47. Randy Savage vs. Ted DiBiase, WrestleMania IV

Date: 3/27/1988
Location: Atlantic City, N.J.
Storyline: The finals of a 14-man tournament to crown a new WWF champ.
Winner: Randy Savage via top-rope elbow drop at 9:27
Savage was wrestling his fourth match of the night and selling fatigue. He also had help at ringside from Hulk Hogan, who hit DiBiase with a chair to set up the finish. Hogan stealing the spotlight during the post-match celebration was a bit unseemly and foreshadowed next year's main event.
