WWE World Heavyweight Championship - Randy Savage

March 27, 1988 - April 02, 1989

After Andre the Giant attempted to sell the WWE Championship to "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, President Jack Tunney vacated the title and set up a 14-man tournament to determine the new, undisputed champion. Savage went through "The Natural" Butch Reed, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine and One Man Gang before meeting up with DiBiase in the finals. DiBiase was coming off a bye in the semifinals, while Savage was nailed with a foreign object in his match with One Man Gang. Andre the Giant was in DiBiase's corner and during the match Hulk Hogan joined Miss Elizabeth in support of Savage. During the match, Andre went after Savage, which distracted the referee. This gave Hogan the opportunity to hit DiBiase with a chair, which then set up the flying elbow drop from Savage for the win. Hogan helped Savage win the WWE Championship, but one year later the two would meet at WrestleMania V when the Mega Powers exploded.
