The news of Jeff Jarrett resigning from TNA Wrestling caught a number of people off guard, us included. Had this happened six months ago no one would have thought anything about it but following the departure of Hulk Hogan in the fall and Eric Bischoff being sent home, Jarrett’s role in the company had seen a resurgence.
We reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com on November 1, 2013 that Jarrett was once again “very active backstage” in the company and was working with the creative team comprised of John Gaburick, Dave Lagana and Matt Conway.
The latest we heard about Jarrett was he was in the process of facilitating a deal between TNA Wrestling and a group financed by country music star Toby Keith. We’re told if Jarrett is indeed gone, which is believed to be the case, that deal most certainly is off.
We’ve reached out to Jeff Jarrett’s camp and representatives from TNA Wrestling’s public relationship department in an attempt to get a comment but haven’t heard back as of press time.
