Jeff Jarrett Says The Next Breakout Star In Pro Wrestling Will Be Someone Who Has Great Promo Skills

WWE Hall of Famer and AEW Star Jeff Jarrett, who is also their Director of Business Development, made an appearance on an episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, where he spoke about a number of topics such as how pro wrestlers who want to learn and get better honing their skills need to come up and ask the legends and the veterans as well as how everyone has a certain level of charisma, but it is those pro wrestlers who want to be coached are the ones who will be able to get their charisma out.

Jeff Jarrett said:

“What I’ve found out through my journey is that guys that want to learn will come up and ask. Guys that don’t want to learn, don’t. The minute I go up and try to give unsolicited advice, for whatever reason, it never goes the right way. I have found, and there have been a few, that ability to convey emotion…here’s the world we live in, I think it goes way outside of wrestling. Kids being coachable or wanting to be produced are so few and far between. Nobody can produce themselves. It doesn’t work. Everyone has a certain level of charisma, it’s the ones who know how to get the charisma out. You have different guys to have breakout years and moments. I’m not going to sit here and say I define the next level, because the next level goes with ratings, merchandise, YouTube views, selling more tickets, it’s all of the above.”

WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett also spoke about how the next breakout star in pro wrestling will be a person who has great promo skills rather than great wrestling skills.

Jeff Jarrett said:

“The guy who is truly the breakout, it’s going to be by his mouth. You’re not going to see a new move that gets somebody over. It’s somebody who breaks through the crowd, but it’s going to be by their verbal skills. That’s what I wish guys would hone in on and take a step back and say, ‘I have to be a better talker. If I can be a better talker, that’s going to keep me at the top of the card.’ Who is that going to be? That’s a great question.”
