Jeff Jarrett Talks To TMZ

Video: Jeff Jarrett Talks About WWE HOF Induction, Being Fired On Live TV In 2001

As noted, WWE announced on Monday afternoon that former Intercontinental Champion, and the founder of Impact Wrestling and Global Force Wrestling, Jeff Jarrett, has joined Bill Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz and Ivory as inductees for this year’s class of the WWE Hall Of Fame.

The folks at TMZ Sports caught up with Jarrett to ask him about the WWE Hall Of Fame induction honor.

“Out of all the guys who’ve laced up their boots, there’s less that 200 of us in the Hall of Fame,” Jarrett said. “So, I’m very grateful, I’m very, very humbled, and… this is for my family. My family goes back three generations, so I’m the lucky one that got picked for my family being in the Hall of Fame.”

Jarrett also spoke about the infamous incident where McMahon fired him on live television after acquiring WCW in 2001.

“That night in Panama city, who would’ve thunk (laughs), who would’ve thought these many years later, 17 years later or whatever it may be, that I’m standing here Monday, February the 19th and the announcement is made,” said Jarrett.
