Jeff Jarrett - Yay Or Nay For The Hall of Fame

Hello and Welcome To The Basement… and this weeks  installment of Yay or Nay for the Hall of Fame…

This week’s subject is someone whose done it all… he was a referee, wrestler and a promoter… in fact he’s still the later two, but it’s clear that he’ll have fewer days in the ring in the coming years… he’s worked in nearly every major promotion in the United States, including some territories before they closed up… and captured quite a bit of gold….

I’m talking about the man from Hendersonville, Tenneessee…. J-E-Double F, J-A-Double-R, E-Double-T… Double J… Jeff Jarrett… Ain’t He Great?
