Actually Avalanche was dropped, because WWF threatened legal action over similarities to the Earthquake character.

Sad to see what happened with Tentas career. I do not believe the Luger is really stronger than Tenta, also in this match Luger looks unusually big ..! but two of the best professional wrestler are here in the ring.

I guess. It's not the way that I would have used him, but as you said, to each his own.

Then he became John Tenta after being kicked out of the Dungeon of Doom in May of 96 and became a face feuding with Big Bubba, still he did just fine for himself and the fans still seem to care for him from the reactions he got. Still not a big deal.

John Tenta, as the Earthquake, once had a feud against Hulk Hogan that lasted the better part of a year. When he first joined WCW, he was billed as the Avalanche, booked as a monster heel, and placed in a feud with still. Then, the Three Faces of Fear broke up and they turned him into the Shark instead. From there, he was never quite taken serious.

Still, it probably was best for him to go to WCW. The WWF wouldn't have used him more than a year or two more anyway and he received a better paycheck in WCW.
