Jeff Jarrett, who works at WWE as a producer, has weighed in on Mickie James' "care package" from WWE.
James was released by WWE on April 15 and on April 22 posted a photo of her "care package" sent to her by WWE, which arrived in a trash bag. The tweet caused a stir in the wrestling world, with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon addressing the situation online and announcing they had fired the person responsible.
Speaking to Abhilash Mendhe of Sportskeeda, Jeff Jarrett gave his thoughts on the situation.
"Obviously I've known Mickie her entire career. Incredible talent. You know, that story broke and without knowing all the details, it took in my opinion... how the bag got there. Cosmetically it didn't sit well with a lot of folks. but also know that there's a lot of discussion in the world we live in with social media and clicks. I get it. I completely understand it. But without... look, there's a lot of things that aren't always what they truly appear to be. I don't know who shipped it, how it was shipped, what was in that bag, what was in the contents of that bag. There's so many questions, what if? But I know one thing it made great headlines last week and a lot of discussion. But at the end of the day I don't think either side... Mickie's a future Hall of Famer without question. But it was a unique situation, difficult for both sides but I think it's water under the bridge at this point," he said.
James posted a statement on social media following the incident, saying she didn't believe WWE had malicious intent when the bag was sent. You can view her full statement by clicking here.
