The Cauliflower Alley Club is pleased to announce that professional wrestling's grand dame, Christine Jarrett has been selected to receive the club's posthumous award as part of the 56th CAC Reunion at the Plaza Hotel and Casino, Sept. 26-28 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Virtually every big name in wrestling in the second half of the 20th Century crossed paths with "Ms. Christine," as she was known to most. If they followed her rules, Christine "Teeny" Jarrett probably taught them a thing or two about staying out of trouble and saving money for a rainy day. If they got out of line, they likely faced The Grip.
Over the course of her 50-year career in wrestling, Teeny worked her way from selling tickets in the back of a Nashville, Tennessee shoe store to running a network of towns for Nick Gulas and Roy Welch to owning one of the most successful territories in the business with her son Jerry Jarrett, father of "Double J" Jeff Jarrett (which makes Christine Double J's grandmother).
Accepting the award on behalf of Ms. Jarrett will be Jeff Jarrett himself, who will be brought to the stage by Brennon Martin, another of Christine's grandchildren and author of the very informative and entertaining book on his grandmother titled, "Teeny" Professional Wrestling's Grand Dame.
As an extra added attraction at this year's reunion Brennon, with guests TBA, will also be part of this September's CAC "Learning Series" event where he will hold a discussion and teach a history lesson about professional wrestling's grand dame, in a learning series lecture that will thrill wrestling historians, women navigating their way through the wrestling business, wrestling fans and wrestler's alike.
Please keep your eye out for this and other Learning Series announcements in the days and weeks ahead and we look forward to seeing you all at the club's 56th annual reunion in Las Vegas!
