Jeff Jarrett Comments On Signing With AEW

Jeff Jarrett joined AEW at the start of November

With one swift guitar shot to the head Darby Allin learned at the same time as the rest of us that Jeff Jarrett was ‘All Elite’, with the legendary former WCW and TNA/NWA World Champion joining AEW as the Director of Business Development, as well as undertaking an on-screen role.

Since signing with AEW, Jarrett has spoken of how the deal came about, saying the following on his My World podcast:

"The pieces of the puzzle started to fall together and the behind the scenes role, as well as in front of the camera, all those pieces started to kind of fall in and it didn't happen overnight. This has kind of been a work in progress for quite some time. It wasn't something that just kind of happened overnight,” revealed Jarrett.

Double J revealed that he was nervous ahead of his AEW on-screen debut:

"I don't know if I'm more excited about the behind-the-scenes work or the executive work or all that, or the in-ring stuff because Karen texted me Wednesday, about one o'clock or 1:30, and said, 'What are you doing?' I said, 'I feel like I'm a 19 year old rookie pacing around WMC TV studios.' I said, 'I'm nervous about tonight.' I'm thinking things through. I wanted it to go right. I wasn't all sure of that. So that's kind of one of the messages I want to throw out there. Folks, I've been doing it a long time, but I was as nervous as could be, and when the lights were restored in the ring, it was a surreal moment. The reaction had a little fresh coat of paint, little red guitar, little red and black guitar. It was really cool. I got a good crack on old Darby. I am super grateful. I'm excited. I'm ready to dig in, in all kinds of ways,” said Jarrett.
