Having learned that Jeff Jarrett is the latest name announced to be part of this year’s WWE Hall of Fame class, I had to make sure that Hell did not in fact freeze over.
Jeff Jarrett has a storied legacy in the world of sports entertainment, having competed in USWA, WWF, and WCW, as well as co-founding Impact Wrestling (at its inception it was known as NWA:TNA and has been previously known as Total Nonstop Action Wrestling and Global Force Wrestling). His tenure with the World Wrestling Federation, from 1992-1996, included six Intercontinental Championship reigns, winning the European Championship and sharing a tag championship with the late Owen Hart. Jarrett left WWE (then WWF) in less than amicable fashion that the thought of him ever associating himself with the leader in sports entertainment again seemed suspect. And yet when Triple H sends out a tweet about Jarrett being the latest name to be enshrined in WWE’s Hall of Fame you have to wonder what kind of discussion Jarrett and the “Cerebral Assassin” had that made the man who popularized the phrase “slapnuts” want to associate himself with the a company again.
