Xanta Klaus

At IYH Dec 1995, Ted Dibiase revealed he bought Xanta Claus.  He had one match on Superstars after that and then he was gone.  Was this always supposed to be a one off character, just for this, or was he supposed to be a regular and they pulled the plug
because it bombed right out of the gate?

Well it wouldn't exactly be a character with a lot of longevity, I'd imagine.  I also can't imagine Ballz Mahoney sticking around the WWF for any length of time at that point, either.
