WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett was recently interviewed on the Pancakes and Powerslams Show to discuss several professional wrestling topics. Here are the highlights:
Who he thinks should be in the main event on RAW: “I think Elias is a true main-event rivalry away from breaking to a completely different level,” said Jarrett.
“Not to say that [Elias isn’t already] a main-eventer, but when they have that real rivalry, because if you look back and look at Stone Cold and Rock, Stone Cold and Vince McMahon, Hogan and Savage, Hogan and Warrior, you can just go all the way down that line.
“You gotta look at where Lex Luger was at [in WWE] and when he jumped to WCW. Overnight, he became Sting’s ally, and Sting was on the fence in the nWo storyline. And so, all of a sudden, Lex was that personified WCW face that name his name there, and he really helped nWo a lot more than people give him credit for.
“Because, again, it was another rivalry made. Lex Luger against nWo, Sting against nWo. And I think Seth and Elias are right in that.”
If he’d like to be SmackDown Live General Manager should Paige be cleared for an in-ring return: “You would have to be a moron not to say [yes],” Jarrett said. “Absolutely! Do I think it’s gonna happen? No. But, would it sure be intriguing? Multiple ways to go and, as a famous promoter has once said, ‘never say never.'”
