• “She was really nervous when she showed up that day” – WWE Hall Of Famer’s Wife On Wrestling Chyna
WWF/WCW Legend Jeff Jarrett’s wife Karen Jarrett first became an on-screen character for Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA), while still being married to her first husband, WWF Attitude Era Legend Kurt Angle.
As she only worked as a valet, Karen did not actually wrestle, that is except for one match which took place at the TNA Sacrifice 2011 pay-per-view, that featured an intergender match of her and her husband Jeff Jarrett wrestling the team of her ex-husband Kurt Angle and former WWF Superstar Chyna in a losing effort.
Here’s what Karen had to say about the match and her female opponent Chyna, while being interviewed on an episode of ‘Insight with Chris Van Vliet’:
“People found out that I was going to have to do it. There was a lot of sh*t talked about how horrible it was going to be…
I thought it turned out well. But, I think I was most proud of that because when I walked in the back, you do this for wrestlers, but I never had it happen for me, people were clapping. AJ Styles came up to me like, ‘You did so good’.
Chyna was really nervous when she showed up that day.
I remember her being in her trailer all day and Terry Taylor was working for the company then and kept checking on her. She was one of the sweetest people that I think I have met in the business.
It’s sad, it’s very sad, but I have a great memory that I got to work with her.”
