Jeff Jarrett seems to be doing much better
He wish Jeff a very speedy recovery indeed

What's the story?

Professional wrestling veteran and legend, Jeff Jarrett had recently checked into rehab for issues arising from alcohol addiction. His wife Karen shared a picture with her husband, from the rehabilitation facility where Jarrett is currently based.

We are glad to see that Jarrett seems to be recovering, as evidenced by the picture his wife uploaded on social media recently. Thanks to No DQ for this very picture.

In case you didn't know...

Jeff Jarrett rejoined Impact Wrestling in January this year, but went on a leave of absence owing to his personal issues only months after he came on board.

Even though there was a merger between Impact Wrestling and Global Force Wrestling earlier this year, Impact Wrestling severed all ties with the latter, quite recently.

Jarrett's personal problems, by all indications, arose from his drinking issues. The legend was allegedly found passed out in the locker room at a local Canadian promotion, where he was wrestling.

The heart of the matter

Even though Jeff Jarrett seems to be going through the lowest point in his life right now, we're glad to see that he has decided to seek help to sail through this phase of his life.

Jarrett was intent upon rebuilding Impact Wrestling, not very long ago, but now that his association with the company is no more, he will look to get back on his feet and maybe continue to entertain us in the ring.

What's next?

Impact Wrestling has relocated to Canada. The Global Force partnership is a matter of the past. Jeff Jarrett will have to forge a new legacy, outside the company, for the time being.


Author's take

Jeff Jarrett was nothing but a gentleman to our team during Impact Wrestling's visit to India and it's disappointing to see him undergo such trying times. We send our best wishes to the professional wrestling legend.
