Jeff Jarrett Says Monty Brown Could Have Been the Next Big Thing in TNA, WWE

May 8, 2021 - by James Walsh

Jeff Jarrett was recently interviewed by Fightful, and he discussed a variety of topics, including what it was like working with Monty Brown in TNA and Brown’s potential as a top star in pro wrestling.

When discussing his relationship with Brown and their work together in TNA, Jarrett mentioned how special Brown was a talent given his skill set both on the mic and in the ring:

“You know, Monty is one of my—in a lot of ways—what-if stories. Because he really was on a roll. I personally really like Monty. But, from a professional point of view, the guy could just flat out talk. He had charisma and that finishing move, the Pounce, that was so easy to like, so to speak. It was so very natural. You didn’t have to think like, ‘How did that guy do that? How does that guy fall?’ It was real simple. He’s a football player. He knew how to take your head off and he did it in the ring.”

Jarrett went on to bring up Brown’s potential and him eventually joining WWE:

“But, Monty’s charisma, he’s something that had he had another year or two, I don’t want to put a timeframe on it, but a little bit more seasoning, I truly believe when he arrived at the WWE the playing field would have been different. I think I could say that about AJ Styles, completely respectful. Monty was a unique talent. The sky was the limit for the guy, without question. His former coaches talk glowingly about the kind of human being he was. Monty’s been a long-time personal favorite of mine and had a lot of fun. We had a couple of good television matches that did a number. So, I like Monty.”

Brown, wrestling as Marcus Cor Von, had his last match against CM Punk back in June of 2007 as part of WWE’s ECW brand.

    There were always rumors about why he left so suddenly, but I don’t really know what’s true. Something maybe about his sister passing away and Money wanting to dedicate all his time to her kids, maybe? I did like him a lot, though. But it’s very clear Vince woulda jobbed him out of wrestling entirely anyways, imo

    TNA should’ve gotten behind him. The fans seemed to like him (idk if he was moving merch or anything, I just mean they took to him and seemed excited). I remember reading he had been promised a run with the nwa title and got pissed when that was pulled for no reason and whatnot.

    Road Dogg says the dude had all the talent in the world but tried too hard to be the Rock.
