What A Set Of Randy Savage's Attire Was Actually Worth On Pawn Stars

Wrestling may be scripted, but the greatness of its champions is real. And throughout wrestling history, few could ever be as great as WWE Hall of Famer "Macho Man" Randy Savage. With a wrestling career spanning nearly two and a half decades, the late, great Savage dominated the sport of professional wrestling both in and out of the ring. His physical prowess was matched perfectly by his intensely explosive personality.

He also gained fame as a longtime rival, and sometimes partner to the face of WWE, Hulk Hogan. Together, the two fought as the Mega Powers until their rivalry was bitterly reignited in the late 1980s. In the years that followed, the Macho Man continued to stand out as one of the world's most popular wrestlers until his retirement in 2000 and his eventual death in 2011.

Given how he's held in such high esteem, Randy Savage's memorabilia is highly valued among collectors. Incidentally, this makes it exactly the kind of item that the guys at "Pawn Stars" are on the lookout for. Luckily for them, they got the chance to pick up some authentic Macho Man duds in one fateful episode.

How Randy Savage's threads scored $5,000

In the episode "Top Rope, Bottom Dollar," one customer brings in a set of "Macho Man" Randy Savage's custom-made wrestling gear. The bright yellow shirt and pants, tied together with a matching yellow cowboy hat, are certified by the tell-tale scrawl of Macho Man's double-M signature. Corey, a lifelong wrestling fan, is nonetheless not a huge Savage fan. However, his interest is piqued, and he elects to call upon an expert for an official appraisal.

The seller, Tim, obtained this outfit after working as the wedding photographer for Macho Man's 2010 wedding ceremony. Savage's widow allowed Tim to take the outfit as a gift after the wrestler died of atherosclerosis in 2011, as reported by the St. Petersburg Times. If this anecdote is true, it would certainly help verify the idea that the Macho Man ring gear is authentic. Thankfully, a quick check from Corey's wrestling expert proves that the signatures (and likely Tim's story) are legitimate.

The only important question left, according to the expert, is whether or not Savage wore this particular outfit at an event. If so, its price would skyrocket. Unfortunately, Tim's outfit has no credentials. As a result, the expert values the whole ensemble at $7,000. The seller is happy with this price until Corey sets his first offer at just $3,000. The two men haggle back and forth before settling on $5,000. It may not be the highest price, but it's certainly one worthy of Macho Man's legacy.
