Jeff Jarrett Doesn't Think Roman Reigns' Part-Time WWE Schedule Is Sustainable

Jeff Jarrett thinks a touring company needs it's top act almost every week

Speaking on his My World podcast, Jeff Jarrett gave his thoughts on the upcoming main event of WrestleMania 39 between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes, with JJ revealing that he thinks The Tribal Chief's current part-time schedule is unsustainable. 

"I don't remember a time off the top of my head that the industry had the opportunity because Cody, and they've positioned it, yes, it's lineage and winning a title that his father never won. That's emotional. Cody going away, maybe not having the most successful run. Started from the ground up. All the independent scenes. All that bandwidth. Obviously the story at AEW, it goes without saying, is a part of this story. Him going back and the opportunity. Now on the opposite side of the fence is a guy that hadn't been beat in three years. You don't really get those opportunities to come around," Jarrett began.

"I'll say this. If Roman didn't do the honours, I truly believe it would hurt Roman worse than it would hurt Cody. It's no secret Roman only works select shows. I mean, he's done Raw and SmackDown both here as of late, but for a long time, he was one day a week. I don't believe that's sustainable in so many ways in this industry. I just don't. You can use the analogy of a TV show, a movie, or a musical act. When you're a touring company, you better have your lead singer on almost every show. That's just the reality and when you don't, the product is less than. My understanding is Cody is saying, 'Line me up. Let's go to work' ala Cena, ala anybody in that top role, So it's a no-brainer."

Rhodes will face Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania. Jeff Jarrett, meanwhile, has established himself as a featured performer in All Elite Wrestling over the past several months. He recently unsuccessfully challenged Orange Cassidy for the AEW International Championship.
