Former WWE and TNA star Brodus Clay, known in TNA as Tyrus, recently appeared Pollo Del Mar’s Armdrag Takedown podcast, and below are some interview highlights via The Huffington Post.
On why he left Impact Wrestling, Tyrus explained some history between him and Jarrett, saying, “when Jeff Jarrett came along — because him and I have an uncomfortable history — I just wasn’t comfortable with the management.”

Tyrus then revealed Jarrett wanted him for the GFW Amped TV tapings back in 2015, however, Tyrus received push back from Impact Wrestling since Jarrett was ousted from the company when new management took over.
“They didn’t want me working for Jeff,” confirmed Tyrus, who “didn’t think it was fair” to be in the middle of a “personal thing” between Jarrett and Impact.
“Basically, it came down to either stay with Impact or I could go with Global,” explained the Pasadena, CA, native. “I was making more with Impact, and Global didn’t have the resources to pay me what I was making.”
“[Jarrett] was basically saying it was better for me to come to Global, because Impact was about to fold,” detailed Tyrus. “He was very adamant about that.”
“Two weeks later, at the TV tapings, guess whose ass is there working the shows? Jeff Jarrett,” Tyrus said in a jaw-dropping revelation. “I was like, ‘Bitch, [are]you crazy?!?’ Who does that?”
“Check it: If I would have quit and taken money out of my family’s mouths, went and worked there and then, ‘Oh, we’re going to have to go work Impact…’ How would that have gone?!”
