Jeff Jarrett Reacts To His WWE Hall Of Fame Induction

Jeff Jarrett Reacts To His WWE Hall Of Fame Induction

As first reported by NBC Sports earlier today, six-time WWE Intercontinental Champion Jeff Jarrett will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018. "I've always said I never believe in coincidences, only convergences".

"I still have a hard time wrapping my brain around it but when I think about AJ Styles, and when he hit the scene a couple years ago in Orlando at the Royal Rumble and he hasn't slowed down since, now he's headed into WrestleMania as champion".

While his catchphrase "Ain't I great?" was often responded to with boos from fans, per WWE.com, Jarrett, known as "Double J", was humbled by the honor, responding on Twitter. I would have loved to work with the guys in WWE during that time period, but it wasn't meant to be.

In a speech in Vienna, he vowed to ensure trade with the European Union remained as "frictionless as possible" after the split.

Jeff Jarrett's family has been in the wrestling business for a long time, and he also noted that this induction isn't just about him. "My grandfather, my grandmother on the other side of my family", Jarrett said. "My family goes back three generations, so I'm the lucky one that got picked for my family being in the Hall of Fame". That is something that is so humbling to me. Jarrett stated, "that night in Panama city, who would've thunk (laughs), who would've thought these many years later, 17 years later or whatever it may be, that I'm standing here Monday, February the 19th and the announcement is made".

While many promoters' sons had entered the ring and flamed out, Jarrett was a prodigy inside the squared circle and learned his craft against WWE Hall of Famers Jerry "The King" Lawler, Nick Bockwinkel among countless others. Who am I? Why am I going in now?

"Out of all the guys who've laced up their boots, there's less that 200 of us in the Hall of Fame", said Jarrett. 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.
