Jeff Jarrett opens up on relationship with Kurt Angle after marrying his ex
“In my world, that’s family. It’s personal. It goes without saying, in 2010, I spent more time in the ring with him, he has spent Halloweens here at my house. He has five kids, that’s hard to imagine. I’ve got three biological, he’s got five biological.”
“It’s family. Obviously, we all have our ups and downs, our ins and outs. But heck, I have that with my buddy at the gym who is always late and it aggravates the hell out of me. So it is what it is… (On whether or not he saw the storyline coming) No, the short answer is no. But it did, and it transpired. Look, that was a unique time behind the scenes.”
Angle himself remarried in 2012 with actress Giovanna Yannotti. The couple have four children (one adopted) together. Both Angle and Jarrett entered the WWE Hall of Fame in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
