Jarrett said they can end it right now or take it as far as they want to go. Young asked if he was supposed to say “I’m sorry?” Young wondered if Jarrett would give him some fatherly advice. Young said when he was a kid, his father moved to Cuba and he never saw him. Young said when he came to TNA, Jarrett became a father-figure to him. Young praised Jarrett’s accomplishments. Young said Jarrett created TNA and gave “these maggots” (the fans) a better choice. Young said Jarrett was living the American Dream. Young said their childhoods weren’t so different, because Jarrett’s dad, a wrestling promoter, didn’t have time for his own son. Young said he and Jarrett both promised themselves they would never grow up to be their dads. Young said Jarrett was becoming just like his father! Young said everything in TNA revolves around Jarrett – and everybody else comes second. Young said it’s the truth, but his concern goes out to Jarrett’s three little girls who Jarrett is forcing to settle for second place.

Foley booked Samoa Joe vs. Booker T & Scott Steiner next week, and Sting vs. Kurt Angle in a King of the Mountain Qualifying match.. Foley said it looks like Jarrett has reached his breaking point and finally snapped. Foley said a few weeks ago he assured Earl Hebner he’d have a job for life in TNA, and now (thanks to Jeff Jarrett) he may never referee another match.

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
