Jimmy Hart

What was the reason for Jimmy Hart turning face and becoming linked to Hogan? Its always seemed odd to me, considering Harts general nature and Hogan never having a manager up until then during his reign.

Because Jimmy was always Hogan's real life manager and they wanted to "out" their relationship on the show for whatever reason.  Never made sense to me, either and I don't think the fans really bought Hogan needing a manager or Hart's face turn, but there was a lot of stuff going on that year that didn't really make sense.
