Notes on Jeff Jarrett and Sean Waltman

Jan 22, 2019 - by Steve Gerweck

As we previously reported, CMLL star Rush signed an exclusive deal with Ring of Honor, which meant that MLW had to pull him from their Wrestlemania weekend show and change their main event. It was set to be Rush vs. LA PARK, but he was replaced with Pentagon Jr. MLW CEO Court Bauer blamed it on politics, but in the latest episode of X-Pac 1-2-360, Sean Waltman said that he didn’t see how the situation was due to politics. Here are highlights:

On the Rush/MLW situation: “I don’t see how that’s politics though, how is that politics. That’s not politics, that’s just business. It might be bad business but it’s not like political maneuverings or something. I don’t see that…It was only a matter of time until this type of stuff was going to happen, all the great cooperation from All In and what a beautiful thing that was, I am not sure that’s going to be able to happen like that again moving forward.”

On Lucha Underground not letting Ivelisse out of her contract: “The thing that I don’t get though is alright, if they say ‘Oh don’t worry we’ll let you out if you want out’ then put that in writing. If you’re going to do that you shouldn’t have a problem putting it in writing. And it should have been put in writing. It’s lame. It’s not like she’s the No. 1 ratings draw on Lucha Underground, let the girl go make a living.”
