AEW stars Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett have teased new alliances ahead of the Double or Nothing and All In pay-per-views.
The duo will challenge for FTR’s AEW Tag Team Championship at this weekend’s (May 28) Double or Nothing event.
The match will be officiated by special guest referee Mark Briscoe.
Speaking with PWMania, Lethal and Jarrett addressed speculation that they want Briscoe to side with them, with Lethal arguing that he’s already an honorary member of their group, and Jarrett stating that any friend of Lethal’s is a friend of his:
Lethal: “Double or Nothing, I think Jeff and I have said it plenty of times on national television, or any time anybody will ever listen to what we’re saying, we’re going to become the next AEW Tag Team Champions and you ask will we get a new member, and I hope that you’re not hinting at that being Mark Briscoe because Mark Briscoe, one of my best friends in the whole world and you know, Jeff’s warming up to him.
“And he’s known Sanjay forever. I would say that he’s already an honorary member of the Lethal Connection. If I can use that name that you’ve dawned us with.”
Jarrett: “I’ll clear that up. A friend of Jay’s, is a friend of mine. It just goes without saying so. It just goes without saying, but Briscoe, he has a job to do this weekend.
“We keep kind of using the same kind of mentality, he’s going to do the right thing when the time comes. I’ll leave it at that. But the Trio’s Title, I’ll say this, I think Satnam Singh has the most potential of anybody on the AEW roster, candidly, bar none.
“But when we win those Tag Titles, me and Jay, don’t plan on losing them anytime soon. With the addition of Karen, you kind of look at our unit.”
Jarrett also teased new additions when discussing the August 27 UK ‘All In’ event, noting:
“I’ll get a little sentimental here, but if you would have told me six months ago that I have the opportunity to be heading to the ring with Jay Lethal, Sanjay Dutt, my wife, and Satnam Singh, which is truly a one in a billion, and maybe another member or two.
“But no, it really is a dream come true. For this opportunity to come, at this stage of my career. It is a chapter that I never ever thought that I’d see happen.
“And I’ll say this, 60,000 tickets sold and we’re three months out. That’s amazing and says a lot. So yeah, to say I’m pumped for that, that’s an understatement.”
