• Jeff Jarrett Says WWF Legend Never Being World Champion Is A “Head Scratcher”
On an episode of his weekly ‘My World’ podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett talking about signing fellow WWF/WCW Legend Scott Hall for TNA’s debut PPV in 2002.
Here’s what Double J had to say about ‘Razor Ramon’:
“I don’t recall exactly but my gut tells me I would’ve reached out to him. The Jeff Jarrett/Razor Ramon relationship was pretty deep and travelled a lot of miles with him and all that.
When he became available, I definitely remember I was super excited. I think to this day for him not to have been a World Champion, to me is sort of a head scratcher.
He had it all. I was very excited and my dad and him always had a great relationship, I was very excited to get the opportunity to have him on board.
Me and Scott were, ‘Scott, we’re not talking about locking you up, you know creatively what I think about you, we’re going to take care of you.’ He wanted to know what I was doing, and I was like, ‘Dude, trust me.’ We knew each other, I was going to take care of him creatively and here’s the dates and here’s the money.”
