Eric Watts: Jarrett’s “Not One Of Your Smartest People”

Bill Behrens

In a recent interview at for WCW & TNA star Eric Watts commented on Jeff Jarrett.

"As far as Jeff tagging up with Angle’s ex-wife, what have you, let me explain something about that as far as I’m concerned. That is so weird because boys are just boys. These guys, it’s got to be a fascination that if I can’t be a bigger star than you, man, I’ll show you if I’m sleeping with one of your girls or one of your exes. Because there are so many women that come to these events. There are so many chicks at every one of these events that you have your pick, I hate to say it. You’re on TV. You’re doing your thing. You can have the choice of people you’re with. You mean to tell me that you’re gonna sit there and get serious with someone else’s throwaways? Whether she left him, he left her, are you kidding? You don’t see this in football. You don’t see this in basketball. You don’t see this in baseball. You see this in wrestling and that’s what cracks me up. That’s how far the ego goes outside the ring that it’s like, oh my gosh, ha ha ha. And what’s backfiring is that Angle probably has more stroke. TNA has probably been looking for a reason to do something with Jeff because Jeff is just not one of your smarter individuals. I think he’s a good worker and I’ve said this. Good worker. Horrible on the mic and just not one of your smartest people."

Watts also said:

"TNA is a mini-WWE with a six sided ring and mostly midgets wrestling. So, I think that will change as they’re bringing in big guys, which I’ve always said that’s been the problem. I’ve always said the problem with TNA mostly is that when Jeff had so much power there, he wasn’t going to have real big guys there. He didn’t want the=2 0competition. He wanted to be King of The Midgets."
