Jeff Jarrett Involved In Physical Altercation With Son Of Indie Promoter

Jeff Jarrett is set to give more details about his new wrestling promotion called “Global Force Wrestling” later today. However, over the weekend, he and his wife Karen Jarrett had some problems at an independent show.

Dr. Jerry Wiseman of The Examiner is reporting that Jeff Jarrett was involved in a physical altercation with 17 year old John Calvin, the son of IWA Mid-South promoter Ian Rotten, at Sunday night’s IWA Mid-South event. Jarrett was upset that he did not receive all of his check that was promised by Ian Rotten the promoter. Apparently Jarrett was given half of his pay at the show and was promised that he would receive the rest in “two to three days.” This led to Jarrett cussing out workers and either slapping Calvin’s glasses off his head or breaking them.

Ian Rotten issued a statement through his Facebook page: later said:

“Jeff and Karen Jarrett were both intoxicated. I have a locker room full of people to back me up on that.”

One IWA wrestler, who asked not to be identified, stated that at one point, Jarrett was “out of control” while also being egged on by his wife Karen, who reportedly threatened to go to the ring and “expose” Rotten while Drake Younger was taking part in an interview.

“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, he and Karen and I both 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.”
