The Mega Powers (“Macho Man” Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan) defeat the Mega Bucks (Andre the Giant and “the Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase with Jesse “the Body” Ventura as referee at SummerSlam: August 29, 1988

Miss Elizabeth’s teeny, tiny bikini was the difference maker, allowing the “Macho Man’ and Hulkster to rally. Savage nailed the Giant with an axe handle that sent him flying to the outside of the ring. Meanwhile, Hogan slammed DiBiase and held him down for Savage’s flying elbow drop. Then, Hogan dropped the big leg for the win. Just a fantastic ending (watch it after the jump).

The other highlight of the night: The Ultimate Warrior winning the Intercontinental Championship from the Honky Tonk Man in just seconds. The Warrior answered Honky’s open challenge to capture the belt, stormed to the ring and disposed of Honky before he could even take off his jumpsuit.
