Jeff Jarrett Discusses His 'Surreal' Moment With Vince McMahon

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 04/12/18


Jeff Jarrett recently spoke with TMZ (transcript via wrestlinginc.com), here are the highlights…

On Preparing For His WWE Hall of Fame Speech: “Earlier in the day, we went through just sort of walk-throughs, camera positioning, the order, just simple stuff,” Jarrett said. “They called me back later in the day and said, ‘Hey, we want you to go through just the top of your speech’ and that’s where I had the idea – me and Brian [James] had fun with it – of coming out and spelling my name. I came through the curtain and I laid it out there ‘J-E-double F,’ and did all that and they said, ‘Okay, cut that,’ and I turn around and Vince [McMahon] is two feet in front of my face.”

On Talking With Vince McMahon: “I’ll never forget that, not ever, because it was so out of left field, so spontaneous,” Jarrett continued. “WrestleMania is his baby this is number 34, down to the ‘T’ on everything is thought through. He’s got a lot more priorities on his list and for me to connect with him on the stage where I got to do the speech. It was surreal. It was quick, but a real special conversation. A real personal conversation we had.”

On His Overall Experience: “Just to be able to be there, everyone at WWE making the decision for me to be there in the Hall of Fame and those few moments [with Vince]. Positive doesn’t do it justice, it was super positive.”
