Jeff Jarrett is a pro wrestling veteran and remains one of the most controversial stars in the business. Double J finally made his way to AEW, but Jim Cornette doesn’t think his inclusion will do much for the company.

Fans could not believe they actually saw Jeff Jarrett’s debut on the November 2nd episode of AEW Dynamite. It still went down as Jarrett appeared in the ring, along with his signature guitar. Jeff was announced as the new Director of Business Development shortly afterwards, and it is expected that he will help with possible future live events.

While speaking on The Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette talked about Jeff Jarrett’s debut. Cornette made it clear that he doubts Jarrett will be a money draw like CM Punk was in AEW.

“Punk returned – I’ll give each man their proper respects, CM Punk didn’t grow up in the wrestling business and start his own promotion multiple times, but Jeff has never been in a position as a money draw talent like CM Punk was.

So Punk came and did bring pay-per-view buys and ratings, and they still couldn’t get closer to the WWE. Jeff Jarrett is not going to bring the numbers in those categories as Punk did as a wrestler.”

Tony Khan also explained why he hired Jeff Jarrett in the first place. We will have to wait and see how he will fare in AEW in the coming weeks. If anything, this got AEW fans talking for a while. Now they are all waiting to see who TK hires next in an attempt to draw buzz.
