From http://www.jrsbarbq.com/blog/live-smackdown-dolph-zigglerelimination-chamberreal-life-stories-tv-wrestlinglod-bookhawkdr-dea

An emailer asked me what I thought about recent TNA storylines involving Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Jarrett and their children. I'm not a regular viewer of TNA first of all but what I have seen of this storyline that's allegedly based in reality isn't my cup of tea. I could care less what the adults do in their storyline but having minor children involved doesn't personally work for me. TNA isn't my hill to die upon and I harbor no ill will toward them but I find it challenging to believe that some individuals actually think that this is effective, episodic TV.

Lastly, I'm sure that no one at TNA cares what I think, nor should they, but I'm merely addressing a question from one of our regular emailers. However, as Pink Floyd sang "Leave them kids alone."

I totally agree as JR is always on point!

It's every bit as trashy and awful as when the E brought Mysterio's kid in and they pretended that Eddie might be his dad. Angles involving family members are nothing more than exercises in bottom of the barrel-scraping.

Sure but when mysterio brought his daughter on her birthday gave us a chance to see one of the most diabolical moments of Punks career. (and that was awesome)
On the subject: I dont think they should even do this storyline at all. Kids or not I just believe this stuff should remain private. I'm guessing Kurt is not happy with doing this. :)

But Kurt could have declined and I highly doubt they would reprimand such an awesome star.

Got a point there Rich
TNA will hang on to Kurt as long as they can
I just think the whole angle is distasteful. I know I wouldn't like to relieve a bad time in my lfe, much less on tv
I smell a most disgusting promotional tactic for next year Wrestling Observer award :)

That little bit didn't involve calling paternity into question or an airing of a family's dirty laundry, so I was more or less completely fine with it. And it was indeed awesome (hilariously so).

Eh, Kurt's probably too hopped up on Oxys to really care one way or the other. Somebody could Olympic slam his cat through a coffee table and all he would be concerned about is finding more of those drug-flavored Skittles.

I don't think Dixie is anywhere near the vindictive asshole that Vince is. Screwing people over at Vince's level takes a certain degree of intelligence that I don't think Dixie (the wrestling world's female Michael Scott) possesses. I've heard rumors that she often rents two copies of the same movie just in case she likes it and wants to watch it twice.

CM punk sang to an actress playing Reys daughter.

Eddie and Rey were like family and the kids loved him and were comfortable with the storyline. Plus it wasn't like eddie slept with Rey's wife and had custody of them through her is it?

Kurt and his wife had a bitter divorce, she went to live with Jeff almost immediately. Surely Kurt is pissed off at the fact that his kids live with her and she married jeff not long after their own divorce was finalized. This nearly cost both of them their jobs! I think Jarrett was either suspended or kept of TV for while during this whole thing. Plus Eddie being weird asking rey's son to call him daddy was wrong but it wasn't going to hit home with the viewers. However, going through a divorce and your wife taking your children off you then 'losing' custody of those children to your ex-wife...it's bound to have struck a chord with many men throughout the world. If WWE had Jarrett and Kurt on their payroll and ran the same storyline, they would have been blasted throughout the media for it.

It's bad because losing your children is the worst thing a parent can go through.

I think its all in the name of show business. Is it pushing the envelope on bad taste, of course it is. But in the end its just another storyline that will have a happy ending. They all signed off on this storyline, no one is doing it against their will. I think the kids should be left alone but I also give the kids more credit than some of you. I'm sure they understand this is a show and being around pro rasslin your whole life when your father is one of the biggest stars ever, I'm sure they understand and are probably happy to be on tv.

Yeah, there happy to be exposed on TV for a tasteless storyline that is about there personal life. This storyline should just die at the next PPV and we can actually see some wrestling from these guys. I'm sick of hearing Karen talking about the kids and how wonderful Jeff Jerrett is as a father. This is a wrestling show not a reality TV show. Personally, if it was up to me, I would have had this storyline based around Kurt and Jerrett like it should've been.

My "liitle Brain" friend WWTNA. THE WHOLE POINT OF THE STORYLINE IS TO HAVE THE FANS DISLIKE KAREN AND DISLIKE JEFF FOR BRINGING THE KIDS IN THIS STORYLINE YOU DOPE. And pro rasslin is in a way a reality show. If you think most reality shows aren't scripted and editied the way the producer/director wants it to be you must be smokin that crack.

I know its a wrestling show and I know its a storyline dumbass. never said that bringing in the kids wasn't to put heat on Karen and Jeff if you can actually read but I don't think you can. All I stated was that the storyline should've consisted between Jeff Jerrett and Kurt Angle and bringing in Karen and the kids was just overkill and desperation to shove the storyline down our throats. But hey, If you like the soap opera storyline, good for you. :)

WWTNA let me share my infinite wisdom with you. You see pro rasslin is nothing more than a scripted play. That goes for ROH, PWO or any other indy high school gym half full, low budget show you bring up. It about a protagonist and antagonists. (google those words if they are too big to understand)
Until then little man lets keep the thinking to the people with a brain like myself, the one, the only, IPEEINTHESHOWER.

You must be on crack if you think you have a brain. Pro wrestling is Pro wrestling. I know its scripted, i'm not 9 years old. To say that wrestling is a soap opera is far from the truth. None of them has anything in common. Thats like saying ROH, CHIKRA, and Pro wrestling Japan is like a soap opera. You must not know wrestling very well. I'm going to let Kashdinero and The Brown One school you on that.

To say that wrestling is a soap opera is far from the truth. None of them has anything in common.

According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soap_opera), "A crucial element that defines soap opera is the open-ended nature of the narrative, with stories spanning several episodes." Wrestling, even in ROH and CHIKRA, has an open ended nature of the narrative (as how someone can feud with one person and then suddenly feud with another) and stories that span several episodes.

As for the topic in hand, I too feel it isn't right to bring in someone's kid as a reason to feud. Wasn't confortable with Angle/Jarret, wasn't comfortable with Rey/Eddie, just doesn't seem right.

One time appearance I'm alright with, ala Punk.

Bottom line is the whole thing is sick and it needs to be stopped. The CM Punk thing was harsh but you can tell that it was staged and that the kids enjoyed being there. Same with the Eddie thing cuz the kids got to be on tv with a man that they really consider to be an uncle and it was for a story. This whole situation with JJ and Angle comes from an actual real place and thats what makes it sick. If it was a joke and the Angles were still married in real life then that would be one thing, but they aren't and a storyline about it is just to far.
