TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… FEB 3rd: The Mega-Powers Explode

DATELINE: FEB 3, 1989 – THE BRADLEY CENTER – MILWAUKEE, WI


WWF presents the second edition of The Main Event on NBC, which features The Mega Powers team of Hulk Hogan & Randy Savage defeating The Twin Towers, Akeem & The Big Bossman.

The story of the match, the night, and the year, for the World Wrestling Federation was the fallout of the evening. During the match itself, Savage was thrown out of the ring by Akeem onto Elizabeth. Hogan attempted to assist Elizabeth, carrying her backstage to safety.

Once he established that she was fine, Hogan returned to the ring. When The Hulkster finally tagged into the match, an angered Savage slapped him. Hogan would go on to win the match for the Mega-Powers.

After the match, an incredibly jealous Savage accused Hogan of trying to steal Elizabeth away from him.  Hogan tried to convince Elizabeth to talk sense into him, but Savage hit The Hulkster with the WWF Championship belt, anyway.

It was a very public break up for the Mega Powers, and one that set up the main event for Wrestlemania V  on April 2nd.
