It had been previously reported that Braun Strowman and Karen Jarrett were involved in an altercation in a bar, following the July 17, 2017 episode of “Raw.” The initial report stated that Jarrett verbally attacked Strowman after he refused to sign an autograph for her son, who’s father happens to be Kurt Angle.

Jarrett was recently on a conference call and gave her side of the incident:

Karen Jarrett Shoots On Braun Strowman Altercation

“Oh my goodness, I can clear the air,” said Jarrett. “It was a silly incident where you have two people in the wrestling business playing their characters, being silly and it got blown way out of proportion.”

“And the fact that the two of us are still in the news and it’s still being talked about, that’s a question that you took the time to ask I think is hysterical, to be honest with you,” Jarrett continued. “It’s silliness. It’s the wrestling business, we had fun with it and somebody took it and turned it into something more than it was.”

Strowman is currently scheduled to compete against Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at “SummerSlam.”
