Jarrett didn't stay a face for long though, as he quickly transitionned into the sneaky 5th member of the 4 Horsemen, trying to take Mongo's spot and wife, which was a fun program. But yeah, Jarrett first coming up as a *face* after years of chickenshit heel in WWF and playing the "I'm wrestling tradition" card was a bomb.

If you watch the match against Bubba Rogers, he was getting a monster hometown babyface pop. Double J chants at the beginning and he was getting big reactions during the finish for the Figure-4 tease, finally punching Jimmy Hart and beating Rogers by dropkicking the megaphone in the face. The promo with the weird "Ho oh Ho" laughs was weird. Jarrett's problem I think he wrestles like a babyface and is a really compelling babyface, but he is unlikeable outside the ring (character/promo). They could have hid him in a tag team to avoid that.
