WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett has reportedly parted ways with the company following Triple H’s appointment as Chief Creative Officer.
Double-J would have been named senior vice president of live events in May 2022. He oversaw all of the company’s live event production and management. However, following Vince McMahon’s retirement from the company, it looks like Jarrett may be gone.
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, the former Intercontinental Champion stepped down as senior vice president of live events last week. Several people within the company believe he ended his official duties on Friday, but Johnson noted he could not confirm the timing.
It’s unclear whether the change in management and The Game assuming his role as Chief Creative Officer played a role in Jarrett’s exit from the company.
Jeff Jarrett had an on-screen role at WWE SummerSlam
At the biggest party of the summer, which took place last July, Double-J was named the special guest referee for the undisputed tag team title match between The Usos and The Street Profits.
The event took place in Nashville, Tennessee, where Jeff Jarrett is billed from. It wasn’t the only match he took part in this weekend. He also participated in Ric Flair’s final match, which took place the night after SummerSlam. The Hall of Fame teamed up with AEW star Jay Lethal to take on The Nature Boy and Andrade El Idolo in a tag team match, which Flair’s team won.
During his long wrestling career, Jeff Jarrett won the WCW World Heavyweight, European, Intercontinental and Tag Team Championships. He is also known for being the co-founder of IMPACT Wrestling, along with his father Jerry Jarrett. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018.
It remains to be seen what awaits Double-J following his announced departure from WWE.
