The 1993 tag division wasn't all that bad. Mega Maniacs/Heavenly Bodies is a perfect combination of styles and it's sorta sad Cornette never got to be a Hogan antagonist because it feels natural.
They did have the Samoan Gangsta Party confront him, but that was dropped almost instantly. The whole push may have been an effort to appease the Taker since Fatu was in the BSKIt was more that Fatu didn't actually do anything. Like he would come out, talk about making a difference, but not ever do anything to make said difference. Is beating Reno Riggins on Action Zone going to end gang violence? Nah. It was so fucking hollow.
Supposedly Vince accepted a "bet" to take the number 500 wrestler in the PWI 500 and make him a "star". Drose did come in with a ready made gimmick for the era.Weirdly, Duke Droese is the rare person in wrestling industry who might be more of a horrible person than Bill DeMott.
Also it's hilarious and weirdly fitting that one of the only times Vince lets someone keep their gimmick from the indies, it's the friggin wrestling sanitation worker!
My neighbor popped for this at the time when telling me of it. I had to settle for a CGI Macho Midget on Superstars a week or 2 later.
