Jeff Jarrett Speaks On India, What To Expect From Impact Wrestling

Impact Wrestling co-founder Jeff Jarrett recently sat down with Mid-Day during Impact’s tour of India. The former TNA Champion talked Indian wrestling making it's way to the forefront & what can be expected from Impact Wrestling going forward.

How Has The Trip To India Been:

“It has been great. It’s a unique time for us now as we are creating history. My family has been in the wrestling business for over 70 years and something like this has never happened before. We are actually producing content with a global company, but for the first time on Indian soil. Wrestling has been around in India for a long time; WWE has been here and Impact is also being viewed for 15 years. It is the first time we will be shooting for Impact in Film City, Mumbai. It’s historic!”

Message For The Impact Wrestling Fans In India:

“First off, thank you! I appreciate the opportunity. We know you guys have wanted this for a long time. I cannot wait for you to see what’s next and I also cannot wait to come back. This is just the beginning of the relationship as far as producing live events. This is a launching pad for Impact Wrestling in India.”


Indian Wrestlers Making Their Way To The Global Stage:

“Well, this is kind of an offbeat story, but, it goes back maybe 25 years ago when I was sitting down with my stock broker and he talked about merging markets that would be potential money makers. India was on the rise and it’s no different from professional wrestling, for example, Impact Wrestling being in the market for 15 years. We have also signed a deal with Sony Six. Since the last 20 years, the United States would be the no. 1 market followed by the United Kingdom but I see India far surpassing UK in popularity, growth and opportunity. Looking at the current events taking place with WWE, Impact Wrestling, you can see we have great opportunities. Several years ago we came to India and did ‘Ring Ka King’ and I knew then that India is a market that is certainly going to become second to none.”

What Impact Wrestling Fans Can Expect In The Future:

“During the month of June, our 4 episodes lead up to Slammiversary. We have very compelling, India-specific content that will be created. Just the fact that we are producing content in Mumbai is unique and exciting and the fans will see that.”
