Jeff Jarrett credits his grandmother and father for his career.
During an interview with Busted Open Radio, 2018 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Jeff Jarrett was asked about the early days of his career and his family's presence in his introduction to professional wrestling.
"My father being a promoter and my grandmother being a promoter was the biggest blessing I have and also the biggest curse getting into this business. But if I look over my thirty two year career, without question, without Christine Jarrett my grandmother taking a second job in the 1940s selling wresting tickets, there would be no Jeff in the Hall of Fame," said Jarrett. "And likewise for my father who wrestled and then he promoted, so I got to be around it," he added.
Jarrett did not mention why having his family in wrestling was a curse but he would go onto say how being around wrestling exposed him to things other wrestlers would never have seen and even shared a story about spending Thanksgiving with Sting and The Ultimate Warrior.
The WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony is April 6th and Jarrett will be entering the Hall of Fame alongside Goldberg, The Dudley Boys, Ivory, and Hillbilly Jim.
