Jeff Jarrett vs. Kurt Angle
Believe it or not, Taz mentioned on commentary that Jeff Jarrett is now married to Kurt Angle’s ex-wife Karen. Before the contest, Kurt Angle said if any of Jarrett’s guys interfere, he will break their necks.
Round #1: The two minutes counts down. Angle stalks Jarrett as Jarrett circles around. Angle teases a takedown and then backs off. Angle then drops down to his back begging Jarrett to walk up. 30 seconds is on the clock as Angle sits back up. Angle goes for a takedown. Angle attempts a double leg. Angle gets the takedown and Angle locks on a rear naked choke as time expires.
We get an MMA style corner break with Jarrett’s crew hyping him up.
Round #2: Angle extends his leg inviting Jarrett to shoot on him. Jarrett goes for a takedown. Angle sprawls out and gets a kimora locked on. Jarrett breaks free and yells out, “Son of a bitch!” Angle with another takedown and gets side control. Angle attempts an arm triangle and gets it locked in. Angle breaks free saying he can tap Jarrett whenever he wants. Angle with a front choke and Jarrett gets his feet on the ropes to break it up. Angle with a lousy looking takedown floating over into an armbar. Angle breaks that and gets the Ankle Lock applied. Time expires.
Jarrett spits towards Angle. Jarrett’s crew yell at him, “This is your round Jeff!” It appears Gunner and Murphy rubbed something on the chest of Jarrett.
Round #3: Jarrett locks up with Angle and rubs his face in his chest. Angle favors his eyes. Jarrett with big right hands to Angle. We can then clearly see Angle getting ready to blade on the mat. Bad camera shot. Blood starts pouring down the face of Angle as Jarrett reigns down huge right hands. The referee calls for the bell.
Winner: No contest
After the match, Jeff Jarrett continues to hit Kurt Angle over the forehead with big right hands. Blood continues to pour out of the head of Angle. They do a close up of the blood literally pouring into a puddle on the mat. Jarrett yells at Angle that he is retiring his MMA boots and he will hold a retirement for Angle with himself, Angle and “you know who else.” Jarrett walks up near Tenay and Taz saying he is retiring from MMA undefeated.
