In the business of professional wrestling, it is often easy to discount something that happens as fake or an angle. However, PWS reported on Dec. 31 that Jeff Jarrett announcing that he is leaving TNA Impact Wrestling is not an angle and is really happening in less than a week.
When Hulk Hogan quit the company, they ran an angle on television where he quit on the air, which made many people question the legitimacy of the event. However, Hogan really quit TNA Impact Wrestling and they ran the angle to explain his departure to the fans.
Eric Bischoff, Hogan's best friend and business partner, had been off television for months, but was still running the shows behind the scenes. However, after Hogan left, TNA soon sent Bischoff home and told him he was finished with the company as well.
After Bischoff left, Jeff Jarrett returned to take a more hand's on role with the company he created. The problem lately is that Dixie Carter, whose parent's own TNA Impact Wrestling through Panda Energy, has started taking a more controlling role in the product and she began to clash with Jarrett behind the scenes and were not working well together.
This is disappointing for fans of TNA Impact Wrestling, as Jarrett has a solid wrestling mind and Dixie Carter is still a newcomer to the business. Obviously, Carter feels she knows better how to build a wrestling product than a veteran promoter and it will be a matter of time before fans see whether she can turn things around or not.
