– TNA boss Jeff Jarrett responded to Kurt Angle’s UK Sun interview comments by granting his own interview to The Sun. “The Kurt Angle we hired two years ago and the guy we have under contract today are two different individuals. He’s gone through a lot of change, in and out of the ring. For him to say that about Jill (Jarrett’s late wife) totally caught me by surprise. “I found him afterwards and said: ‘Kurt, you need to focus. You’re not hurting me. You’re not hurting my girls. You’re hurting yourself…’
“I knew my wife better than anybody. If there were anybody on this earth who could speak for her it’d be me. It wouldn’t bother her in the least. My girls didn’t watch it, they didn’t see it. As they age, if I have to sit down and talk to them about it I will. They’re growing up in this business and they understand it takes all kinds to make this business thrive.
“In reality it hurt only Kurt and the core of who he is. I feel sorry for the guy. I did not know he was going to say that. People will say it was post-produced or that this is just a storyline. But as a promotion, I let the post-production guys make the call. I told them: ‘You can take that comment out or you can leave it in.’ I’m not going to micro-manage, I’ll let those guys do what they do best.”
Jeff also noted that he’s not booked for TNA’s Turning Point pay-per-view in November.
