The article confirms he is still a shareholder in TNA…
- Jeff Jarrett recently spoke with The Tennessean about Global Force Wrestling (they are scheduled to have another announcement today) and more. Here are the highlights…
On The World Changing Through Technology: "Our world is getting so much smaller with technology and we live off our phones, so information is shared instantaneously," Jarrett said. "That's right up wrestling fans' alley, so they can swap stories from around the world. Wrestling, I wouldn't say it left mainstream over the last 10 years, but it certainly wasn't as prominent as it was in the late '90s. I think it's really about ready to step back into the mainstream."
On His View on Wrestling: "Wrestling is a form of entertainment that translates globally and it always has," Jarrett said. "The American wrestler has been traveling to Japan since the '60s. All through Mexico professional wrestling has been very big — it's huge in Germany. It's taken on a new life in India. So language has never been an issue or a barrier in professional wrestling, which is a great thing. Everybody can understand professional wrestling."
- Jarrett remains a large shareholder in TNA, but has no input on the daily operation of TNA. Jarrett noted that he doesn't think it is a conflict to start a new promotion while still invested in TNA. A spokesperson for TNA confirmed Jarrett as a shareholder, but would not comment on the Global Force Wrestling promotion.
