JR SHOOTS DOWN RUMORS OF NEW PROMOTION WITH JARRETT



WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross shot down the rumors that he is in talks with
Jeff Jarrett and Toby Keith to start a new wrestling promotion in his
latest blog on JRsBarBQ.com. I have not spoken to Jeff Jarrett since he
left WWE on a day that doesn’t rank too high on my list of fun days at
work, Ross wrote. Jarrett left the company in October 1999 and was
scheduled to fight Chyna at a pay-per-view one day after his WWE deal
expired. While Jarrett wrestled without a contract, losing the
Intercontinental title to Chyna at No Mercy, rumors are that he ‘extorted’
WWE for a total of $300,000 to do the job. Regarding talking wrestling
with Toby Keith, JR acknowledged that he did have dinner with him and
talked wrestling but discussions didn¹t involve starting a new promotion.
