Soon-to-be WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett recently spoke with the folks from The Times-Picayune for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On where Global Force Wrestling is at right now and how his health is: “I’m working on some international projects as we speak. It is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best I’ve been in years. Feel great. And not just physically. Mentally and emotionally and spiritually as well. I’m really excited about the next chapter of my career. The international wrestling scene has so much growth opportunity – Asia, South America, Africa, Europe, all around the world.”
On working with Owen Hart: “Everybody has a funny story or a recounting of a rib, but the thing that I want people to never forget about is the kind of human being he was. The integrity. He was an incredible father and husband. Co-worker. Peer. He could put a smile on your face and he absolutely could go toe-to-toe with anybody in the industry. We had a kinship. We were both second-generation wrestlers. The respect I’ve got for that guy and just what he stood for, that’s what I like people to remember and that’s what I like to talk about when we talk about Owen’s legacy.”
On the Monday Night Wars: “What a great time to be not only in the business, but as a fan. You had wrestling four nights a week and then the monthly pay-per-views. It went to 12 a year for each organization. All the talent and the stars that were created in the 90s, it was truly a remarkable time. This was before social media. It was a real unique time where cable television dominated the landscape.”
