AEW Star Explains Why He Deserves TV Time Despite Online Criticism AEW

An AEW star has explained why he deserves TV time despite online criticism.

In November 2022, Jeff Jarrett signed with All Elite Wrestling, and aligned with Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt and Satnam Singh. Since then, the group has become a prominent part of AEW programming, which has led to some online criticism for the WWE Hall of Famer being used so often.

In a new interview with the Good Karma Wrestling podcast, Jarrett explained why he deserves AEW television time he gets and chalked it up to his emotional connection with the fans. He said:

“Emotional connection with the audience (is why I deserve AEW TV time). It’s just that simple and it’s something that, you know, it goes without saying and the naysayers, ‘Oh, he’s done this, he’s done that.’”

“All you have to do is listen to the people in the arena. They love me. There’s some kind of ‘F you Jarrett’ that they get going on but I think that’s a term of endearment. They absolutely love me but it’s the emotional connection. That will never go away.”

“The moves will continue to get more and more aggressive and more and more athletic. That’s just the nature of the beast. You look at things that will happen (at AEW in the ring) and I don’t use this word lightly, revolutionary.”

“But at the end of the day, the emotional connection with the audience existed 70 years ago and it’s gonna exist 70 years from now.”

“That’s what entertainment is all about and I don’t care if you’re playing NBA basketball, if you’re playing NFL football or if you’re in a Hollywood blockbuster. It’s all about connecting with your audience.”

On the April 26 episode of AEW Dynamite, Jeff Jarrett defeated Dax Harwood. Meanwhile, Jarrett’s tag team partner Jay Lethal beat Cash Wheeler on the April 28 edition of Rampage.

This seems to put Jarrett and Lethal in line for a shot at the AEW World Tag Team Championships.
