Jeff Jarrett surprised a lot of people by entering the 2019 Royal Rumble match. He was pretty much the only legend to join the match and he started a feud with Elias to start it out as the #1 and #2 entries. This was supposed to mark Elias’ heel turn.
On RAW the next night, Double J came out and continued that feud with Elias. This came after the news broke that Jeff Jarrett signed a new WWE contract.
Now Elias will have a chance to show his recently re-adopted heel persona. He will get to battle Jeff Jarrett in a one-on-one match next week on RAW.
WWE said that Road Dogg will be around as well. This could be a very interesting matchup, but it might end with another assault from Elias to further cement his turn to the dark side. That is said to be WWE’s intention with Double J’s return.
