Elizabeth Ann Heulette was born on November 19, 1960 in Kentucky. She graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in communications and worked as a camera operator at her father's television station which hosted events for International Championship Wrestling. That organization was run by Angelo Poffo, the father of Randy “Macho Man” Savage
. Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth became husband and wife on December 30, 1984.
Randy Savage joined WWE in 1985 and surprised all the manager's of the era by picking Miss Elizabeth as his manager. While she was technically his manager, he behaved more like a jealous boyfriend towards her. A few months later, she found herself the as the object of George “The Animal” Steele's affections. Unlike Savage, “The Animal” behaved like a gentleman towards her and would give her gifts. The issues with George Steel came to a conclusion at WrestleMania III where George's interference cost Randy the Intercontinental Championship in his battle against Ricky Steamboat.
The Mega Powers:
In October of 1987, Randy Savage fought the Honky Tonk Man
for the Intercontinental Championship. Following the bout, the Honky Tonk Man tried to hit Randy with his guitar but Elizabeth tried to stop him. After Honky Tonk Man shoved her to the floor, she ran in the back and got Hulk Hogan
to help Randy Savage. The Mega Powers became the dominant faction in the WWE and Randy Savage wound up winning the vacant WWE Championship at WrestleMania IV
The Mega Powers Explode:
The good times didn't last for long. Over the next few months, Randy started to act strangely when he saw Hulk and Elizabeth celebrate. Things came to a head during a live edition of The Main Event which was broadcast on NBC in 1989. While Hulk was tending to an injured Miss Elizabeth in the back, he left Randy alone in their tag team match against the Big Boss Man and Akeem. Randy stormed the trainers room and accused Hulk of lusting after his title and Miss Elizabeth. Randy and Hulk fought each other at WrestleMania V and Elizabeth was forced to watch the bout from the back. Randy then chose Sherri Martel as his new manager.
The Match Made in Heaven:
The two reunited after Randy lost a retirement match to the Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania VII
. The two were married at SummerSlam 1991
. That night, the couple got a horrible surprise as Jake Roberts
gave Miss Elizabeth a cobra as a wedding gift. A few months later, Jake's cobra gnawed at Randy's arm and he was reinstated. While Randy won the match, Jake won the war at Tuesday in Texas
as he slapped Miss Elizabeth. In the final battle of the feud, Randy beat Jake during the January 1992 edition of Saturday Night's Main Event
She Was Mine Before She Was Yours:
Randy wound up as the number one contender for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania VIII
. Ric Flair
, the champion at the time, devised a plan to get under Randy's skin. He claimed that he dated Miss Elizabeth before Randy did and he had the photos to prove it. Randy not only won the championship at WrestleMania VIII
, he also proved that the photos of Ric and Elizabeth were doctored. Shortly after that, Elizabeth was gone from the company as she filed for divorce from Randy in real-lfe.
Miss Elizabeth returned to Randy Savage's and Hulk Hogan's side in 1995. She turned on Randy and helped Ric Flair win the WCW World Championship from him at SuperBrawl VI. She became one of the valets for the Four Horsemen but a few months later was forced to join the new World order. Things got better for her in that group when Randy joined. The following year, both were involved in a feud with Dallas Page and Kimberly. In 1997, Elizabeth married Cary Lubetsky, but that marriage did not last too long.
In 1999, Elizabeth became the manager for Lex Luger
. Despite being released from her WCW contract in 2000, she continued to stay in a real-life relationship with him. On April 19, 2003, the two were involved in a domestic dispute that left her with two bruised eyes. A few days later, she was the passenger in the car when Lex was arrested for a DUI after rear-ending another car.
The Death of Miss Elizabeth:
On May 1, 2003, Lex Luger called 9-1-1 from his condo to report that Miss Elizabeth wasn't breathing. Shortly after arriving at the Kennestone Hospital in Cobb County, GA, Miss Elizabeth was pronounced dead. She died from an accidental overdose of a combination of alcohol and pain pills. She was only 42 years old.
