Jeff Jarrett Recalls Pitching The Ultimate Warrior To Join TNA In 2002

Jeff Jarrett discussed pitching The Ultimate Warrior to join TNA in 2002 during a recent edition of My World with Jeff Jarrett. “I had a couple of conversations with Jim [Hellwig], but very top-level. And to put it in context, I had never done business with him. Our paths really never crossed in WWE. I was not at the WWE at that time. So, me and Jim’s paths never really crossed other than I met him on Thanksgiving Day in 1985. He was in there with Sting in the territory at that time. So, he was more of a business colleague and a friend of my dad’s in this relationship. I reached out and had some conversations, but my dad was doing all the true business negotiations and he was asking me different questions. [Warrior] was a tremendous name value and going into June of 2002, we were only looking at 26 shows, even if you made every show. So, Jim was only a four, five, six, or whatever, ‘Hey man, come give us a try.’ That was one of the first pitches, but I gave that pitch to a lot of folks over the first year, whether it was Curt Hennig, Rick Steiner, Hacksaw, or The Road Warriors. We’re not asking you to sign an exclusive deal. We’re not asking you anything other than we’re starting a company, do you want to come work a few shows? He obviously had the name value, so that was about the extent of my conversation with Jim.”

On David Arquette’s time in the wrestling business: “In my office, up here in my man cave so to speak, I got a picture of the triple cage, an action shot of David. I’m blessed I always got to look at the business through the promoter’s eyes. You don’t have to. You can choose to do this. I’ll say this, David, nobody held a gun to his head and said, ‘You got to do this.’ He wanted to do this. So he came into this business. He didn’t have creative control. He didn’t call the shots, so I’ve never thrown shade on him. I’ve never looked down on him. Look, he did what he was asked to do and did it pretty damn good. Now fast forward 20 years and he has this affection for it, and we text back and forth and stay connected. I mean, for what he did and the incident that I’m still not completely clear but I saw him at All In and we hugged. ‘Dude, great to see you!’ I joked with him through the years, the only reason Jeff Jarrett’s name got mentioned on David Letterman was because David Arquette said it. I got a lot of respect for Dave personally that he took a scenario 20 years ago, and now fast forward, he doesn’t have to be doing this, but it’s pretty cool. The documentary and then RJ [City]. He dug into it. He dug into this industry, and I’m happy for him.”
