Jarrett 1995

> Your recent discussions of 1995 WWF got me thinking about IYH2. The card was built around JJ similar to the Canadian Stampede (where the harts went over everyone).

I’m far from a Jarrett apologist, but I have to think there was some more mileage in that character, and taking the belt off him for hbk to transition it to Dean Douglas seems like a waste.

Vinnie was apparently convinced the angle was going to legit make both JJ and Roadie into giant stars. I was writing about it while doing the RAW retro reviews on the Network, and week by week in the Observer it talks about how Vince is all in on this super hot angle he’s got planned.
