On this date in WWF history: The Mega Powers explode!


Whatever happened to bros before hos?

On February 3, 1989, the unlikely tag team of Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan, known as "The Mega Powers," finally disintegrated when the "Macho Man" became convinced that Hulkamania was runnin' wild on Miss Elizabeth.

During their Main Event bout against Akeem and the Big Boss Man, Savage was tossed from the ring, landing on Lizzy and knocking her out cold. Hogan rushed to her aide and raced her to the back, leaving his tag team partner to face "The Twin Towers" by himself.

Not cool.

Liz gets revived, Hulk returns, wins the whole damn match by himself and then can't figure out why Randy is upset. In other words, just another day at the office for ol' yellow and red.

The hilarious video, thanks largely in part to the Hulkster's putrid acting (Doc, save her, pleasssssssse!), after the jump.

Doesn't hold up that well over time, but it was a heck of a big deal when it happened. Any Cagesiders out there remember when this all went down?
