Global Force Wrestling founder Jeff Jarrett recently appeared on Interactive Wrestling Radio to promote the company. Here are the highlights.
On when will GFW’s TV series AMPED be airing on American TV:
“I will be sharing that soon! That is all I will say. I was in New York yesterday. That was one of the meetings. I would love to announce it right now but it would not be productive for all involved. But, we’re getting there. I’ll say that much!”
On possibly wrestling in GFW:
“In-ring performing, obviously, was my first love. But, I am 100% dedicated to wearing my promoter hat. This past summer, on the strictly Global Force shows, I did not wrestle. But, it started with the United Kingdom shows. The promoters, quite frankly, said “If we’re going to do this, it is not an option. You’ve got to wrestle!” They seem to believe, for whatever wacky reason, that there is value in me wrestling. I still enjoy it (wrestling). Am I in my prime? (laughs) I’m not joking or kidding anybody. But, I’m really proud of my last few matches in WXW. Heading forward, I’m putting on the tights and lacing up the boots several more times. But, strictly Global Force Wrestling? I’m devoted to being a promoter and not wrestling.”
On Chyna’s passing:
“I love wrestling fans. I was a wrestling fan before I was a wrestler. But, they love to complain, argue, and make something of nothing. There was a lot of sensationalistic that people read into. It is unfortunate, Joanie’s situation. I don’t think there’s anything I could say that hasn’t been said over the past week. Trail-blazer. Kicked down doors. But, the one thing I can say is, in the series of matches I had with her, Chyna… got it. She wasn’t spectacular with her skill set. But, what she did, she did very, very good and it speaks volumes for the talent that she had for being that persona. She was as important part of DX as any member that had ever been there. It spoke volumes. The Attitude Era? She was one of those talents that really defined it. Someone interviewed me over in Germany. They brought up my last WWF match was against her and Joanie’s last match, ever, was against me in TNA. Our paths had crossed multiple times. My condolences go to all of her family.”
