The first day I met Jerry Jarrett he called his wife Deborah and said, “We are having a guest for dinner.” Really enjoyed the time I spent with him. I’ll always appreciate his stories and the chance to pick his brain. RIP.

In 1993 Jerry called me, & that led to my career in professional wrestling. Because of Jerry Jarrett I worked in USWA, WWF, WCW, & TNA Without Jerry Jarrett my life would have been very different. I would never have met the people most important to me. Thank you Jerry. RIP pic.twitter.com/wiOUKyCoHO
