  • Quotes

    • (Cross the Line Commercial)
      Jeff Jarrett: Success is a relative term. I been a World Champion everywhere I been. But, I cross the line, and left it all behind. To follow my heart. I had a dream and founded TNA. The dream became a reality. The reality a phenomenon. But the journey have been tough. Challenging, at times nearly debilitating. During the darkest times, I've persevered and learned one important lesson: Adversity introduces a man to himself.

    • (Jeff Jarrett comes out and after Kurt Angle talked about what he was going to do with Jeff's three daughters) Jeff Jarrett: (to Kurt Angle) You are a worthless son of a b*tch and you know it! I heard that sh*t for the last time!

    • Jeff Jarrett: I was always taught that a woman's place was in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant. And I'm a firm believer in that.

    • Jeff Jarrett: I'm gonna play a tune on your soul.

    • (WWE RAW Owen Hart tribute show 1999)
      Jeff Jarrett: In this business, I guess you got a lot of acquaintances but very few friends. And Owen, he was one of those friends. He did a lot of funny stories, his personality, the things he used to do....and I told my wife a bunch of times about the last couple months I've been with Owen on the road....I see Owen more than I see her and my little girl. And he said the same thing. And now that he's not here, it's....you look at it almost selfishly. Owen, my buddy, my friend, not with me anymore. I know Owen's in a better place, life isn't cutting up. But when you really think about Owen's life, I think about integrity. Because in this business...it's cold, it's callous, it's selfish, it's self-serving, it's unrealistic, it's a fantasy world. But Owen was real. He was a man's man. His wife and kids.....are 3 of the luckiest people in the world, because he loved them more than anything in the world. And that's why he did what he did -- to provide for them. And he did it with integrity, and integrity in this business is few and far between. That's not a good thing to know, but it's the truth. And outside all of the laughs....because on the road, without the laughs, you know.....the fans get to see Owen 10-15 minutes a week, but when you see him 24 hours a day for 10 or 12 days at a time, he's one of the guys that made it fun. Made coming to work entertaining off the camera, and that's just as important as on the camera. Owen........I'll make the promise to you. 'Cause you've got 2 little kids and I've got a little one of my own, as they grow older, the only thing that they might have to find out what their dad was like is wrestling films. But I'll make the promise to myself...as the years go by, I'll do my best to let Oje and Athena really know what a great man you were, Owen. That's it...I can't....I don't know....

  • Okay wrestler.

    Maybe I rated Jeff Jarrett a bit low, but that is because I have always wondered what is his deal. I have tried to figure out whether he was a good guy or a bad person. I guess I'll say he is a middle of the road type of individual. But I must say back in the day, he was a great wrestler. I think he still is, but he was way better back in the mid 90's. Overall, I will say that he is a person who is hard to figure out because he changes at times. Oh well. Thank you.moreless

    Jeff Jarrett is indeed the man of my own time. I grew up remembering his name and notice his career in the process. As a third generation wrestler and also the founder, owner, and Vice President of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, he is the only one who makes me feel so great and not to mention, he is so sexy....



    He is the only one who gave the fans what real wrestling is all about. Unlike others who want to give you the same crap, over and over again. I have a real faith in Jeff Jarrett and someday, I hope to meet the man, who proven the fans, what real wrestling is all about.moreless
