Jeff Jarrett recently spoke to NBC Sports, where he discussed a number of topics. Among them was his upcoming induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, being fired by Vince McMahon in 2001, AJ Styles and more.

Below are some highlights from the interview:

On being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame:

“I would have never dreamed that in 2018 I’d be going into the Hall of Fame,” Jarrett said to NBC Sports last week, “but as I’ve sat back and looked I said, ‘Welp, I guess there are some things that are just meant to be.’”

“When I first heard about it I looked at my calendar and saw that the date of the ceremony is April 6, 2018 and April 6 of 1986 was the day that I had my very first match. So 32 years to the day is sort of surreal.”

On being fired by Vince McMahon when WWE purchased WCW in 2001:

“Vince does a lot of things well,” Jarrett said. “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,” Jarrett said.

On being inducted on the same weekend that AJ Styles headlines WrestleMania:

“I don’t believe in coincidences, only convergences and AJ headlining and me going in to the Hall of Fame is perfect,” Jarrett said. “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.”

They also discuss forming TNA, future plans and more.
