Does anyone know the reason why he started wearing the shirts? I think it was around the early 90's he started wearing the shirts. Was it the fact he was putting on weight,steroids?

Chances are, cycling off of steroids as the Feds closed in on the WWF played the biggest role in him wearing the shirts.  The shirts came off once he went to WCW and started juicing again.

When he retired, he cycled off steroids so he and Elizabeth could try to have kids. Then when he was asked to return to wrestle (after Warrior quit/left/got fired) it was during the steroid trial period and were legit testing since it was in the spotlight.

Another interesting period was late in his WCW run when he was having a mid life crisis on TV every week. He was jacked to the gills (had to be pushing 250-260 pounds which was at least 20 pounds more than his heaviest in the WWF) and his hair suddenly got darker and less thin looking.

Someone asked this question on Wrestling Observer Live yesterday. Meltzer sez that during the steroid testing period, Savage was unhappy with his smaller un-roided body, so started to wear ring gear that covered most it.

And yet it was his 'rodied up WCW body that actually looked rather grotesque and should've been covered up.
