Jeff Jarrett Pays Tribute to His Grandfather Eddie Marlin


We reported earlier this week here on eWn that Memphis wrestling legend Eddie Marlin passed away at the age of 89. He had been moved to hospice care recently due to multiple organ failures. For those unaware, Eddie was the father-in-law of Jerry Jarrett and grandfather of Jeff Jarrett. Jeff tweeted the following on Saturday:

“Today we laid to rest my grandfather, Eddie Marlin. Grandfathers n grandsons often work together; but, in professional wrestling it’s rare to actually have a match where your partner is your grandfather. I was 19 and Pops was 56 when we tagged at the Fairgrounds! Love ya Pops!”
