Jim Ross

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross shot down the rumors that he is in talks with Jeff Jarrett and Toby Keith to start a new wrestling promotion in his latest blog on JRsBarBQ.com.

“I have not spoken to Jeff Jarrett since he left WWE on a day that doesn’t rank too high on my list of fun days at work,” Ross wrote.

Jarrett left the company in October 1999 and was scheduled to fight Chyna at a pay-per-view one day after his WWE deal expired. While Jarrett wrestled without a contract, losing the Intercontinental title to Chyna at No Mercy, rumors are that he “extorted” WWE for a total of $300,000 to do the job.

Regarding talking wrestling with Toby Keith, JR acknowledged that he did have dinner with him and talked wrestling but discussions didn’t involve starting a new promotion.
