Jeff Jarrett Speaks On WCW Having Kanyon Get Thrown Off Triple Cage at Slamboree 2000

Jeff Jarrett Speaks On WCW Having Kanyon Get Thrown Off Triple Cage at Slamboree 2000

A year after Owen Hart's tragic death at WWF Over the Edge in Kemper Arena, WCW went to the arena to host Slamboree 2000--- in which, in a planned stunt, Chris Kanyon was thrown from the top of the Triple Cage.

On the latest edition of My World, Jeff Jarrett (who was there for both incidents) spoke about his views on it.

“Going into this a couple weeks out, when I knew I was going to be in the arena, I knew that I was going to go up three cages. I’m not going to say I had this crazy fear of heights, but I wanted to get as comfortable as possible knowing that I was going back into Kemper Arena, going back into all things that had happened the year before. The emotions of Owen, I had completely suppressed 100%. On the flip side, I knew that I was going to have to climb, literally, I think the top of that cage is 62 feet. Owen had fallen from 81 feet. I knew I was going to have to be working at the top of that building, and I wanted to get comfortable. I worked with some psychologists, and in a lot of ways, I had a lot of comfort climbing the cage and getting comfortable with it. I addressed that from a business perspective that I had to go perform in a peak performance. I addressed that, but, yea, I knew going in it was a unique set of circumstances.”

“Bad taste. Poor taste. You talk about living in a bubble, not thinking about it. A lot of folks, and I was aware of this at the time, and certainly there were a lot more folks aware of it, that when Owen’s accident happened, they thought it was a stunt. A lot of people left the arena that night at the WWE event weren’t really sure what they just witnessed. Here you are 12 months later, and you’re going to have someone fall off the top of the cage, falling 20-30 feet. There was just no upside to it creatively, publicity-wise, or execution of the match. To this day, I would love to know, ‘Why did we do that?’ I say we as a company, WCW. What was the upside to doing that?’"
