I need help from you history buffs...

For some reason, I cannot remember how Hogan regained the belt after it was held up in the twin-Hebner ref - Andre debacle. I know that Savage won the belt at Wrestlemania 4, so did Hogan beat Savage for the belt after the MegaPowers self-destructed? And if so, when?

I can't seem to remember how this all played out, but it beginning to drive me nuts...

Edit: It appears my ability to spell is fading as well... damn...

Someone else is going to have to fill in the details about the MegaPowers destruction, but I know that Hogan defeated Savage at Wrestlemania V for the World Title. It was actually a pretty good match, as long as you pay no attention to the fact that 10 minutes of Savage offense can't keep Hogan down for three, yet The Usual Routine™ from Hogan finishes Savage off.

It's a sad, depressing story about a pathetic coyote who spends every waking moment of his life in the futile pursuit of a sadistic roadrunner, who mocks him and laughs at him as he is repeatedly crushed and maimed. I hope you enjoy it!"

Okay, let's see how much of this I recall.

First, the MegaPowers were formed initially before Wrestlemania IV, I believe. Savage was getting his butt kicked by I think the Hart Foundation (Hard and Niedhart) as well as the Honky Tonk Man, and Elizabeth ran into the back for help, dragging out Hulk Hogan. He saw what was going on, beat away the attackers, and when he and Savage backed into each other they each raised a fist, and then on Elizabeth's urging engaged in "the handshake" that was replayed many many times. This MAY have happened after WMIV, but since Hogan helped Savage win the belt then, I'm pretty sure it was before.

Anyway, fast forward a few months to the summer. Hogan is helping Savage, Savage is helping Hogan. They set up a SummerSlam main event of the MegaPowers versus the MegaBucks -- Andre and DiBiase. During the weeks leading up to SS, Hogan starts refering to Elizabeth as "my manager" and calling her "the beautiful Elizabeth" and mentions a secret weapon of an "itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini" at SS.

SS comes and the MegaPowers win with Elizabeth stripping off her skirt to show a (modest) set of panties/bikini, engaging Heenan, DiBiase and special ref Jesse Ventura, while humorously Andre is trying to get Ventura's attention to count out Savage and Hogan. It's not to be, as Hogan and Savage recreate their handshake on the outside and storm back to get the pinfall win, laboriously counted by Jesse.

Over the next couple months, some cracks start showing in the Megapowers. Savage is upset at Elizabeth coming out solely with Hogan (saying she should only go with Hogan when they team, as she's Savage's manager) and at Hogan for his possessive comments, notes on her beauty and for his continued reference to her striptease.

The end comes at a winter Saturday Night's Main Event, I believe, where the MegaPowers, at Elizabeth's insistence, are going to put aside their differences and face Big Boss Man and Akeen in a tag match. Middle of the match Elizabeth is accidentally knocked out, and the last shot we see before commercial is a tearful Hogan carrying her to the back for medical assistance. Savage, meanwhile, gets his butt handed to him in the ring and is pinned.

After the match he goes to the back looking for Hogan, raising a fuss, knocking stuff over. I can't remember the details, but I'm pretty sure he attacks Hogan and accidentally hits Liz, but again I'm not sure.

Anyway, the split is official, as Savage gets even more possessive, and whips out a TV clip of Hogan saying "I love Elizabeth" as proof he has the hots for her. Of course, it was a months-old clip that was followed by "like a sister" but I thought at the time it was very creative editing. Either way, the game was on and they'd eventually meet at Wrestlemania V.

I know I've left out some details, but that's the gist of it -- pure jealous rage by Savage led to the demise of the MegaPowers.

Actually, I remembered most of this - I just could not remember if Savage was champion at the time, and if that is how Hogan regained the belt - which made it all the more frustrating.

Just wasn't in the memory banks for some reason

But thanks for all of the responses...

Yes, but it wouldn't have lasted that long if Macho and Hulk had to do Raw and Smackdown every week. It's not just the attention span of the viewer it's the expanded television schedule that has ruined most long-term feuds. Hell, I got tired of RVD-Eddie, a feud I was hyped for when it started, because we just saw it too much, that's the one problem with the sheer amount of TV they produce today.

I also remember Savage showing the footage of him and Hogan lifting Liz and Hogan grabbing her behind for a second to steady her.
I believe that was actually taken on the night they united..clever stuff..

yes, there was much less tv and ppv then, but it still would be nice, and possible, for storylines to move much more slowly. Due to the split, they're only on tv once a week, so they should be able to keep us interested in a well-told story. These days everything is hotshotted so much that with Savage winning the title at WM, the megapowers would be exploding by summerslam with no reason for anyone to care because the storyline would be given no chance to develop.

Sorry, guys, but if you can't even bother to spell the man's name right, I can't give your arguments any credibility. (I'm sure this breaks you up inside.)
