TNA Wrestling founder and current star Jeff Jarrett was recently interviewed by THOnline. In the interview he discussed TNA’s progress as well as how they try and compete with the corporate juggernaut that is the WWE.
“When WWE bought WCW in 2001, it left a huge void in the market place. Without a No. 2, there can’t be a No. 1.”
“When they(fans) come out they’re going to get their money’s worth and then some, they will walk away seeing the best wrestling show they’ve ever seen. This is by far the most fan interactive wrestling show there’s ever been. We go the extra mile for the fans. We give everybody an opportunity to get in the ring and get their picture taken with TNA stars after the matches.”
“Quite frankly, our roster is better than their roster, they’re a publicly traded company that has 50 years of history. From a business standpoint, they’ve got such a head start. But we’re finding a niche in our own way.”
