In 1988, two established headlining acts, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage, came together to make a super team. Their biggest foes were the Twin Towers, who were Akeem and Big Boss Man.
The Mega Powers would have an iffy relationship at best, mainly because of Miss Elizabeth's involvement. Elizabeth aside, these two were top tier names and perennial main eventers, much like Sheamus, Randy Orton, and Big Show.
In a match against the heel team at NBC's Main Event in 1989, Elizabeth would be knocked out, and Hogan would abandon Savage to take her to the medics. Randy was beaten and beaten, but would survive long enough for Hogan to return at Elizabeth's command.
When Hogan reached for the tag, an angry Savage slapped him in the face and left for the locker room. After Hogan defeated the Towers by himself (shocker!), he confronted Savage in the back, leading to a brawl and a Savage heel turn.
Couldn't you imagine Randy Orton getting through this match with turmoil, only to lose his cool and attack Sheamus? Me too.
The Shield will again be victorious to set up the turn, but the fallout could very well lead to an Orton vs. Sheamus main event feud in the future.
