Savage sours the Mega Powers
Coming in at No. 3 on WWE.com's Hardest Hitting Betrayals edition of List This! is a moment that hit the WWE Universe almost as hard as it hit Hulk Hogan: The explosion of the Mega Powers -- Hogan and then-WWE Champion "Macho Man" Randy Savage -- on the Feb. 3, 1989 episode of The Main Event.
Hogan & Savage formed a team that was virtually unbeatable. Miss Elizabeth was the beauty at their side as they unleashed a beast that tore through opponent after opponent. Even the colossal Twin Towers -- Big Boss Man & Akeem "The African Dream" -- weren't large enough to tame the mega monster. In fact, the only thing that could beat the Mega Powers was the Mega Powers themselves.
After Savage unintentionally collided with Elizabeth during the Mega Powers vs. Twin Towers contest, she was knocked unconscious and needed immediate medical assistance. Hogan left his tag team partner in the ring to bring the First Lady of Wrestling to the locker room.
When Hogan returned to the ring and offered a tag, Savage slapped him in the face and left him to finish the match. Though the Hulkster pulled off the win, he was moments away from the beating of his life.
The leader of Hulkamania returned to the locker room area only to get a face full of the WWE Champion, who accused him of having "jealous eyes" for Savage's gold and "lustful eyes" for the champion's better half.
Hogan assured Savage he was mistaken, but it didn't matter. Randy Savage showed Hogan his title up close, burying it in his face and following it with a series of punches. Eventually, Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake came to Hogan's aid and Savage stormed out of the locker room. "Macho Man" and Hogan would settle their differences two months later at WrestleMania V.
