TNA Star Wants A Release, Announcer Quits, Jarrett

Ryan Clark

Partial Source(s): The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, can confirm that Austin Starr wants a release from TNA so that he can wrestle wherever he wants. According to our sources here at, it hasn’t been granted yet. Starr is currently serving a 90-day suspension due to a bad attitude. He was probably hurt the hardest of TNA pulled contracted talent from ROH because ROH is his main source of income. His TNA contract expires this summer, but TNA has the option to renew it at its current terms. There are some people in TNA who don’t want him back, but now that ROH is on PPV, they are opposition, and it becomes handing a talented wrestler to the opposition, which they might not want to do.

Details remain very sketchy regarding the condition of Jill Jarrett, Jeff’s wife. She did get out of the hospital in recent days after three or four straight weeks in after her lung collapsed and she had other complications. As noted before, Jeff and his wife have three young children ranging in age from 3-11. Jill had the youngest child while in remission, but the cancer came back shortly after she gave birth. We’ll try to keep you posted on but please keep the entire Jarrett family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Willie Urbina, the TNA Spanish announcer who came from WWC, quit his job in WWC after a dispute over the creative direction of that company.
