I know dozens, even hundreds of guys have come through WWF/WWE who the company has dropped the ball with...and I get that some super giants like Khali weren't very good in the ring...but man, how'd they end up wasting Kurrgan? I liked The Oddities, but monster Kurrgan when he first arrived was the real deal. Would've been a great world champ.
There was an interview with Don Callis talking about hsi time in the WWF as Jackyl and how his character led the Truth Commission and then brought in the Oddities. I don't remember all the details, but the one thing that stood out was Vince (Russo? McMahon?) saw Kurrgan dance at a party. He then made him dance in wrestling. I believe Callis said it was a rule, don't do something in front of Vince you don't want to do in front of an audience. So that explains why he transitioned into the Oddities (I know there's more info).
yep, it came down to his ringwork. but I don’t think he was in the business for a huge amount of time before wwe threw him on international television. if he could’ve refined his skills he definitely had the size.
Don Callis, imo, was the real talent from the truth commission that got lost in the heap.
