Jeff Jarrett Speaks On Who Owns The “Broken” Gimmick


Co-founder of Impact Wrestling, Jeff Jarrett, recently spoke to Wrestle:List & revealed who owns the “Broken” gimmick that current WWE superstar Matt Hardy, has made extremely popular.

Here’s what Jarrett had to say on who owns the gimmick:

Jarrett: “I always take the high road because there is legal squabbles or potential legal squabbles but I have said this to a couple of outlets and I say this with very broad strokes. I am from Nashville, so I am around music which is intellectual property and I have been in the business 30 years. Intellectual property laws are very simple, there are two sides to it; there are publishers and the writers, then there are the performers as well.”

“Jeff Hardy has been one of my best friends for 20 years; you can look on my social media and their social media and we take family vacations together but business is business. So, when it relates to IP it’s real simple, there is a publisher who owns the property, there is a writer who gets credit and can monetize it, then there is the performers. There is no question that Broken Matt and Brother Nero’s performances were off the charts good but, when it comes to ownership to me, it’s almost a silly squabble, it’s never been in question, Impact are the owners.”
