Before I go through my "shopping list" of the best talents the indy circuit has to offer, I've decided to take a little break to delve into this whole Jeff Jarrett thing once more. Why? Because it seems that for all the speculation going around the net these days, one nagging little problem remains....that 35% of TNA's assets Jarrett still owns. I've given one point of view from previous posts and, to that end, fashioned a possible scenario that could happen as a result.
What people don't seem to understand is that legally, Jeff Jarrett STILL OWNS a MAJOR piece of TNA capital. What does that mean? It means that even if this ISN'T a separate roster for a branch of the TNA brand, it very well COULD be a means to an end that could secure a more stable TNA brand in the long run.
Think about THIS: If Jeff Jarrett fires up a brand new promotion and it takes off, he then has a strong case to make for being able to buy out the rest of the TNA product as a whole, being the only other shareholder in the company, despite what the storylines are saying on television. PLUS, if the new promotion goes so far as to overtake the current product, TNA would end up calling HIM to take what remains of the roster onto his project.
Keep in mind this is the best case scenario. Worst case is that it tanks, in which case, he's still not really out anything since he will get kickbacks from the shareholders dividends paid out when TNA turns profits. AND, he still has the option of returning to the brand once the dust settles.
So what's the point in all this?
Jeff Jarrett is doing something new. That much EVERYBODY can agree on. Whether that something amounts to something that has to do with the TNA brand is COMPLETELY irrelevant because nothing that he does ultimately hurts the brand. This is a win/win situation, folks....think about it.
