For months the company had been building to the eventual breakup of Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage, throwing in subtle hints of dissension before eventually staging multiple in-ring arguments. The Main Event would be the night their partnership would dissolve.
During the bout, Savage was thrown out of the ring and landed on Elizabeth, knocking her to the floor. Hogan spent the next several minutes seeing to her care and brought her to the dressing room for medical attention (Watching this segment now is positively guffaw-inducing, mostly due to Hogan's ridiculous overacting, but to my 13-year-old eyes at the time it was intense drama.), leaving Savage alone against his two massive opponents. When Hogan finally returned to the ring, Savage abandoned him after slapping him in the face, much to the shock of the crowd.
|So goofy by today's standards, but man this angle was brilliant.|
