What was the deal with Bret in ’95? Was there anyone at that level in worse feuds? Was it really the clique just ruining his life? Did Vince really have no clue what to do with him? If it was the clique, wouldn’t Bret have had the power to be like, "Nah, I’m not going to go into a feud over my own jacket."?
I dunno, I think Bret wanted to prove that he could take that stuff and get it over, and he kind of did. Plus he got to work with great workers like Hakushi and Lafitte, and he always loved working with Lawler no matter what. His book doesn’t make it sound like he was particularly miserable about it or anything.
