What was the reaction when Robbie of The Highlanders tag-team from WWE back in March of 2008 showed up to an IMPACT Wrestling taping?
During a recent installment of his My World podcast, the founder of the promotion, Jeff Jarrett, told the story.
Featured below is an excerpt from the show.
“I don’t, and the reason being is that there were so many things going on. In 2008, and this was WrestleMania season, I remember hearing the buzz. They were like, ‘Hey man. This WWE talent is out in the crowd.’ I said, ‘Why isn’t he back here?’ They said, ‘He doesn’t want to come back here.’ I couldn’t put that together…I do remember being asked, and I said, ‘Of course you’re going to show him on camera. What is the downside?’ I didn’t think the guy would put his job at risk by coming to a show, so I thought, ok, if he’s going to be here, he’s at least willing to take the risk, or he has taken the risk. Does he think we’re going to shoot around him? He knew the industry. I hate that he got fired, but that’s all post mortem.”
