We noted before how Jeff Jerrett had revealed in an interview that he was contacted by WWE regarding Hall Of Fame back in January this year and he accepted their offer immediately.

Jerrett was recently interviewed by KENS-5, the CBS affiliate of San Antonio, Texas area where among other things, he revealed his initial reaction to being offered a spot in the Hall Of Fame.

According to the former TNA Star, he got a message from the company on a Sunday morning but it did not shock him at the time because in entertainment industry you never have weekends off:

It was in early January, it was on a Sunday morning. I got a text that said, “Can you chat for a couple of minutes?” In the wrestling industry and the entertainment industry, weekends you never have off. So getting a text on a Sunday morning didn’t really shock me. Me, my wife and kids were getting ready for church and I went up to my office and had a conversation.

Though continuing on the topic, the future Hall of Famer said that he got shocked when he learned the implication behind the text because he didn’t expect to get such an offer on a Sunday morning:

I was shocked because I didn’t think that on a Sunday morning I’d be getting that call in early January. But that’s our industry, that’s the uniqueness of it. We’re obviously not true sports and we’re an aggressive, physical form of entertainment. We’re a hybrid and always have been and always will be. We do things bigger and louder and prouder and boisterous and everything that goes with it.
