– The Hurricane On Leaving Impact Wrestling Because Of Jeff Jarrett
During a recent appearance on Pancakes and Powerslams Show, WWE & WCW Veteran The Hurricane talked about leaving Impact Wrestling because of Jeff Jarrett. Below is what he said:
“Well, he [Jeff Jarrett] brought himself in. His wife, his buddy, which created a budget issue that he created. Because of that several guys were let go.
My contract was up anyway, so was Al Snow’s, and Simon Diamond. Apparently to him longevity didn’t matter to him. He comes from a family that are kind of a carney family anyway so he is from that lineage.
That is what it was; it didn’t matter that the people brought in weren’t as talented or successful as me and Simon Diamond worked, that didn’t matter, he was just going to bring in his buddies.
The second I got released, my phone blew up. Everyone from that roster called me because I went above and beyond there from my duties as an Agent to help people out. Not just with their matches, but with their characters, their promos, I was a promo guy.
I would have guys reading me their promos, and watching their entrances. I went above and beyond trying to see everyone their succeed. I caught heat because of the thing with the Hardy’s because they were my friends.
To them it was bush league mentality and not professional, but that was just one person I had to deal with that issue. Impact Wrestling I had a great relationship with them, no heat there whatsoever. I wish them all the best.
I’m looking forward to Eli Drake. I told them back in the day that he is going to be ‘the guy’ to carry this company in terms of being a champion. I am a big fan of a lot of the talent there. I have nothing but respect and love for the roster.”
– WWF Legend Says Jinder Mahal Did A Pretty Good Job During His WWE Title Run, Says He Was Interested In Seeing Brock Lesnar vs. Jinder Mahal At Survivor Series 2017
Old School WWF Legend “Stone Cold” Steve Austin recently gave his views on “The Modern Day Maharaja” Jinder Mahal’s WWE Title run and the original Survivor Series 2017 main event of Brock Lesnar vs. Jinder Mahal.
Below is what Austin said (it should be noted that Austin said these things before this week’s SmackDown Live, where Jinder lost the WWE Title to AJ Styles):
“Jinder, the guy’s done pretty damn good with his run. I mean he’s done pretty damn good. But if are you gonna match these two guys up just the way Brock went through Braun Strowman with a clean finish, pay-per-view or two ago which I don’t recall the name of, but with an F5, one F5 in the middle without anything devastating to set that up.
With Jinder being a half or third the size of Braun Strowman, I don’t see him having……well let me put this way – that’s gonna be an interesting match to watch those guys work to see what style or psychology they’re gonna employ. Whether that’s an octagon or four-sided ring, that’s gonna be the match I want to see how they pull this off.
I just think the kids done a good job. Don’t yank that belt off him yet. Sometimes you can give that belt out to people and it doesn’t really help them out, but I think it has helped this guy out a lot and he’s done a good job with it.”
