Hulk Hogan became a household name during his time in the WWE. He was discovered in the 1970s by Vince McMahon Sr. His first big match was against Andre the Giant in 1980.

Hogan famously lost his title during a controversy involving two referees. During this time, he teamed up with Randy “Macho Man” Savage and they became The Mega Powers. The tag team didn’t last long because of Savage’s growing jealousy of Hogan’s relationship with Miss Elizabeth. This feud led to the main event match between the two wrestlers at WrestleMania V.
