Following the announcement, NBC Sports released the first interview with Jarrett commenting about the news. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On technically being fired on live WWE television when the company purchased WCW in 2001: “Vince does a lot of things well. And he knows how to produce great TV. To me that night was just good TV. It’s a business and I knew that I was going to be getting paid on my Turner contract for about another eight or nine months, so I didn’t even think to address it that night.”
On being inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame during the same week that A.J. Styles will defend the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 34: “I don’t believe in coincidences, only convergences and AJ headlining and me going into the Hall of Fame is perfect. He’s been a friend since the early days of our relationship and it’s been great to watch him progress as a performer. I can’t say enough about the guy.”
On whether or not this feels like the right time for him to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame: “Quite frankly I’ve thought about that. Who am I? Why am I going in now? They asked and I had to do a head-scratcher because it was literally a shock. There are less than 200 wrestlers in the Hall of Fame and you think about the thousands of guys that have laced up the boots and I’m going to be one of those 200. It just doesn’t seem right in my brain.”
