I'm sick of all these so-called internet smarts always puttin' down Jeff Jarrett. He is the reason why TNA has stayed afloat this long. He is a great heel and is the real draw of the promotion. I caint undersatnd why you guys think he is so detrimental to the future of the promortion. Name at least 1, yes ONE, bad match this man has had. He always gives his all and makes the matches exciting and dramatic. And I am serious, this aint no parody post to piss off CRZ. Remember the match he had with Shawn Michaels? Or how about his fued with Mongo Mcmichael? Everytime I go to the NASCAR events, all I hear is about is TNA and Double J. He deserves to be the focal point of TNA, and the dream match will end up being Double J vs. Samoa Joe. Planet Jarrett is the place to be baby, and yall better be ready for the the new Monday Night wars, cause Jarrett will proove once and for all that he is pound for pound the best wrestler today.

Hey, Bruce Mitchell wants to talk to you.

    This is where I need your help, dear reader, to complete my Quest. Do you know someone who faithfully follows Jeff Jarrett's career? Someone who's excited about Jeff Jarrett stirring the pot again in TNA and wants to know why he's aligned with Rhyno? Someone who looks forward to him regaining his beloved NWA Title? If you do, I want to hear about it. Send your accounts of real Jeff Jarrett fans to brucemitchell@pwtorch.com (if you can find one.)

The only reason I subscribe to the Torch VIP is for the latest on Double J. Rhino and JJ together was a shocker at the last PPV, but it just prooves how savvy JJ is. He had us all fooled, and wang bang he reveals Rhino was his man all along. I can't wait to see how this story develops.

Well, duh, doesn't the new heel in town always align himself with Jeff Jarrett at first? Any chance he could allow himself to step out of the spotlight for a little while?

And did he really need to hold the NWA World Title for nearly a year this last time? And the guy who beat him, AJ Styles, was beaten by Raven soon thereafter, and you bet your ass Jarrett's using his "shocking" alignment with Rhino to insinuate himself right back into the NWA World Title picture.

Damn, I hate nepotism. That's why I'm enjoying not having Triple H on my television while I can.

Now wait right there dreckodolphin, you can't tell me you knew Jarrett and Rhino were going to end up the way they did. He held the belt so long not because of nepotism, but because he was the most recognizable star on in the promotion. You're just like the rest of these haters, open your eyes and look at the facts, Do you really thin Aj Styles could carry the promotion? He couln't do a money makin promo to save his mothers life. And of course Raven is going down. He can't even do a drop kick these days for chistsakes. He carried Nash to an excellent match, and you still talk your diddly-do. We'll see who has the highest quarter hour ratings you SLAPNUT!

Uh-huh. I could probably come up with a response to that post, but you probably embarrassed yourself enough already by calling someone a "slapnut". Besides, there's a sign posted asking me not to feed the trolls.

I've only seen three or four TNA PPV's (and a few episodes of Impact) and part of the reason I don't have any interest in it is Jeff Jarrett. I didn't find him entertaining in the WWF (except when he was teamed with Owen), didn't find him entertaining in WCW, and have better things to do with my money than order a TNA PPV to see JJJ. When TNA is on Spike I'll probably tape it and fast forward to what I want to watch (like I do RAW and Smackdown), and most likely anything involving Jarrett will be skipped...

I have no problem with his year long title run, because he is the most well known wrestler, who can still wrestle and they needed someone to establish the title. I've got no problem with AJ losing the title so quickly and Jarrett getting back into the title hunt now. Why? AJ is your future star, he should be the babyface of the company, but why waste his big title run when you don't have television? Why not reward Raven with a well deserved title reign while they don't have television, then have Jarrett get the title back and let him keep it until they are on television. THEN give AJ his big run.

But one of the reasons TNA is so great, is because even when Jarrett does hold the title it doesn't necessarily make him the main event, they often on ppvs will put a tag title match or X division match over the Heayweight Title match. Once they even put AJ vs. Abyss as the main event even though it wasn't for any title. So it's not like Jarrett is automatically in the main event of every ppv.

As for the Rhino turn, well I guess it's not surprising, but it's now how I thought they would bring him in either. Jarrett has been doing this ex-WWE worker paranoid angle for a couple of weeks (which originally was probably because they thought Matt was coming) so it would've made sense to bring in Rhino against Jarrett. But I got no problem with it. Why not team Rhino and Jarrett together? I'd rather see Rhino as a heel. I'd rather see Rhino wrestle faces like Styles, Raven, Sabin than heels like Jarrett, Abyss, Outlaw. The ONLY question I have is does this mean Jarrett is no longer aligned with Monty? He doesn't really need Rhino and Monty for muscle. I'd like to see Monty turn face and go against Rhino.

And let's give some credit to Raven, everyone says he's done and yet he's had 4 straight really good ppv matches.

