UPDATE – It has now been reported that Road Dogg has been brought back into WWE as Jarrett’s replacement in his role as SVP of Live Events Booking.
PWInsider is reporting that Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett has officially departed WWE.
According to the report, the belief is that Jarrett finished up his official duties this past Friday (August 19).
As of this writing, no further details on the reasoning for Jarrett’s departure are known so we’ll let you know as more details are revealed.
Jarrett had been hired by WWE in May 2022 as Senior Vice President of Live Events Booking after being let go from his role as a producer in 2020 during the pandemic.
Jarrett also notably appeared on-screen several times in July 2022, culminating in his role as special guest referee for the Usos vs Street Profits at SummerSlam.
Outside of WWE, he of course also competed alongside Jay Lethal in a tag match against Ric Flair and Andrade El Idolo – which was billed as Ric Flair’s Last Match – at Starrcast the night after SummerSlam.
