Was Jeff Jarrett’s appearance on TNA Impact Live handled right?

Wednesday, June 24th, Destination America aired TNA Impact Live. During the episode, a monumental happening took place: Jeff Jarrett, former co-founder and roster member of TNA and current co-founder of Global Force Wrestling (GFW) walked out to the six-sided ring for the first time since his departure from the company in late 2013. He and his wife and GFW co-founder, Karen Jarrett, addressed the TNA audience.

During their emotional speech, they announced that Jarrett would be returning for one night only as an Impact wrestler to compete in a King of the Mountain Match – the match that he created – on Sunday at the thirteenth anniversary of the company.

It promises to be an historic event.

The segment undeniably added to the night of surprises that TNA always shoots for anytime they go live, but certain aspects of the execution left a queer taste in the mouth, and begs to question whether the momentous occasion was carried out in the most effective manner.

But who is doing it best? Is there a clear headliner, or do they each satisfy a different need from the pro wrestling fans? Can they offer lessons to one another? Who is doing what right and wrong?

The Daily Jobber decided to break these shows down and compare how they perform, in hope to shed some light on these questions.

Let’s begin with WWE’s longtime rival TNA.
