Jeff Jarrett On What He Learned Growing Up In Wrestling

Jeff Jarrett learned a lot about wrestling in the early days of his career. 

In an interview with Busted Open Radio, Jeff Jarrett was asked by Mark Henry about the influences in his character and particularly Jarrett's strut. Jarrett credited former NWA Tag Team Champion Jackie Fargo for his strut.

"The thing about it is, I grew up in the business. I was around wrestling long before I got into the ring and I was blessed to be a part and be around wrestling in middle school and high school. My favorite wrestler as a kid was Jackie Fargo. So the strut, with all due respect, I don't imitate Ric Flair or Buddy Rogers but the fabulous Jackie Fargo," said Jarrett.

In those early days of being around his father's wrestling promotions, Jarrett learned a lot which would help him his entire career. Jarrett said he learned one of the most important things right away. 

"One thing I learned day one when I got into this business is that you got to evolve. The best example that I have in relation to my career was the double J. When I came onto the scene in 1993, it had a certain slant to it but then five years later the Attitude Era was in full force and you had to evolve into that," said Jarrett.

Everywhere else Jarrett went to wrestle, he said he evolved to those surroundings and he attributes that quality to keeping his career in wrestling going after thirty years.

Earlier this year, Jarrett was announced as a member of the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame inductee class.
