Quotes

The Genius: From the Meadowlands Arena to the multitudes beyond, I, The Genius, full of glory and renown, share my wondrous words of wisdom with the SummerSlam spectacular to validate my mortar board and gown. Brutus Beefcake and Hulk Hogan shall be running for their lives, the highest card they're holding is a deuce.

Recap
1 July 2002 | by Spawn DevilSee all my reviews

He was the most powerful force in the universe, and the key to Randy `Macho Man' Savage's plan to destroy his bitter enemy, Hulk Hogan. His name was Zeus, a mountain of a man standing at nearly 7 feet and weighing around 300 pounds of solid muscle. Savage recruited Zeus in an effort to take down Hogan, who with his ally, Brutus `The Barber' Beefcake, battled Savage and Zeus in a tag team match to headline SummerSlam 1989. In the end, Hulkamania triumphed again when Hogan bodyslammed Zeus and hit the legdrop for the win! For the second year in a row, the Ultimate Warrior made history at SummerSlam by capturing his second Intercontinental Championship. Warrior defeated `Ravishing' Rick Rude, who five months earlier defeated Warrior for the title at WrestleMania V. The win would eventually lead to Warrior's epic title-for-title confrontation with Hogan at WrestleMania VI.
