The former four times WCW World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Jarrett has been one of the most groundbreaking wrestlers and personnel in professional wrestling history.
Jarrett first shocked the world when he formed the Total Nonstop Action 2002 one year after the death of the World Championship Wrestling. He actually did the unthinkable when TNA Wrestling managed to co-exist with WWE parallel.
Jeff Jarrett Talks The Proudest Moment Of His Career
He managed to sign the biggest names in professional wrestling for TNA such as Sting, Kurt Angle, Hulk Hogan, the nWo, and more. But the fight with WWE could not continue with as it was overtaken by Dixie Carter. All the hard works of the Double J Jeff Jarrett went down the drain with some countable mistakes, and they were enough to kill the show.
The World of wrestling was left literally shocked when WWE inducted Jeff Jarrett into the WWE Hall of Fame. Everyone was waiting to hear from the Double J in the WWE Hall of Fame but he did not speak about any rivalry with the promotion.
Recently the former six times NWA World Heavyweight Champion appeared on the Insight With Chris Van Vliet where he spoke about the proudest moment of his career. He said;
“The perseverance. Because this is not an easy industry at all. I’m one of 5 kids and I was the only one that got into the business. Many folks have said that my father being the promoter for you is either the best or the worst. I agree, it is both a blessing and a curse. But I’ve always loved it, got a passion for it.
“I was always fascinated by it as a young kid. Not just the product, but everything that goes around it. But I’ve just celebrated 35 years in the business. Whether it was USWA, WCCW, WWF, WCW, TNA Global Force, Hall of Fame all of that. When I look back, the perseverance and the drive, it’s up to me to get up and put on my work boots.”
He also named the things he wished he knew before starting TNA;
“I started when I was 35 years old, that’s a young businessman for a startup company. It’s one show a week, but it is consuming. In 2002, we didn’t have the tools or capabilities. I used to say phone calls wouldn’t accomplish what a face to face would do. Video calls have somewhat advanced it though. Time management is something in the early days of TNA. It wasn’t like it was back then. Delegation would be number 2 and not to get hung up on single decisions would be number 3.”
