Jeff Jarrett is a pro wrestling veteran and remains one of the very few legends who are still relevant even now. Double J finally made his way to AEW, but Jim Cornette isn’t happy about him possibly wrestling there.
Fans were utterly shocked about Jeff Jarrett’s debut on the November 2nd episode of AEW Dynamite. Jarrett appeared in the ring, along with his signature guitar, as he took out Darby Allin. Jeff Jarrett was announced as the new Director of Business Development right after that, and it is expected that he will help with possible future live events.
While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette blasted Tony Khan for possibly allowing Jeff Jarrett to wrestle in the company. Cornette started off his little rant by accusing Tony Khan of switching his drug of choice to something a bit harder.
“[Tony Khan’s] turned to crack apparently, the other stuff wasn’t strong enough. And here’s another thing, as much as I like Jeff Jarrett’s work, and even though he’s in good shape at his age, better than most people are at any age, g*ddamn they don’t need him in the ring at this point. They need him in the office, but if he’s going to be in the office he shouldn’t be coming out and doing angles and busting people open and promising body bags.
For Tony [Khan] to do a surprise debut of a heel that comes in, breaks a guitar over one of the babyface’s heads, busts him open, announces he’s going to f*ck with everybody there because they’re all a bunch of f*cking kids basically, and body bags are on the way, and the owner of the company an hour later says welcome Jeff [Jarrett] you’re going to be an executive. These two things cannot coexist can they? What the f*ck, why?”
There is also doubt that Jeff Jarrett will be able to draw money for AEW. It seems that Tony Khan left a few people scratching their heads about this signing. Regardless, we’ll have to see how he will fare in the company.
