Jeff Jarrett, who co-founded TNA Wrestling with his father in 2002, announced this afternoon via Twitter that he has parted ways with the promotion.

After being written off television in December 2011, Jarrett maintained behind-the-scenes roles with TNA Wrestling. In 2012, he oversee Ring Ka King, a short-lived satellite promotion that was based in India. More recently, he helped handle the promotion’s creative division.

As a performer, Jarrett is one of TNA’s most successful wrestlers in history. From 2002 to 2006, he held the NWA World Heavyweight Championship on six occasions for a combined 1,006 days.

    Errrr… what?

    Even the founder doesn’t want anything to do with TNA anymore!!! Can you say “final nail in the coffin”?

    As much as it pissed me off that he constantly put the belt on himself back in the early days (which was one of the reasons the X Division title was always considered the better prize), what he and his father did by creating TNA, was brilliant. Early TNA was so highly regarded, and many people hoped it would rival WWE one day, but once Carter got creative control she looked like she was moving forward with big plans, but ended up stifling the company.
    Respect to Jeff for what he created.

    I feel like TNA is going nowhere very very fast.
