Re: What did you think of Jeff Jarret?
Forgive me if someone else has mentioned this, but wasn't Jeff at one point considered a new Ric Flair?
I didn't really like him when I watched him. Watching old Raws lately I can remember him debuting in WWF in late 1997 and he had some shoot interviews, it was an interesting dynamic and I never knew about it, but in hindsight they are just lax. Watching at the time I probably would have been excited, but knowing what came after doesn't put them in a good light. He was a good heel and a good wrestler, but I never liked him in WWF or WCW. Especially not in WCW actually, he didn't seem like someone who could lead the company the way Flair/Sting/NWO had.
Now though, looking back on his entire career, he wasn't that bad. He was a good wrestler who had a lot of wrong place wrong time moments, and one or two right place right time moments.
I do think he will be remembered most for his TNA work though.
