The wrestling industry has seen many pioneers come in and revolutionize the business like no other. However, bidding farewell to the world has always been a hard part for not only their close ones and family members, but even for the fans who have watched as a part of the hardcore business. Jerry Jarrett passed away recently, and his son Jeff Jarrett has now dropped a heartfelt tribute.
Jerry Jarrett, the father of Jeff Jarrett, left a lasting legacy behind him by playing a key role in countless iconic pro wrestling incidents. Moreover, Jeff embedded his father’s acumen and went on to become a success in the business in his own right.
Jerry Jarrett played a significant role in the development of professional wrestling in the Mid-Southern region of the United States, along with his longtime business partner Jerry Lawler. He was inducted into the National Wrestling Alliance Hall of Fame in 2009 and was called a “wrestling genius.”
Jerry Jarrett passed away at the age of 80 recently. His son, wrestling legend and WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett, paid a beautiful tribute to his father through a series of posts on Twitter, saying goodbye to him in the best way he could.
“When Things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low and debts are high, And you want to Smile but have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit. (1/3) …
Life is queer with its twists and turns, As everyone of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about, When he might have won if he’d stuck it out, Don’t give up though the pace seems slow, You might succeed with another blow.(2/3)
Often the struggler has given up, When he might captured the victor’s cup. And he learned too late, when the night slipped down, How close he was to the golden crown. (3/4)
Success is failure turned inside out, The silver tint of clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems afar, So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit, It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit! (4/4) ~ #Dad.”
The first person to report Jerry Jarrett’s passing was Dutch Mantell. We do not currently know what caused his passing, but he was surrounded by loved ones. He had been battling cancer when he passed away.
