Jeff Jarrett Challenges British Royalty To Match

TNA Wrestling Founder Jeff Jarrett has taken his campaign against "freeloading Brits" to a new level, by criticizing the Royal Wedding.

In an exclusive interview with the UK's Daily Star newspaper, Jeff slammed William and Kate and challenged them to a match against himself and wife Karen.

Jeff told the paper’s Patrick Lennon: "I've always said Britain is full of freeloaders, but these two are the biggest pair of spongers I've ever laid eyes on.

"In my great country, the United States of America, we don’t waste money on useless phony families, their ridiculous weddings and the divorces that always follow."

In comments that have been picked up around the world, The King of the Mountain added: "If you want to see a real princess then take a look at my lovely wife Karen. She has it all – looks, class, poise and, most importantly, a JOB!

"When Will and Kate are on their FREE honeymoon, they should stop off in the beautiful city of Orlando and take us on in a tag team match to decide who the real Royal couple are."
