"I remember being in a car driving back from an event when AJ (Styles) made his WWE debut at the Royal Rumble in Orlando with chants in the arena at deafening levels. It’s well documented in our careers how we worked together professionally and personally. His days at TNA and then working with him at New Japan," said Jarrett. "Now here we are heading into Wrestlemania in 2018, I’m getting inducted to the Hall of Fame and he’s the WWE Champion. Bobby Roode has worn WWE gold. Samoa Joe, injured now but the prominence that he’s had. I’m very very happy for those guys and excited for Wrestlemania weekend," he continued. 

For a small time, Impact Wrestling was called Global Force Wrestling after the company was bought by Anthem Sports and Entertainment. Eventually GFW was eliminated from the company as was GFW founder Jarrett. Despite the rocky end to Jarrett's relationship with Anthem he did not have any negative things to say about the owners.

"I wish them nothing but the best and will leave it at that. The company has had lots of up’s and down’s. That goes without saying. The wrestling industry needs as many thriving promotions as possible and I wish all those guys nothing but the best," said Jarrett.

In April, Jarrett will enter the WWE Hall of Fame which is another subject he spoke about with Main Event Radio. He also discussed how excited he is to speak with Vince McMahon.
