Koko's last work on WWF tours was the weeks leading into Mania doing jobs for Skinner. He spent the rest of 1993 working in USWA and came back for a short run after Mania X.

You know you're in trouble when you're jobbing to Skinner of all people.

I do remember his brief return after WM 10. He had a match with Owen IIRC.

Skinner is gone after Mania, too.

"OK"

"Cool."

This may sound unreal, but the Undertaker probably was one of the top 3 hardest working guys at Mania 9. Yes, the match with Gonzales stunk, but not because of him. He's doing everything in his power to get something watchable, to polish a turd, if you will.

Starting with Kamala in 92, this was a very dark(no pun intended) time in his career opponent wise.

I feel they were still testing the waters with Undertaker as a face from 92-94. He sorta' had his own little world of fighting freaks and weirdos; rarely mingling with other faces and steering clear of any title (on TV, at least).

I don't think it was until late 1996 or so that he began to break out of that shell and mess with "regular" wrestlers. His feud with Mankind; then Vader; is probably what brought helped him cross back over.

What a timeline for Taker.

Berzerker > Kamala > Giant Gonzales > Mr. Hughes > Yokozuna > FakeTaker > Yokozuna Again > The Million Dollar Corporation (including I.R.S., King Kong Bundy, and Kama) > King Mabel

The Diesel feud FINALLY gives him something that isn't a bullshit angle or a freak of nature to work with, and then the 6-months working with Mick Foley really brings the best out of him.

After watching everything I can from 1990 through the Spring of 1993, I'd strongly consider Fred Ottman one of the worst wrestlers of the era. Ignoring his undeserved push as Hogan's buddy, the guy is awful, and I can't think of any good matches he had. Hell, I can't think of many matches that were just "average" (2-stars). His work is light, he can't bump or sell, and he had little personality that translated to terrible promos.
