A few weeks ago, Jeff Jarrett was released from his duties as Vice President of Live Events due to changes in WWE Mangement when Vince McMahon stepped down from WWE this past summer. Now Jarrett is opening up about his future.
While speaking to Ad Free Shows, Jarrett has no idea what will happen down the road, but he is grateful for waking up every day and sober. That’s something he takes pride in at the moment.
“I get emotional thinking about this, I got a second lease on life, and went to [addiction] treatment and came out [in 2017], and they teach us something in treatment, to live one day at a time. … What’s going to happen for Jeff next, I really have no idea. But, I do know one thing from the time I wake up till the time I go to sleep every night, I do everything I can to be better than I was yesterday.”
Jeff recently appeared on WWE programming to be the Special Guest Referee for the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship match at SummerSlam between the champions, The Usos, and the challengers, the Street Profits. The following night, Jarrett teamed with Jay Lethal to take on Ric Flair and Andrade El Idolo at Ric Flair’s Last Match show.
Jarett and Lethal lost to Flair and El Idolo after Flair locked in the Figure-Four with Jarrett’s shoulders down for the win. The former six-time Intercontinental Champion and multi-time WCW World Champion has not wrestled since the tag team match, however, Jarrett has not proclaimed that he is retired from in-ring competition either.
