Now remember the landscape of wrestling in 1989 was still cartoony and cheesy, so you have to look at it on that scale. You take the villain from Hogan's latest movie and bill him as a super badass heel who is here to prove things wouldn't turn out like they did in the movie. Simple enough, right? Introducing Savage to the angle was a brilliant move and created for a highly entertaining feud IMO. Deebo wasn't a great wrestler obviously, but he didn't have to be. He just had to look like a beast and no sell people's offense. I thought the tag team cage match they had at Summerslam was pretty damn good.
