A roundtable to remember Pt. II
With less than a year of camera time as Lawler’s manager under his belt, Hart rarely had interview time to shine in his role, as the King was in his prime as one of the greatest heel promo guys in the business at that point. Most of their promos together saw Lawler boast and brag for a few minutes, with Hart relegated to nodding, smiling, carrying the CWA World belt and occasionally chiming in, “That’s right, baby!” But with Lawler not around in early 1980, Jarrett removed Hart’s muzzle, and the young manager was off to the races while his champion stud was put out to pasture for the rest of the year.
Because everything had been built around Lawler heading into 1980, Jarrett decided to rebuild the promotion around the manager and a stable of heels in 1980.
