7. “TNA was a black-eye on the industry in 2016” – Jeff Jarrett

During a recent interview with Newsweek, former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Jarrett discussed TNA’s run in 2016, WWE recognizing other indy promotions & more. Below are the highlights:

On TNA in 2016:

“It was a black-eye on the industry. It wasn’t fruitful for anyone—whether you’re a fan of, a wrestler, an employee. It was a really ugly, unfortunate situation. It wasn’t good for the industry.”

Working with other promotions:

“WWE is the leader of the marketplace. But it’s only in the last three months did they start recognizing other wrestling promotions. For years I’ve been saying that. Just recently we struck up a relationship with Japan’s Pro Wrestling Noah. It’s obvious with independent tag team The Young Bucks and Impact’s The Hardys, there’s some unique stuff being developed—that’s another extension of promotions working together. Part of the vision is to work within the wrestling community. That’s what fans want—dream match-ups.”
