IWA:MS Accuse Jarrett of Being Drunk and Attacking Teenager
IWA Mid-South promoter Ian Rotten is accusing Jeff Jarrett of being drunk and confrontational, after he told Jeff that there were problems with payment for a recent event. He claims Jarrett went as far as slapping his 17 year old son John and stealing his glasses. Rotten issued the following statement on Facebook:
So, I will address the 500 lb elephant in the room in full.
Jeff Jarrett was paid half of his money tonight and was told he would get the rest of it in 2 or 3 days as through one way or another, or just plain stupidity, we forgot to get the advance money out of PayPal. I know it sounds incredibly stupid, but it occurred. Am I embarrassed about it? Yes, but a very intoxicated Jeff Jarretts actions to follow would be absolutely ridiculous and uncalled for. INCLUDING knocking the glasses off of John Calvins face, taking said glasses, and for a time period threatening to not give them back and break them. Screaming at numerous people in the dressing room that it was their fault, they were behind it like some paranoid coked out raging idiot. Not saying he WAS coked out, but I will say he was drunk, him and Karen both and I have a locker room full of people that will back me up on it.
Jeff Jarrett will get his money in a couple days as promised, then he can spend it on a defense attorney as I will be going to the sheriffs department to swear a warrant out on him tomorrow for assault on a minor. This was not some wrestling angle or anything of that nature, and he had no right to take it out on anyone else but me. Don’t get me wrong, I was wrong. We should have had that taken care of, but Jeffs actions after that along with Karen insisting on going out to the ring to interrupt Drakes speech was absolutely despicable. That is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
In situations like this there’s no real way of knowing exactly what went down, but the timing is interesting with the launch of Jarrett’s GFW.
Former Ascension Member Works TNA Dark Match
Kenneth Cameron who was part of NXT’s Ascension group, had a TNA dark match against independent wrestler Aaron Solo during Saturday’s One Night Only tapings.
Cameron was released from his developmental deal in November 2012, after being charged with battery of a law enforcement officer and disorderly intoxication in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Bad Influence Think Samoa Joe Should Be Focal Point
In a recent interview with the Kevin and Gill Show show, Bad Influence said Samoa Joe should be the focal point of TNA:
“To this day, Samoa Joe is a guy a company can be built around,” said Kaz.
A unique athlete, it’s funny because he was a book that was judged by his cover, for a very long time and it took a while to get him into TNA and we were always fighting to get him in. Everybody was like ‘we gotta change his look and blah blah blah,’ but finally when they gave him the chance, he showed them that you didn’t need to judge him by the cover because he brings a unique intensity and a unique character to TNA and I think it would be a different TNA without him. He has changed the business.
