Oliver Humperdink WWF Run

Scott,

Any idea on why the WWF brought Oliver Humperdink aboard in 87 only to have him as a babyface manager?

He seemed miscast to me as he always was an effective heel manager in the territories and really did not do much for Bam Bam Bigelow or Paul Orndorff as his promos as a face manager seemed forced.

​Yeah, Lou Albano had just retired and Vince was like "Let’s bring in another fat, funny babyface manager to replace him, PAL! No one will know the difference!" And then we saw how that turned out.
