Jeff Jarrett Comments On If Another Major Wrestling Promotion Could Thrive Today


During a recent appearance on The Business of the Business podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett commented on if there is room for another major wrestling promotion, GCW being branded as a deathmatch promotion, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On GCW being branded as a deathmatch promotion: “I was well aware of GCW through the lens of FITE, long before I’ll say diplomatically, 2021. They have been on my radar for quite some time. A lot of folks know them as, ‘oh, the deathmatch,’ and in a lot of ways I think, maybe positively and negatively, they’ve been branded that way.”

On GCW building a loyal following: “But Brett and the team have put out consistent episodic content. All of their programming, they have a very loyal audience, and it continues to grow and grow.”

On there being room for another major wrestling promotion that could be a home-based promotion in another region: “Now language is an issue, a barrier. That goes without saying. But there is room for a — I’ll call it a home-based promotion around the world. It could be South America, Mexico City. Look at the amount of Hispanics in the United States. They absolutely could thrive. So I think there could be a Hispanic promotion, there could be a European promotion. The days of it being just looked at from a US lens, in my opinion, they’re long gone. It is a global promotion. It’s just where is the home base going to be. Because I think there’s room for, and I don’t want to get too far down the road, but three, four, five, six, seven of those.”
