IN THE RING TNA World champion Mick Foley: Mick Foley warned the audience they this footage might not be suitable for young kids. The video played with Jeff Jarrett visiting the Asylum where he had his second match ever, and where the early years of TNA took place. Jarrett showed off his private dressing room and talked about watching his old man wrestle since he was 10 years old. Jarrett continued the tour until he was attacked by Mick Foley, who admitted that he hated Jeff’s dad (Jerry Jarrett) while beating the crap out of him. Foley beat up Jarrett in the dressing room screaming “this is where I starved!” and “this is where I made twenty five big ones!” (Editor’s Note: Tennessee was a territory known for terrible pay). Foley continued to assault Jarrett throughout the Asylum, and repeatedly smashed him with on the hip with a chair. Back at the iMPACT Zone, Mick Foley smiled at his handy-work being shown on the screen as the fans booed him. Foley said Jeff Jarrett has learned a very valuable lesson – that is, sometimes you can’t go home.
