-Executive Vice President of Anthem Sports & Entertainment, the parent company of Impact Wrestling, Ed Nordholm talked to Newsweek about his disappointment with the departure of Jeff Jarrett from his executive team. “[Jarrett] was a great assistance to me,” he said. “Unfortunately, as we got into the summer, I think the stress of trying to [overhaul Impact] clearly was starting to have some impacts on him and his issues to deal with the situation. We had to part ways. I regret that it turned out that way, but I’m grateful for everything he did for me.” Newsweek notes that Nordhom did not go into great detail about the personal issues that plagued Jarrett, “but the wrestling rumor mill swirled with speculation about Jarrett exhibiting erratic behavior at events.” FULL ARTICLE LINK

Anthem lived up to that contract and always treated me with the utmost respect as a businessman and a person.” FULL ARTICLE LINK
