"Will You Marry Me?" ..."Ooooh Yeah!"
Let's forget the fact that Macho and Liz had been married for something like 8 years now in real life. No one knew that and for good reason; kayfabe was still alive for the most part. Following the events of WrestleMania VII, this was the next step in their storybook relationship, tumultuous as it was. Of course Mean Gene was involved, how could he not? I think what really makes this is the commentary between Vince McMahon and Roddy Piper though. Given what we know about the relationship between Macho and Vince at this point, it's not that hard to believe that the exuberance in Vince's voice is real and genuine, and Piper just unbelievably questioning whether Liz would say yes or not. If it were 1998 and Vince Russo were booking, then she'd say no and reveal she had a cadre of brother-husbands, including Hulk Hogan, Ricky Steamboat, Honky Tonk Man and Gillberg, but thankfully, this was still in a time when a feel-good payoff was better than a swerve.
Plus, Liz responding with "Oooh yeah!" and Macho's classic bewildered reaction are just the best things ever.
