Jeff Jarrett recently spoke on his latest My World podcast about his SmackDown guest appearance.
“All of a sudden, it was kind of a last minute deal. They asked if I would come down.”
“My old buddy Shinsuke, I got to be in a little deal with him and (Rick) Boogs. We reminisced, me and Rick, about the last time we actually chatted because we’re both pickers. We both play the guitar, so we were chatting about that, but that was fun.”
“I got to reconnect with a lot of folks. It was great to see so many folks. A lot of changes. It goes without saying a lot of changes in every department in WWE across the board, so there were some folks that were no longer with the company that I found out about. Change is good. At the very top of the list, for success you have to have change and turnover.”
“It’s an unfortunate incident, but life happens. It was great to reconnect in so many ways. It was fun to do the pre-tape,”
On his match against Effy at GCW this week:
“Never in wildest dreams did I think that maybe the hottest babyface on the independent scene, certainly I believe Game Changer who has somewhat of a stigma with the death match, just as their branding they are so much more than that, but Effy coming to the ring to Elton John’s ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’, everybody in the building was standing and singing,”
“I thought about it going in last night, but he is the most marketable talent on the Game Changer roster. He connects with the audience. He’s not a seasoned vet, and I don’t know his complete body of work, but he knows what he’s doing in the ring. He knows how to connect with the audience. I can’t tell you how impressed from a promoter, booker, and marketer point of view I am from that side of it.”
