On his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett discussed the WWF No Mercy 1999 situation of him holding Vince McMahon up for money.

Jeff was only going to put Chyna over that night if Vince paid him extra money plus let him go to World Championship Wrestling, where he would follow his good friend, WWF writer Vince Russo.

Jarrett ended up receiving $300,000 instead of $150,000 for working that PPV.

Here’s what Double J said about the incident:

“I went and got dressed and when I got dressed I came out and Chyna is going over this, whatever, and Vince walks up in his three-piece suit, and I’ll never forget the look, it’s kind of those moments that, look, this wasn’t in his highlight reel.

I’m not saying that, but in my personal highlight reel, it absolutely was because he came up, opened up his shirt pocket, got out a while envelope, and said, ‘Thank you, I appreciate it, now freaking,’ he didn’t use that word but he used another word, ‘Go tear the house down.’ I said, ‘Yes, sir, boss, looking forward to it.’ He handed me the check.”

Jarrett then addressed rumors of having heat with Vince for 19 years (until he was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2018) due to this incident, but he played down the heat rumors.

Here’s what he said:

“I told everybody that I saw that I rode up and down the roads with for two years…goodbye [after the PPV], which was cool.

I got the opportunity to do that. Then I walked straight up to Gorilla and just sort of stood there because, you know, Gorilla is lots of moving parts, all kinds of stuff going on.

Then I just waited for my moment and I stuck around the table, pat Vince on the shoulder. He looked over, took off his headset, got up, and we had a huge hug and embrace. I carried that emotion.”
