Mathews and Dinero spoke at ringside about the Angle vs. Hardy match. They shifted their focus to Bram calling out former members of the TNA roster. Pope started saying “what?” repeatedly while looking off-camera.
Jeff Jarrett and Karen Jarrett walked into the studio. Jarrett wore a Global Force Wrestling t-shirt. The Jarretts shook hands with the broadcast team. The fans chanted “welcome back.” Jarrett thanked them and asked if hell has frozen over.
Jarrett asked what the co-founders of GFW were doing in a TNA ring. He said he would address some points and not others. He said he got a text from TNA management last week saying they had a proposal. Jarrett said he didn’t initially reply, but then he got to wondering what they want.
Jarrett took the conference call. He said they told him they want him to come back and take the match. He said he nearly hung up the phone when they said that. “I don’t even wrestle in my own promotion, so why would I wrestle here,” he said. Then he said they told him it was the King of the Mountain match, which he created.
Jarrett said they told him it wasn’t just any episode of Impact, it’s the 13th Anniversary of the company that he and his father co-founded. Jarrett said he started thinking of all the great moments he had in the Impact Zone. He recalled Jim Cornette announcing that Kurt Angle was jumping to TNA. He recalled Samoa Joe and Angle going at it, and he brought up A.J. Styles.
Jarrett brought up Beer Money and said they became probably the best team the company ever produced. He said Eric Young has more TV shows than Ryan Seacrest. Jarrett said he had to really think about how the proposal affect the GFW roster and the staff that had dug deep over the last 14 months.
Jarrett teared up as he asked how Karen was going to react to it. Karen took the mic and said she loves Jeff. She said that when he hung up the phone with TNA, she thought what now. She said they had moved on and GFW is there future. Karen said her emotions took over and she told him not to call them back because they had moved on. She said Jeff laid it out for her and she started to understand.
[Q6] Karen said TNA is Jeff’s baby and he started it with his father. She said she still doesn’t completely understand why they are there, but she loves her husband and supports him in whatever he does in life.
Karen said that she cried her eyes out earlier in the day while they were talking with Sonjay Dutt because they had left it in the rearview mirror. Sonjay told her that Jeff didn’t get to go out the way he wanted to go out. Karen said Jeff didn’t get to leave the way he wanted and he was fired on a backstage pre-tape. Karen said Jeff is going to leave TNA on his terms and he’s going to make things right the way that he knows how to do it.
Jeff took the mic back and said fans can bank on this. The King of the Mountain is declaring himself in the match one last time. He said he will be walking the TNA aisle one last time and reign King of the Mountain. Jarrett mentioned Toby Keith and said he looked him in the eyes two days ago and told him that Jeff may not be as good as he was once was, but once he’s as good as he ever was. Jarrett’s music played and he and Karen left the ring…
