NWA owner Billy Corgan raised eyebrows recently when he told fans not to watch if they didn’t like his bookings, and Jeff Jarrett opted to weigh in on the situation. Speaking on his My World podcast, Jarrett expressed his philosophy regarding a promotion’s obligations and best practices when interacting with the fanbase (via Wrestling Inc). He spoke about the competitive nature of the contemporary industry and how he views the proper approach as beenficial to a company. You can read a few highlights from Jarrett and listen to the complete episode below.

On maintaining a good relationship with the audience: “Whether it’s Jerry Lawler, Christine Jarrett, Jerry Jarrett, or Vince McMahon, they all said it in their own way, and they would essentially say that the best promoter or the best decision in promotion is [to] listen to the people and give them what they want. It doesn’t really get any simpler than that. When you come out the gate and alienate one fan, I don’t get that. I don’t get that really under any circumstance.”

On the modern field of the industry and how that informs booking decisions: “This day and age with YouTube and wrestling on seven, five, six nights a week, as a promoter, you don’t really give them what you like, you give them what they want. That’s black ink versus red ink, to me.”
