Jeff Jarrett was recently interviewed by Burton Mail about the company’s return to UK television. Here are some of the highlights.
His thoughts on the return to Spike TV:
“We are so proud to be partnering with Spike TV and bringing Impact Wrestling to our fans in the UK for free every single week. We are closing in on the 15th anniversary of when this company was launched and we are delighted that our loyal and dedicated fans will be able to share this celebration with us now. But, in those 15 years, the word has changed so much and so has the industry of professional wrestling. The advent of computers and social media has meant that fans have gone from wanting something every week to wanting something ever few hours – this means that we will supplement our show on Spike with even more social and web content to ensure we are engaging with our fans in the best way that we can.”
What fans can expect to see on Impact:
“Viewers will be able to see a mix of heavyweight, tag team, womens and X Division wrestling when they tune into Impact on Spike. There is really something for everyone. I am aiming to use mine and my family’s 70 years of experience in the industry to try and put on a great show week in and week out. But the most important thing is our fans and making sure they are having fun and enjoying what they are seeing. We will do this by giving top talent an opportunity like we have done in the past with the likes of A.J. Styles – now a global superstar – and Bobby Roode.”
