Figure we could really get some good discussions from this. This wont be like my gimmick thread where I go from beginning to end but rather just my overall thoughts of said feud. Majority of these will be famous feuds but every now and the I'll throw in some lower tier feuds through the years. Lets begin humanoids!!
Mega Powers Explode!!!
Kicking it off here with an iconic feud of the late 80s. I liked how at WM IV after Savage won the belt you see Hogan pick up Liz with Mach looking like ''What the hell you doing?'' Then at SSlam and SSeries that year they would do the same thing with it being a little more evident Savage was getting pissed with Hogan hugging Liz.When they finally did the turn on SNME in February 89 it was gold. Savage IMO had every right to be ticked off(kayfabe speaking) after Hogan abandoned him in the ring to get Liz help. Ventura on commentary really takes the cake as he pretty much destroys Hogan on commentary for doing it.The promos leading up to WM V man were great from both guys. You really felt the real life animosity between the two shine through here.
The match itself at Mania was very good. Great storytelling with Mach playing the great dastardly heel with him yelling at Liz to leave the ringside area plus you had Hogan bleeding here which for this era didn't happen often.No surprise in the winner but still great, great stuff here from an angle that started during Fall of 87 and reached the climax in April 89! Storytelling at it's finest that's for sure.
