Hulette was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1960, and grew up in Kentucky. According to the WWF's Spotlight magazine, Elizabeth enjoyed walks through the meadows and horses during her childhood. She earned a degree in communications from the University of Kentucky.
Elizabeth rose to national prominence in the fall of 1985 when she was introduced as the manager of WWF wrestler Randy "Macho Man" Savage (her real life husband, Randy Savage, whom she married a year earlier). The two quickly became successful: Elizabeth guided Savage to the WWF's Intercontinental title in Boston on Feb. 8, 1986, and later, the WWF World Title on 27 March 1988, in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
But that's only half the story. Elizabeth represented a new kind of woman in professional wrestling -- the diva, or someone whose sex appeal takes precedence over athleticism. Merchandise and magazines bearing her picture were big sellers. Plus, Elizabeth figured as a key part of several angles, or storylines, in Savage's feuds with WWF foes George "the Animal" Steele, the Honky Tonk Man, Jake Roberts, Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan. Elizabeth later served as Hogan's manager, which touched off one of the WWF's fiercest feuds of 1989.
Elizabeth and Randy Savage were part of the "Match Made in Heaven" portion of the WWF's Summerslam '91 on 26 August 1991. Alas, the marriage was a work (i.e., fake), as the two were already married; the "wedding" was used to help set up Savage's feud with Roberts. Alas, the marriage (both the real and storyline marriage) wouldn't last; Elizabeth left the WWF in 1992, shortly before she and Savage divorced.
She returned to wrestling in 1996 in the rival World Championship Wrestling (WCW), where she served as manager for Hogan and Lex Luger (Lawrence Pfohl, her soon-to-be real-life boyfriend), while also working with ex-husband Savage on occasion. She left the WCW in early 1999. Later, she owned a clothing store in the Miami, Florida. area. She died on the 1st May 2003, leaving behind many fond memories with her fans.
