In Jerry Jarrett's lifetime he's experienced life and death, heartbreaking betrayals, amazing successes along with stunning defeats, none of which occurred in the wrestling ring. As crazy as the world of professional wrestling was, it didn't hold a candle to what went on behind the scenes. Jerry Jarrett's life can only be described as a rollercoaster ride. Author Jerry Jarrett has finally released his long awaited autobiography that covers his entire life. Jarrett has been called a wrestling genius and promoted professional wrestling for nearly 50 years.
Jerry, along with son Jeff founded TNA Wrestling in 2002. Mark James, co-author and editor for The Best of Times says, "If I had a quarter of the defeats that Jerry Jarrett has suffered in his life I don't know how I'd be able to keep that positive attitude he has. Jerry's so positive and always moving forward, it's somewhere between Gandhi and Jimmy Hart."
In the 1940s, Jerry Jarrett's humble beginnings on Nashville's 22nd Avenue only served to drive his spirit to succeed. Putting on live professional wrestling events at the age of fourteen, Jarrett's path to success soon became apparent. From ruthless business partners to wrestlers legitimately trying to kill him, Jerry always looked ahead to the future and never let the past stop him.
While most would have taken it easy after achieving the highest levels of success in wrestling, Jerry's personal drive did not have an off switch and led him to excel in other business ventures." Jarrett previously wrote and published, "The Story of the Development of NWATNA: A New Concept in Pay-Per-View Programming", looking at the creation of TNA in 2002.
