Report: Jeff Jarrett’s TNA Future In Question + More

Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Jeff Jarrett’s relationship with TNA is said to be “unclear” following the company not contacting him to work any of the promotion’s One Night Only PPVs.

Jarrett hasn’t been in TNA storylines since 2011 so that he could work with their Ring Ka King promotion in India as well as a project for the SPEED channel; however there has been no movement on a second season of Ring Ka King and the SPEED project went nowhere.

    Why has there been no Rin Ka King second season? The ratings were great.

    • HolsG says:

      Apparently not good enough – got axed after 26ish episodes

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      Had nothing to do with ratings… Ring Ka King was the only wrestling show in India, and unfortunately it's considered very socially taboo over there, sort of how it used to be in Mexico. More than likely it got axed because the company was being pressured to stop airing it.

    He's the founder you bloody asses!!!!!!
    Pritchard (destroying knockouts and x division as well as pissing of current talent) and Hogan bringing 'legends' in (instead of the up and coming high flyers TNA WAS known for is going to destroy the company!

    I sincerely hope JJ will be back SOON, it's his company, he's a good wrestler and he deserves the damn respect!

    • 1Risky1 says:

      you haven't seen TNA for a while, Hogan hasen't bein bringing in legends theres more new guys now than before

      • RealCreative says:

        Yes BUT WTF is Bully the champ and before that Hardy…the belt needs to be on Aries, Roode, Joe etc etc…im sick of Hogan kissing Hardy ass and sure the A&8's storyline needed Bully to be the champ for it to fit BUT its a weak storyline finish after 9 months when u think about it…i expected to see JJ be the man behind A&8's not Bully………dont get me wrong hes a great heel but hes an old face that needs to move over as we seem him week in week out…JJ has been MIA for a couple of years so it would of suited better to have him be the man in charge seeing its known he was the founder etc

    All wheels wrestling would of been cool!

    that sucks i was hoping that Jeff Jarrett was the leader of Aces & 8's that would be epic , and a good reason as to why they keep attacking Angle.

    I love when everybody says to give Somoa joe the belt. Why so the rating will plummet ? A new viewer to the show would see that dude holding the world title and change the channel…and put the strap on aries ?? The guys a great wrestler but half the referees in tna are bigger than him. Roode would be a decent choice for champ, but Bullys fine for now and why do so many people wanna see jarrett back? I didnt even want to see jeff jarrett when he was in his prime…

    • OldManEaston says:

      I disagree about Joe. If booked right, he is certainly, and at one time especially, was as marketable, if not more marketable of a champion that Bully Ray. Joe, just happens to hold the distinction for biggest ppv buyrates in TNA history for his feud with Kurt Angle, and it takes two to get there, not one guy. The issue of course is that TNA did poorly by Joe for so long that he is not much of a draw now, but it is fixable. All small guys like Aries or AJ are always a work in progress or transition at best. They can certainly be champions and even excel, but it takes a lot of work and very careful booking, so they are not a natural choice if you have relatively young guys like, Joe, Roode, and Storm to work with who also have some size and who can also actually also have good matches. Bully Ray and hardy are kind of the lazy choices, in that he are relatively over, and have somewhat of a name value, although outside of WWE, it is clearly not as much as TNA thinks. Bully is even more limited that Hardy in that he is not as good of a wrestler and has no appeal whatsoever as a face. It honestly nearly ruined the new and improved Bully Ray when they dabbled in face land with him. He went from stale fat tag team Bubba, to Calfzilla, to bland Hogan and friends, back to Meh, he's the leader of Aces and Eights, because its the only way they could go to remotely salvage the angle. Instead of maybe a really interesting Bully Ray as stand alone polarizing champion during his initial re found ECW attitude.

      As far as Jarrett, I agree. He could go off into the sunset for all I care. His long reign as champion and his ever present domination of that top spot is one of the things that held TNA back for a very long time. There were so many more possibilities that were infinitely more fresh, such as Monty Brown, Abyss in his prime, Joe, Ron Killings, Christopher Daniels, AJ. Throw in Christian Cage and Angle and you had the makings of something that could have set TNA apart for the good. Jarrett always had to be in the picture though, even back then, and then throw in Sting and it became too much WCW nostalgia and it hurt the company.

    • Peckar says:

      Size is an old, out-dated argument. WWE and TNA are aware of that. Daniel Bryan, CM Punk and Austin Aries are all wrestlers at the top of there game, inside and outside the ring. As for Jarrett, well his offense inside the ring has never been that entertaining, but he always makes up for it with great mic work and can sell a feud like no other. He is still a good seller anyhow.

    This is just a news story without a real source, and a weird assumption. Maybe Jarrett is taking time off (the guy is 45 years old) and even if he was planning a return, they probably wouldn't want him to show up at a one off PPV. They have enough legacy "stars" as it is with Hogan & Sting. Best to keep him fresh in case they are all gone in a few years.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      funny to keep a 45 year old whos been in the business damn near 30 years "fresh" in case they dont have any "legacy" stars..there comes a point where you need to rely on your new and current talent, and if you cant build up anyone big enough to do that maybe its time to shut the doors..

    The words jeff jarrett and great mic skills shouldnt even be in the same sentence ….
