Source Claims that Jeff Jarrett/Ian Rotten Incident Didn't Actually Get Physical

It was supposedly a "complete fabrication"...
- You know when an anonymous source is speaking up, it's time to pay attention and take it as gospel, right? Well, one has spoken up in regard to the Jeff Jarrett/Ian Rotten situation and said that it never happened, at least in terms of the physical altercation. To be fair, this one does have some circumstantial facts to back them up.
As you may recall, the report suggested that Jarrett got physical with Ian Rotten at an IWA-MS show over the weekend and knocked the glasses off the face of Rotten's seventeen year-old son John Calvin. The source in question spoke with WrestleZone and called the reports a "a complete fabrication." The source says that there was a dispute over payment but says that Jarret was not intoxicated (as reports have claimed) and didn't assault Calvin in any way. The source recounts the tale as follows: Rotten failed to pay Jarrett even half of what was promised and Jarrett cursed Rotten out twice, but that was it.
The site notes that Indiana, where the show took place, does not allow the sale of alcohol on Sundays and that no bar was available at the show. Jarrett was there with Karen Jarrett scouting talent for their new Global Force Wrestling promotion.
