Ric Savage and Randy Savage are not related. Savage is just a ring name.

Ric Savage, real name Frank Huguelet, was born on June 5, 1969 in Sylva, NC. He debuted in professional wrestling in 1991 and has wrestled in WCW, USWA, NWA, ECW, and NCW before retiring in 1997.

These days Ric has his own show on the Spike channel called Savage Family Diggers. The name replaced his original reality series, American Digger, that featured he and his company American Savage as they searched America for buried historical artifacts. The new series has his wife Rita and son Nick as part of the crew.
