Re: What did you think of Jeff Jarret?
People say he's overrated, but if anything, he's underrated. Perhaps arguably the most. The guy has done so much for the business, but is usually viewed in such a bad light. Why? Because he did everything he could to make it to top even after being held down?
He played a great heel as a country singer and when he knew it was time to be taken seriously, he changed his image and grew a mean streak. Sadly, he was never given the chance. Even to be a world title contender in Vince's company because a certain top star wouldn't let bygones be bygones so understandably, he jumped ship to find better success.
People always claim how horrible the last couple of years WCW were, but I'll tell you this: I, personally, was NEVER disappointed with a Jeff Jarrett match. While the booking was crap, Jarrett always delivered.
Over the years, whether it was against Ramon, Michaels, Edge, Shamrock, Sting, Page, Booker, Killings, Raven, Christian, Angle, etc., Double J would put on a good show. People trash him now because its the cool thing to do, but after his career is all said and done, people (I hope anyway) will finally start to appreciate the man for the great performer he truly was.
