Wrestlemania V of course featured the melting of the Mega Powers and BFFs Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage squared off in the main event. Hogan (as expected) pinned Savage to become the champion again. The heel title run of the Macho Man was short-lived.
That disappointment aside, I must say I was pleasantly surprised that "Ravishing" Rick Rude won the Intercontinental title from the Ultimate Warrior. Rude was so confident he'd win, he wore an airbrushed version of the title on his tights. Great stuff. Warrior was obviously the bigger, stronger man in the match, but as Rude and his manager Bobby Heenan proved, Warrior wasn't the smarter man. From what I remember of the match, Warrior got his foot tangled in the ropes as he tried to suplex Rude back into the ring. Rude fell on top of him and pinned the champ. Warrior was kicking to get out of the pin and Heenan put his hands up to protect himself. (That's the heel commentator's version of what happened. :D)
