Jeff Jarrett Talks His Relationship With Dixie Carter Going Sour

So, were there any specific names from WWE that reached out to Jarrett about their interest in GFW? “I don’t think it’s in my best interest to [name them]. Yes, the grass is always greener on the other side,” Jarrett said, as he refused to name names. Despite walking away from TNA — on admittedly bad terms with Dixie Carter — Jarrett still received a text message from his former colleague after his dad, the legendary Jerry Jarrett, passed away earlier this year.

“Her kids and my sister Jennifer’s kids go to the same school. Also, my dad had seen her at football games,” Jarrett said of his family still having ties with Carter. “It’s not like we live in two different stratospheres. We obviously don’t run towards the same social circles. I can tell you this: my view on compassion and attempting to look through the lens of the person sitting across the table — whether it’s a business partner or family member — has radically changed. And so, I’ve got no ill will in my heart [towards Dixie]. I have forgiven her — for everything.”

Jarrett then accepted some culpability for the falling out of his and Carter’s relationship, admitting that they got off on the wrong foot right off the bat — when Panda Energy International purchased a controlling interest in TNA in 2002. “I know my role. It wasn’t all her,” Jarrett admitted. “I know I had my role in all of it — I mean going back to 2002. It was a mess, and it got worse. We’ve both gone our separate ways. That’s that, I guess.”
