So because CM Punk does an elbow drop off of the top rope then he must respect Savage more than he does 'Taker? Punk also does a suicide dive in a lot of his matches. Well hell, didn't 'Taker do that a time or two? Yea and look at 'Taker's opponents compared to Savage's opponents at 'Mania? 'Taker spent a number of years wrestling people that were either out of their primes and old(Snuka, Roberts) or wrestling horrible gimmick wrestlers(King Kong Bundy, Giant Gonzalez). It's worth mentioning though, that when he finally got to wrestle people that were good in the ring, he showed exactly what he could do and he didn't disappoint. So Savage put over people that were already over? Warrior had already been WWF Champion, Dibiase was already a top heel, Steamboat was already remembered for his work in other companies, and Yoko was also over has a heel when he faced Savage. No I wouldn't, however, when Savage was put in the announcers booth, he was still very capable of wrestling. I remember him being an announcer one of the top reasons he went to WCW anyway. So obviously, WWF/E didn't think that much of Savage at that time and you can't say that he went to WCW and proved them wrong. He was good in WCW for about 2 years at the most. The rest of the time, he didn't do much at all and if it wasn't for Flair, he wouldn't have done nothing in the WCW for those 2 years. Flair put him over so many times in WCW that it wasn't even funny.
