Jeff Jarrett Reveals His Top Five Wrestlers Of All Time


GFW founder Jeff Jarrett appeared on the CBS Radio podcast Brown and Scoop.

During the interview, Jarrett discussed Global Force Wrestling, TNA, Roddy Piper, Owen Hart, Taz, The Masked Saint and his top 5 wrestlers of all time.

Jeff On A Owen Hart Memory:

“There’s so many funny stories… we can talk from now until next week about funny stories. People that don’t know Owen Hart or just know his passing… what a great guy above anything. A family man, father, husband, but he had more integrity in his pinky than most people had in their entire body. I want people to know that first and foremost. We both were second generation wrestlers. We bonded day one because we can relate on so many levels.”

His top 5 wrestlers of all time:

“Fabulous Jackie Fargo is one of the guys I was raised on. He was strutting long before Flair was and certainly myself. He was somebody who sold out The Garden many times. I’m going way back.
“Jerry The King Lawler is a guy that in his hey day… his believability, his authenticity, his realism… he taught me so much.

“Shawn Michaels is a guy that I got to have many matches with, but when you look on his body of work over the years, you have to put him if not at the very top, certainly up there at the top.
“You got to go with a guy who I had the fortunate… or unfortunate, because he beat the hell out of me, Kurt Angle. Olympic gold medalist and Kurt came on to the scene and really…a lot of amateur wrestlers in our business don’t quite get how to make that transition and I believe yes, Kurt won the worlds and he won the gold and he did almost everything you could possibly do as an amateur wrestler…the professional wrestler he became just off the charts good.”

“I knew this guy when he broke in down in Texas. He worked in Tennessee and then he went to WCW. When you take a step back and really look at the big man in this business. You almost have to say Undertaker. Andre the Giant, great big man, Great Giant Stud, but when you look at Taker’s…the dude was main eventing Wrestlemanias in the 80s. Mark I don’t think is a big man. He has no peers. (‘He’s like the LL Cool J of wrestling.’ – Scoop) ‘Great analogy. That caught me off guard. I like it. That was good.'”
