship between Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan during their time together in WCW. Here’s what he had to say:
Randy Savage wouldn’t have been in WCW had it not been for Hulk Hogan. No, I don’t think that played into it at all. And maybe I’m looking at the past with rose colored glasses because I guess I tend to want to do that, but even though there were beats and moments between Hogan and Randy that got a little tense, they were minor, and they were rare. For the most part, those two guys were thick.
There was a period of time, and Hulk’s talked a lot about the roller coaster relationship that those two had, and they did have a roller coaster relationship all the way up to the very end, right before Randy died, when Hulk Hogan had a doctor’s appointment and coincidentally with the same doctor that Randy Savage had. Hulk was having back and knee issues at the time and they crossed paths in the doctor’s office, that was the first time they had spoken to each other in a long time and kind of buried the hatchet and hugged and brought it right back to where they had been when they were friends, only for Randy to die shortly there after of a heart attack.
