WWE World Heavyweight Championship - Hulk Hogan

April 02, 1989 - April 01, 1990

Following WrestleMania IV, Hulk Hogan and "Macho Man" Randy Savage formed one of the strongest alliances in WWE history, calling themselves the Mega Powers. As time wore on, the two grew apart, and as is so often the case, the reason was jealousy. Savage became jealous of Hogan and thought he was trying to steal Miss Elizabeth. The partnership finally broke down for good on an edition of Saturday Night's Main Event when the Mega Powers faced the Twin Towers, Big Boss Man and Akeem. Elizabeth got knocked out during the match, and Hogan took her to the back for medical attention, leaving Savage by himself in the ring. After the match, Savage furiously rushed to the back, attacking Hogan while Elizabeth was being tended to by medical personnel. The two met in the middle of the ring at WrestleMania V with the WWE Championship on the line. Savage looked to have things in control as he had Hogan bleeding and hit the Flying Elbow Drop. Hogan miraculously kicked out, though, and rallied to hit the big boot and the Leg Drop for his second WWE Championship. His title reign lasted one year until he met his Ultimate Challenge — then-Intercontinental Champion Ultimate Warrior.
