Update on What Allegedly Caused Negotiations Between TNA Wrestling & Toby Keith to Fall Apart

- Here is the latest on what happened between Jeff Jarrett & Toby Keith and TNA Wrestling in regards to reports that Jarrett * Keith were looking to buy the promotion.
Jeff Jarrett had reportedly put a deal together with Panda Energy's Bob Carter (the father of Dixie Carter). Bob Carter and Keith were to meet to finalize plans of the deal, and when they met, Carter did want to sell the company, but had one stipulation prior to making the deal. That was that Dixie Carter remain as on-screen TNA President as well as retain some power within the company. Keith did not want to make any deal that included "creative limitations," and that is where the negotiations fell apart.
From there, Jeff Jarrett and Toby Keith took a step back. They realized that they could build their own company from the ground up; and that led to Jeff Jarrett leaving TNA in December.
