King of the Ring 1988

16 Oct, 1988

DiBiase defeats Randy Savage, Ken Patera and Brutus Beefcake to claim the crown at King of the Ring 1988.

I identified with Randy a lot. We both had a lot in common, in that we were both buys who grew up in this industry whose fathers were wrestlers. I’ve always believed that for kids who that grew up in the industry that it’s not just a job, but it’s something they fell in love with and something they’ve known all their lives. There’s a certain camaraderie there. In a word, Randy was charismatic.
