Jeff Jarrett Talks GFW’s Future, Possibly Working For WWE Moving Forward

April 3, 2018 | Posted by Larry Csonka

Jeff Jarrett was recently interviewed by Wrestling Inc., here are the highlights…

On GFW’s Future: “Global Force Wrestling is something that right now I have two projects, some smaller ones here and there with all kinds of different stuff. If you were to ask me what am I working on, it’s international projects. I believe, especially over my experience over the last few years, is that international is where the business is at. In North America […] you have an enormous standard-bearer in the USA Network and RAW three hours on Monday and SmackDown two hours and then of course everything else that goes with the brand. So it’s tough, I’d be the first to tell you that. And Ring Of Honor with Sinclair,” Jarrett said. “So international is what I’m working on, and yes those were some great tapings, but a promotion is more than a television show. It’s obviously live events, merchandise and licensing, and the big component is, you can call it digital, but nowadays you the term is streaming. What’s the platform you’re gonna be on? How are you gonna get it to market? How are you gonna market it? And what is gonna set you apart? So those are the kinds of things we’re working on in the international scene.”

On Possibly Working For WWE Moving Forward: “I can tell you the only conversations I’ve had with the WWE and all the officials are directly related to the Hall of Fame… That’s all the discussions have been, and I’ll go back to… ‘Never say never.’ That’s how I look at it,” he said. “Not just about me going back on whatever role or capacity, it’s just this business. Who would’ve thought me and you would be talking in March about the WWE Hall of Fame? That’s the real, real fun part about this industry, you never know what’s gonna happen.”
