Zeus

During the filming of No Holds Barred, reports spread that tensions were high on the set between Hulk Hogan and the man known as "the Human Wrecking Machine," Zeus. In the spring of 1989, Zeus appeared in WWE with Slick, and attacked Hogan before his Steel Cage Match with Big Boss Man. Zeus claimed that he was the real star of No Holds Barred and that he was going to destroy Hogan.

Zeus continued to stalk Hogan at arenas around the United States and joined forces with "Macho Man" Randy Savage. They challenged the team of Hogan and Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake at SummerSlam. The battle didn't end there as the four men brought others into the fray at that November's Survivor Series. Zeus made his final appearance with WWE in December 1989 in No Holds Barred--The Match. Zeus appeared months later in Puerto Rico and briefly resurfaced in 1996 in World Championship Wrestling as Z Gangsta. Today, the man once known as Zeus, Tommy "Tiny" Lister can be seen in many films and television programs.

Zeus Calls Out John Cena

Zeus confronts Hulk Hogan in No Holds Barred

Tiny Lister, who appeared as Zeus in WWE and No Holds Barred, called out John Cena for being a "fake rapper."

"John Cena, I'm calling you out to all your fans," Lister said on the Another Wrestling Podcast with Steve Credo (listen here). "You want to come do reality shows, take that make-up off John, it don't look good on you. Be a real cat, real cats don't wear make-up. John, get off that reality show. I'll meet your ass in the ring... in your house and I'm calling you out. Because I see the WWE they got too damn soft."

In the spring of 1989, Lister appeared in WWE as Zeus and attacked Hulk Hogan before a Steel Cage Match with Big Boss Man. Zeus claimed that he was the real star of No Holds Barred and that he was going to destroy Hogan.
