The PWTorch Newsletter reports that some of the anti-Jeff Jarrett wrestlers in TNA are glad that there has been a drop in the iMPACT ratings lately. The feeling is that the poor ratings reflect on the decision to have Jeff Jarrett as the main star of the show with people like Eric Young and Larry Zbyszko at his side. Even usual Jarrett supporters are showing signs of going against him, realizing that he s the wrong person to center the show around. The dip in ratings comes after weeks of TV without heavy X-Division air time or any Team 3D, with the main focus being on Jarrett.
“He’s hard working and a good guy, but he’s not the right person to lead this company on the air. Everybody should have known that a long time ago but at least now there’s no denying it, says one wrestler.
The chance of Jarrett losing his spot on top of the show is definitely something very real at this point. The people with the most to gain from this would be the wrestlers who are over with the fans but just aren t getting enough TV time to capitalize on it. Among the names that stand out would be Konnan, who now with the LAX is said to be more intense and focused than he has been in years.
