Has Jiu Jitsu Evolved?

Has the system of Jiu Jitsu evolved to deal with strong aggresive type grapplers, particularly wrestlers? Has it dealt with the worse case scenario for people who practise Jiu Jitsu on how to approach an extremely strong person who just smashes through guards and power out moves(sweeps, submission and pinning positions). I say worse case scenario because Martial Arts techniques in general should answer all the possibilities of a worse case scenario(is the guy extremely strong, fast, and does he knows enough just to pass by to keep him safe but using brute force). Which therefore lays out foundation on how to deal with opponents in general. And Im just asking has Jiu Jitsu(people who practise and the system itself) confronted these questions and answered them. Just want to hear peoples response and your experiences of dealing with strong wrestlers in the gym and feel frustrated by it, so forth. Only constructive criticism please no keyboard warrioring. Theres a video online(most likely youtube) where during a seminar hosted by Straight Blast Gym theres different Jiu JItsu black belts and people can ask them anything. Well one particular black belt was John Kavanagh addresing a problem by black belts on how to deal with this olympic wrestler thats just a beast at there gym, it pretty much addresses my post. I for the love god cant find it, If anybody can find it please post it. Thanks
