Conflicting stories are surfacing all over the place regarding the backstage drama going on in TNA between Jeff Jarrett and Kurt Angle.
One of the main differences is whether Karen Angle has actually moved in with Jeff Jarrett or not. Mark Madden said exclusively on the Voice of Wrestling radio show Monday night that he heard she had moved in with Jarrett, but another source told me yesterday she has not. Sources are consistent though on the two having a romantic relationship and spending a lot of time together.
There’s a mixed bag of emotions when it comes to how the locker room is feeling about the situation. I’ve been told that some even think this whole saga could be a work that Russo has been known to do in the past. Reasons for this could be another feud between Kurt and Jeff, bringing Karen back to television, or simply testing the other employees to see if they’ll pick sides. Punishment would then be given to those that do. The idea that this entire thing could be made up is unlikely, but is definitely being considered given the "bizarre" nature of this whole thing. Because of this, a lot of the boys are just keeping their mouths shut until it all blows over.
Kurt Angle has been openly telling people that he wants to take over the head of creative. He’s made it known that he is not happy with the direction of the company, both from the creative and business end of things. We can also confirm that he has stated on more than one occasion he would leave once his contract is up this fall if he doesn’t get the book.
Jarrett has been telling people that he left on his own accord, but there are still those being told that Dixie took him off television and made him stay home due to lying to her about his relationship with Karen.
I have also heard that most of the boys do not miss Jarrett being there outside of his close, loyal supporters. However, there are also those that do not trust Kurt and his intentions.
We will have more on this developing story as soon as new details come out.
