EliteXC VP Jared Shaw Weighs In on Recent Rumors

In response to recent reports of EliteXC President Gary Shaw‘s possible departure from the promotion, MMARated conducted an interview with VP Jared Shaw. When asked whether Gary Shaw would be relieved of his EliteXC duties, Jared replied:

All the reports I have read have been absolutely erroneous. There’s no truth to CBS pushing Gary Shaw out or anything like that. Gary might not be as much in the limelight because of his other business, which is boxing. He’s also spending a little more time at home with the rest of his family. You’re going to see Jared Shaw everyday so you don’t have to think that Gary Shaw is gone. I don’t know why they would keep one Shaw and not another. We’re both here and Gary is still a major force. He’s still spoken to everyday…He’s a major part of this company and everything he’s done as a promoter we’ll continue to utilize and continue to follow his lead.

Among other things, Jared Shaw also addresses the rumors of CBS pressuring EliteXC to include Gina Carano on the July 26 card. Click on the link above to check out the interview in its entirety. Thanks to MMAPayout for the assist.

  • What about Jared screaming “STAND THEM UP” during a fight? I’d love to address those “rumors.”

  • Two Toes says:

    Wonder if he’s been taking PR lessons from Gary Millen?? Sounds eerily reminiscent of his “Pride is going nowhere” rebuttal.

  • Vern says:

    Is Jared Shaw that bulbous fatass who shills those sandwiches?

  • Rich S. says:

    i like how he speaks for himself and his brother in the 3rd person..

    no pronouns here, Jared Shaw and Gary Shaw don’t need pronouns..

  • Jason says:

    I could care less about hearing anything from Jared “Stand Them Up!” Shaw…

    Did anybody expect him to say anything else?

  • Jay K. says:

    Can at least one member of the Shaw family could wear a collared shirt? WTF is wrong with that douchebag family?

    The “kfed 2.0 representin.” comment was spot on.

    Rich, I believe Jared is Gary’s son, but point well taken. When your qualifications for a job consist strictly of having the right parent, it’s no wonder you’ll make stupid comments and act unprofessionally.

  • darkmetal says:

    Ahhh the Shaw spin machine. So Gary Shaw won’t be seen because he is going to spend more time in his primary business–boxing. Suuure…..

  • Kuch says:

    His statements actually make it sound more like Gary is out. “He’s spoken to every day…” Wow. That definitely makes him invaluable. Why didn’t he just say, “Well, he might be gone, I just hope I’m not too…”

  • Ross says:

    “He’s also spending a little more time at home with the rest of his family”

    the old family reason, yep that guy is definatley out.
