Jimmy Discourages Wrestlers from Negotiating Mid-Contract
Jimmy suggests the wrestlers must not negotiate with other companies when they are still under a contract. Here is what he has to say:
“If you can get a job with any company and that’s what you really want to do, go for it — but look, be on time, be dependable. Whatever contract you sign, don’t come back 3 weeks later – 3 months later and go, ‘Can I do this?’ Let whoever runs the company come to you and say,
‘Look, you know, you’ve really busted your, you-know-what for us, we really love you and we’re going to re-do your contract and give you a raise.’ Because if they’re the ones that say it, then they really mean it and are going to put you on a rocket ship to make it work.’’
Jimmy has created a legacy in wrestling over 40 years now. He has managed to bring out some of the biggest names in the industry. The popular names include Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart of The Hart Foundation. It also includes The Honky Tonk Man, ‘The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase, and other names.

Jimmy has been a part of wrestling since many years now. Regardless of the promotions or wrestlers he is working with, he wants a good reputation of himself. He believes in having a good reputation wherever he goes.
“Whoever I’ve worked for, no matter who, whether it was Memphis Wrestling or WCW or WWF or back to WWE again — I’m like a pimple on prom night, it’s hard to get rid of me — I’ve always tried to be colorful, respect the company, dress appropriate for it, and always say the right things, but I’ve been blessed.”
