WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett was recently interviewed by Mirror to promote his upcoming “Ain’t He Great” tour. He discussed a number of topics, including the tour, intergender matches, returning to the ring and more.

Below are some questions, along with Jarrett’s answers:

What was the decision behind going on tour rather than telling the story of your career in a book or podcast, as we have seen many others do in the last few years?

I’ve been approached for views about doing a book, but I never wrapped my head around it, in terms of where does it end? I suppose after being inducted into the Hall of Fame that gave me a second thought. But I have also been approached about doing podcasts and those type of things. The thing with this tour is that I have always loved live performances and this is going to be in front of real wrestling fans, who are going to be keen to engage.

Without giving away too much, what can we expect to hear from you during the tour?

Well, when you look back on my career my in-ring work has been watched across the world. A big part of this is going to be what happened behind the scenes when the cameras were off. I am fortunate/unfortunate enough to be part of some very controversial events, such as the rivalry with Chyna, Hulk Hogan at Bash at the Beach and all the ups and downs throughout my career.

It’s interesting that you mention Chyna. The pair of you were doing inter gender matches in WWE in the 1990s. In recent years they have become very popular on the independent scene. Do you feel that there is a place for inter gender matches at the highest level of the business?

As a wrestling promoter, I believe that it has to be a unique, special situation. Inter gender matches should be treated on a case by case basis. If they become the norm then I don’t think it is interesting. But for sure, if done right with the right talent, they have the appeal of stealing the show.

Jeff Jarrett reunites with AJ Styles and other Superstars: WrestleMania Diary

You have had a long and very successful career in the business, but you don’t seem to be slowing down. Realistically, how long do you think you have left in the ring?

Look, I evaluate myself every year, you gotta take a hard long look at yourself and be honest. I have hit the gym harder than I have in the past six to seven years and I feel really great. But come December, I will evaluate myself again and see how I am. As I stand here today with air in my lungs, it is impossible to say.

They also discuss getting the Hall of Fame announcement, making appearances at various independent promotions and more.
