Jeff Jarrett spoke with the Orlando Sentinel about his return to TNA Impact Wrestling. “[The first set of tapings] is going to be an exciting few days,” Jarrett said. “The one thing fans can expect is change.”
Jarrett indicated that he will not be returning to an on-camera role. “I’m a promoter and a businessman first, and I’ll have a lot of responsibility on my shoulders just doing that,” he said. “We have fantastic talent already here and I’m very excited to be a promoter, matchmaker, booker – whatever you want to call it – and a TV producer. Never say never, but I have zero plans to go on camera.” Read the full interview at OrlandoSentinel.com.
Powell’s POV: From a creative standpoint, creative was the least of the concerns with TNA in 2016. Some change is good and I am looking forward to seeing what they have in mind, perhaps starting with the official announcement of a name change. Jarrett also confirmed that Universal Studios will be the exclusive home to all taping events in 2017.
