10. ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage vs. Hulk Hogan – WrestleMania V
Hulk Hogan and ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage are arguably the most popular wrestlers of their era, so a match featuring the two of them against one another was always going to be huge. On top of that, the storyline leading up to this encounter was a memorable one, lasting months or perhaps even over a year, when you look at the big picture.
After Savage won the tournament to crown a new WWF Heavyweight Champion at WrestleMania IV, Hogan came out to celebrate the victory with him, whether to garner some of the spotlight for himself or celebrate with his friend, you decide.
Months prior to this, Miss Elizabeth summoned for Hogan to come out and help the ‘Macho Man’ who was getting beaten down by the Honky Tonk Man and the Hart Foundation. This led to the formation of the Mega Towers, Savage and Hogan’s tag team. Nearly right from the start of this alliance, tension and animosity grew between the two, with Savage having some legitimate gripes with Hogan’s relationship with Miss Elizabeth.
Their friendship and feud is one of the most memorable angles not just in WWE’s history, but spanned across to other promotions as well.