I have noticed that people who feel they have to say this usually aren't all THAT serious

If you want to defend Jeff Jarrett, that's fine, but if you can't do it without resorting to name calling you should probably find some other board to play on.

Jarrett would still make a great secondary heel, along the lines of Christian, Muhammad Hassan (okay, maybe not anymore), Chris Jericho, etc. But when the entire promotion is dependent on him (HHH), he's just strong enough a character to pull it off....

Jeff Jarrett is a decent wrestler who can good work matches with the likes of Raven & AJ Styles, both of whom, are totally different.

BUT, Jarrett is too much of a gloryhound. Isn't the reason that he wasn't in the last "King of the Mountain" match was the he wasn't booked to go over & he thought it was "his" match, therefore refusing to do the job? Talk about being a whiny-baby.

I've followed Jarrett throughout his career. He's from the town I live in now & I remember watching him wrestle in local high school gyms when he probably didn't weigh 200 lbs.

But he's had his time as the focal point of TNA. Personally the new SpikeTV era of TNA should be built around 2 people ... AJ Style & Christopher Daniels.

You found one here. I watched him grow up from a kid through the referree thing in memphis and wrestler along with Brian Christopher. They really should get brian in TNA with Jarrett as they had a great feud for a while. I never saw anything wrong with his wrestling, maybe some of the writers gave his silly characters but heck they can do tha to anyone.

Matter of act, if Brian Christopher would get off of the Grnd Master Sexy thing (It's really ooollldddd) and get in TNA he might go somewhere. He is a good wrestler when the writers will let him do it. In his younger days especially before WWF he was alot like Chris Benoit.

Jarret is decent on the mike and can make just about anybody hate him in the heel role.

OK, where to start....

Jarrett is at best, a mediore wrestler. He's only had one phenominal match (and that was against Shawn Michaels, who isn't exactly a horrible worker). Aside from that match (and MAYBE the Booker T match he had 5 yrs ago when Booker won his first title) can you remember ONE epic match he's been in? His offence is also very dated (I think the only thing 'high risk' I've seen him do is a dropkick). He's a Memphis Heel (stalling, chinlocks) in a era where most fans consider it boring. His selling isn't the greatest either. I remember his match with AJ Styles recently on PPV and he didn't take a LOT of his stuff. I remember him going down very early on a Pele kick. It also says a lot when you just can't have a straight out wrestling match with a guy most consider one of the best workers in the country.

The biggest problem I have with him is that he's acting like HHH (constanly being on top, never letting anyone take the spotlight, gloryhog) and doesn't have NEARLY the talent he has. Hey, I hate HHH, but you would NEVER see Hemsley lose his title by having a guest ref knock him out. For all of HHH's faults, he still does the right thing most of the time (see Batista) and actually is a GOOD wrestler.



By the way, Storm's gimmick includes 1.) telling the audience to shut up, and 2.) occasionally making everyone stand for the Canadian national anthem. You know they don't know what to do with a wrestler when he's making fans stand for a national anthem. It's like waving a white flag and saying, "This guy has no personality -- we give up."

Jarrett has his pros and cons, but one fact is indisputable....he is not a draw. The guy does not make a dollar. If Jeff Jarrett was a draw, WCW's buy rate numbers wouldn't have been competing with and in some cases losing to ECW in 2000. If Jeff Jarrett was a draw, the WWA would have been a success. If Jeff Jarrett was a draw, it wouldn't have taken TNA nearly three years to put on a three hour PPV.

Jarrett is a good role player, and I'll even admit to being somewhat of a fan before he became HHH Jr. He's not compelling enough to be the focal point of the show, and his matches are the same week in and week out. To say he's the most recognizable name is a self fulfilling prophecy if you keep him on top all the time. How will Monty Brown, say, ever get any serious name value if he's used to put Jarrett over one month and then turned heel, made Jarrett's flunky, and stuck in midcard tags the next? It's easy to be the most recognizable name if you make a concerted effort to keep it that way.

Yeah, he was a part of that 2nd Generation wrestler stable with David Flair & Erik Watts. That's about as exciting as going to see a concert of Oates, Messina & Garfunkel.

I was always a Jarrett except for his original WCW and TNA runs. I liked the over the top Double J character, I liked it when he came back as the lesser over the top Double J character with Tennessee Lee.

I really liked the "Don't Piss Me off Jarrett". This version actually had legs to Main Event with Austin, although Austin thought otherwise. I would have never let him win the feud with Austin, but it might have been fun.

I even liked it when Jarrett ran with the Silver and Black nWo with the Harris Twins, and even when he was in the uppercard of WCW in it's dying days.

I hate the Jeff Jarrett now though. His character is right in line with Christian, but below Eddie and that's not a bad spot to be in. If he could somehow bring himself to fall into that sort of role in TNA it would probably do his character and that promotion a lot of good. He'd have to swallow a lot of his pride to do such a thing, but it would really be good for his business.
