Jeff Jarrett Sues Impact Wrestling
Jeff Jarrett made headlines recently after he returned to the ring at the Royal Rumble and subsequent episodes of Monday Night Raw. His feud with Elias had all the makings of a fun rivalry that I suggested needed an old school guitar on a pole match. We haven’t heard much from Jarrett since his last loss to Elias on Raw
Today we heard from Double J in a totally different way. According to PWInsider, Jarrett and his company, Global Force Entertainment, filed a $5 million lawsuit against Impact Wrestling and their parent company, Anthem. Anthem has admittedly deleted all of the master video library for Global Force Wrestling’s short lived television show Amped. Jarrett believes that each of the 16 one hour episodes is valued at $300,000.
In what may be the most comical part of this suit is Anthem claims that they needed space on the Anthem Wrestling server. Thousands of hours of TNA and Impact Wrestling footage has to be held on those servers and the 16 hours of GFW was the tipping point. We will have to see how this situation plays out. It’s hard to believe that 16 hours of Global Force Wrestling could be worth $5 million when all of the WCW trademarks and the entire library were rumored to be purchased for less than $3 million. We will keep our eyes on the situation and give you more as it unfolds.
