At the beginning Neidhart was supposed to be the charisma guy with the interesting look, and Bret was seen as a pretty bland technical wrestler. But Neidhart showed he was pretty limited. When they first arrived in the WWF, Neidhart and Jimmy were splitting the promos about 50-50 and Bret said almost nothing and was horrible at even that. Neidhart was going really stereotypical '70s promos, kinda shouting and saying "daddy" and then had the trademark cackle at the end. After a year or two, Jimmy was handling the promos almost entirely, Neidhart would get a couple lines and the laugh, and Bret would continue to stare blankly behind the shades.  He was clearly uncomfortable with public speaking, then developed into being somewhat competent on the mic in the early '90s, and then by '97 I just thought he was phenomenal as far as "real" promos went as opposed to wrestling hype, although I know a lot of people unfairly say that he was never good.
