Terry Funk question for the blog

Hi Scott,
In the attitude era, why did the WWF decide that Chainsaw Charlie would be a good character for Terry Funk?
Wouldn't Terry Funk (as Terry Funk) have given The New Age Outlaws even more of a rub?

I think that Foley talked about it in his book and said it was Funk's idea, but I'm drawing a blank at the moment otherwise.  Anyone else remember?
