** If you look at wrestlers who have pissed Vince [=McMahon=] off, their profile is dramatically reduced in the the ongoing "legend" of WWE. Smaller acts like Dawn Marie are practically invisible while big names like Macho Man have had their legacies diminished. (In Jeff's case, it's a case of burning down the bridge behind him in '99, and then turning around and firing missiles over the canyon for 15 years.) In 1999, there is no way Jeff Jarrett could've foreseen the digital future, how wrestlers can live forever online. He might have won a victory over Vince, but only in exchange for never being mentioned or canonized on the WWE Network, except for the actual ''Raw''[='s=] and [=PPVs=] he was on. On a related note, there actually was a mass lawsuit involving guys from the Attitude Era and prior who had contracts that included a percentage of VHS/DVD sales. When those shows started to appear on the Network, the royalty checks for those guys dried up fast. Kevin Nash brought up on ''Legends with JBL'' that the Network canonizes older guys and keeps their names relevant, boosting their profiles for autograph signings and appearances so they can continue to trade on their old performances. Jarrett has the spent the last 15 years running competing promotions that have done more to keep him relevant than his WWE run.

Under no obligation to work the show and feeling that losing to Chyna would make him look bad, Jeff gave Vince an ultimatum: either he would get paid more money for doing the job, or he would leave the company without dropping the title.

When he and Ray González had a falling out that resulted in González winning the NWA World Heavyweight Championship in 2005, González was immediately stripped of the title and him winning the belt was left out of the NWA and TNA's records. After the NWA took their title belts out of TNA though, they did officially recognize that Ray González beat Jarrett for the World Heavyweight Championship.

It's similar to [[Wrestling/RicFlair Ric Flair's]] strut except he smoothly swings his arms with two fingers extended and cross-walks his legs while finally raising his arms in an "I've got it!" motion. And it is so awesome that even Flair's strut is child's play compared to Jarrett's.

'''Jeffrey Leonard "Jeff" Jarrett''' (1967-) is a third-generation [[ProfessionalWrestling pro wrestler]], active in Wrestling/{{WCW}} and [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} WWF]], and the co-founder of both Wrestling/{{TNA}} and Global Force Wrestling. The son of legendary promoter Jerry Jarrett, he opened in 1986 as a babyface country singer; hence his [[TheArtifact artifact]] gimmick, that of [[RockersSmashGuitars smashing guitars over peoples' heads]]. But he had trouble getting over with fans, who dismissed his exposure as pure {{nepotism}}.
