After some time in Jim Crockett Promotions / World Championship Wrestling, where he was known as Captain Mike Rotunda and Michael Wallstreet, he returned to the World Wrestling Federation in 1991 as the evil tax collector from Washington D.C., Irwin R. Schyster.

With his new Tag Team Partner The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase he formed ‘Money Inc.’ and they won the WWF Tag Team titles multiple times, before DiBiase retired due to an injury and former his own Heel Stable “The Million Dollar Corporation”, which I.R.S. was a member of, till he left the WWF for WCW in 1995.
