The latest news on Jeff Jarrett’s new pro wrestling promotion is that it will be financed by a group of partners, not just country music star Toby Keith. Keith reportedly has a net worth of $500 million, which is said to be more than what Vince McMahon was worth before WWE stock shot up. The financial backers for the promotion, when the group was looking at buying TNA, were described as “Nashville music investors.”

Jarrett also recently appeared at a sports convention in Nashville on February 22. He wouldn’t talk much about the promotion, but he did confirm that it was “a go.” He also discussed the idea of doing a weekly Tuesday night TV show.

Details on Jeff Jarrett and Toby Keith Almost Buying TNA, How Bob Carter Turned Them Away

– The expected wrestling promotion with Jeff Jarrett and country music star Toby Keith is said to be a long way from happening. The partnership came together when TNA was for sale and Jarrett went through his Nashville music industry connections trying to put together a bid to buy the company. The deal was reportedly very close at one point.

Bob Carter came to Keith to finalize the deal and the two sides were close on a price, although they were not quite there. The belief is they were going to hash it out but Carter only had one request in selling, which was that Dixie Carter would remain with her title, have some power in the company and remain a TV character.

Keith said he wasn’t going to buy the company with any creative limitations so the deal actually fell apart because Bob Carter in the end was going to protect his daughter. Someone in TNA close to the situation said, “That’s why we all are still here,” noting if it was about business, TNA would have never survived after the big move to primetime TV and the Hulk Hogan debacle failed to stop the company from losing money. At that point, the feeling was from Keith and Jarrett that they didn’t need to buy the company as they could start their own.

When this story got out within TNA, those who believed Janice Carter’s memo about not selling realized they had been had.

Regarding Jarrett and Keith’s promotion, one person with knowledge described it as being in step 1 of a 10 step project and that it would likely be late this year at the earliest before it’s off the ground.

Konan continued by saying that Jarrett will be making a big announcement this week regrading a new product, and that likely it’s going to be a new wrestling promotion with partner Toby Keith. Toby Keith was one of the interested parties looking into purchasing TNA; but once talks fell apart between them, Keith decided to not buy at the same time Jeff Jarrett decided to leave the company for good.

Additional Rumors also stated that Jim Ross may be involved in this new promotion. Last week Ross tweeted that he had a meeting with a “Major Sport Concern.” This just fueled the rumors of his involvement.
