Karen Jarrett comments on Braun Strowman incident Submitted by Aaron Rift on 08/02/2017 at 03:04 PM
During Wednesday's GFW media conference call, Karen Jarrett commented on the reported Nashville bar incident with Braun Strowman from a few weeks ago.
"Oh my goodness, I can clear the air. It was a silly incident where you have two people in the wrestling business playing their characters, being silly and it got blown way out of proportion. And the fact that the two of us are still in the news and it's still being talked about, that's a question that you took the time to ask I think is hysterical, to be honest with you. It's silliness. It's the wrestling business, we had fun with it and somebody took it and turned it into something more than it was."
According to the story told to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, Karen had approached Strowman about getting an autograph for her son. Strowman, not realizing who she was, was said to have blown her off and may have even sworn at her. At this point, Karen had gotten upset and revealed that her son was also Kurt Angle's son. When Karen threatened to tell her ex-husband Angle about the incident, Strowman was said to be very apologetic and even allegedly got on his knees and begged her not to tell Angle. Karen was still upset and said Strowman shouldn't have reacted like that to a mother even if she was just a fan.
