Just when you think you’re out, they pull you back in. According to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Jeff Jarrett has filed a new lawsuit against Impact Wrestling and Anthem Entertainment. This took place in a U.S. District Court in Tennessee on February 21, 2019.
Jarrett, and his now defunct Global Force Wrestling promotion, are seeking $4.8 million due to the fact that Impact Wrestling has not returned the master tapes of the GFW television shows that were taped in Las Vegas in the 2016.
The reason that they were returned is that they apparently no longer exist.
Here’s a clip of Jarrett speaking about GFW from Impact a few years ago:
Impact claims that:
“The 16 one-hour episodes of Global Force Wrestling Amped content sought in this question no longer exist. It was deleted in the normal course of business, long before the onset of this litigation, in order to free up storage space on Anthem Wrestling’s systems.”
This is not the first lawsuit that Double J has filed against Impact; he sued in August 2018 for copyright infringement.
Jarrett is now working for WWE as a backstage producer and occasional on-air talent.
How the heck does someone erase 16 hours of footage?!?! What is wrong with Impact??
