Jeff Jarrett recently spoke with the folks from The Tennessean about this Sunday’s big NWA 70th Anniversary show at the Nashville Fairgrounds in Nashville, Tennessee. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On NWA holding their 70th Anniversary show on Sunday at the Nashville Fairgrounds in Tennessee: When we looked at the 70th anniversary show, it was going to be a celebration. It was pretty simple. We both arrived at the fact that the most recent home for (the NWA) was the Asylum in the early 2000s. Then you jump back into the late ’70s and through the 80s, Nashville was definitely a stop on that tour. So it made a lot of sense to hold the show in that arena.
On the Nick Aldis vs. Cody Rhodes best two out of three falls match headlining the show: “The way this came together was just remarkable. When Billy and I started talking about this in early 2018, there wasn’t a rematch to be had. Now it’s possibly the match of the year. For it to be happening on the 70th anniversary show, and for it to be happening in the fairgrounds – obviously since the day the doors opened my family has had a relationship with that building – and then on top of all of it the political situation that has transpired, it’s pretty amazing how it’s come together.”
