Most of his face single matches from January 98 - April 98 and September 99 - December 99 are pretty good actually. His matches with Flair, Hennig, Sting, Benoit, and Jarrett are pretty solid (his Goldberg match had the makings of a good match until the f*** finish). He did have a few good heel matches in between but they just felt uninspired which you can partly blame Bret for but the booking should also shoulder some of that as the matches often just broke down into screwy finishes and Bret's character was just undeveloped. He also just worked an unusually light schedule in terms of televised matches and the ones he was booked for just weren't setup to be that memorable. Like half of his matches in his first run were against the likes of Brian Adams. It's a shame, he had the ability to still be a top level worker and showed that several times. I just wish WCW would have given him more chances to be that.

Bret working with more of the younger guys would have been tremendous. Him and Jericho, Rey, Eddie back then all would have been awesome. He had a short TV match with Finlay that would have been a sweet feud too.
