Zeus arrived in WWE in 1989, targeting his No Holds Barred co-star Hulk Hogan, and quickly formed a partnership with Hogan nemeses Randy Savage and Sensational Sherri. Promoting the DVD release of No Holds Barred on July 3, WWE has released a video titled "Moments of Serenity with Macho Man and Zeus."
The video montage features clips of Savage, Zeus and Sherri verbally attacking Hogan and Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake in promotion of their SummerSlam showdown. The villainous group would come up short in their pay-per-view encounter as Hogan struck Zeus with Sherri's loaded purse while the referee was distracted, which was followed by a scoop slam and leg drop for the pinfall victory.
WWE.com has also added Zeus to their Alumni section, who parted ways with the organization in December 1989 after losing a SummerSlam rematch. He resumed his feud with Hogan in World Championship Wrestling in 1996 as a member of The Alliance To End Hulkamania. His band of misfits came up short in a Doomsday Cage Match versus Hogan and Savage at Uncensored—the match is currently airing on WWE Classics On Demand as a great WCW moment.
