Kamala joined a tag team with the “Wild Samoan” Sika in February 1987. During the same month, he began a battle with Jake Roberts, who constantly exploited Kamala’s alleged fear of snakes.

Kamala abruptly left the WWF once more in September 1987 because of pay issues.

He later performed for the Memphis-based United States Wrestling Association, where he feuded with Jerry Lawler and won the USWA Unified World Heavyweight Championship four times.

Kamala rejoined the WWF in April 1992, under the control of Kim Chee and Harvey Wippleman. He unsuccessfully challenged Randy Savage for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship in June 1992. Throughout mid-1992, he largely wrestled on house suggests, towards ordinary combatants along with The Undertaker, Bret Hart, The Texas Tornado, and The Ultimate Warrior.

Kamala was disqualified by The Undertaker at SummerSlam in August 1992. Later, Kamala claimed he was paid $13,000 for the fight, while The Undertaker was paid $500,000. This assertion was challenged by professional wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer, who stated, “I’m not saying he’s lying, but that’s hard to believe […] for there to be that big of a disparity wouldn’t make any sense.” In the first-ever televised coffin match, Kamala was defeated by The Undertaker at Survivor Series in November 1992.

In January 1993, Kim Chee and Wippleman began mistreating Kamala, prompting him to leave them and join Reverend Slick. Slick set out to “humanize” Kamala, which resulted in a series of skits in which he exposed him to pastimes like ten-pin bowling. Throughout early 1993, Kamala fought with Kim Chee. He began a run of matches with Bam Bam Bigelow in March 1993. The bout was supposed to take place at WrestleMania IX, but it was canceled due to time limitations.

Kamala was announced as a competitor in the 1994 Royal Rumble Match in December 1993. During the fight, however, the broadcasters announced that Virgil had replaced him as an alternate combatant.
