WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett was a surprise entrant in this year’s Royal Rumble match when he entered in the number 2 spot and worked a nice spot with Elias to start the match until he was eliminated by Elias.
As previously reported, Jeff Jarrett signed with WWE and will be working as a producer for the company, as well as having an on-screen role when needed.
Jarrett came out on this week’s RAW along with Road Dogg and interrupted Elias’ musical performance. The two sang “Be My Baby Tonight” before Elias laid them out with guitar shots.
On PW Insider Elite audio, Mike Johnson noted how WWE might be using Jarrett from now on. While he won’t be seen every week, we will be seeing him every now and then.
“The crowd loved the Double J stuff, loved the Road Dogg stuff and I guess Jarrett when he shows up, will be used as an undercard feel-good character. They used Elias to lay Jeff Jarrett and Road Dogg out, I get it. It’s no different than DX laying out Sgt Slaughter or somebody else to kinda get some heat on people that the fans care about. We’ll see what goes on here.”
