Jeff Jarrett Talks WWE Reviving WCW

Published

on

WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett is one of a number of superstars that were main talents for both WWE and WCW during the Monday Night Wars, and as a promoter himself, Jarrett understands the business side of the professional wrestling industry.

The WCW brand has a ton of history, but since Vince McMahon acquired the company in 2001, it has been dormant, existing only on the WWE Network.

With so many brands evolving under the WWE umbrella, including NXT, Jarrett shared his thoughts on a potential WCW revival.

“I don’t believe so,” Jarrett said, according to WWE. “I think you’ll see bits and pieces of what [we saw]. I think that the War Games, the things that, you know, Starrcade last year, but I think they’ll take bits and pieces of that nostalgia and monetize it. But as an overall brand, I think NXT speaks for itself how a smashing success that is that if they’re going to invest in a new brand, it’s gonna be new. And that makes a lot of sense.”

Jarrett, 51, also discussed an in-ring return.

“The beginning of this year, the very end of last year, I sort of recommitted myself from a bunch of different points of view, but physically, I’m in as good of physical shape that I’ve been in seven, eight, 10 years.”

Sting Talks Wrestling Again, Match with Undertaker

Published

on

WWE Hall of Famer Sting has closed the door on a potential career in the ring and many fans feel as though there was a big missed opportunity for Sting to have a match with The Undertaker during his short run in WWE.

Sting discussed that, and a number of topics during an appearance on Lillian Garcia’s ‘Chasing Glory’ podcast.

“Yeah, I’m really done. I mean my neck doesn’t bother me at all. For the first couple of months after the match, I had an ache that would go down to the left side of my neck and down into my left trap. It was like a dull ache that was just there all the time and it was hard to sleep. I don’t have any side effects, any trouble so all I know is the neurosurgeon said, “You are so lucky there wasn’t a catastrophe that happened.”

Sting also discussed why he didn’t jump to WWE when Vince McMahon purchased WCW in the early 2000s.

“With WCW at the time, I was able to kind of tailor make my schedule to something that I could tolerate and something that was easier for my family at the time. Financially they always gave me what I wanted, but I was really close to leaving on a few different occasions and I was ready. If WCW didn’t give me what I wanted, then I was willing to take that risk and go to WWE. One of the other reasons why I never did, I always talked about this as well, I at the time-and I still don’t know if it’s accurate or not, but I thought that Vince wanted me as a talent to undermine WCW more than he wanted me as a talent working for him.”
