Christine “Teeny” Jarrett Was Wrestling’s Grand Dame

Today we’re going to spend some time getting to better know the late Christine “Teeny” Jarret — professional wrestling’s grand dame — by way of talking with her grandson and biographer Brennon Martin.

Christine “Teeny” Jarrett—by all accounts—lived a true Nashville rags to riches story.

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. Regional wrestling, which once reigned supreme—particularly in these parts—fell from grace as Vince McMan Jr. built his empire through the 80s and into the 90s, but while it was huge, Teeny was Professional Wrestling’s grand dame.
