Current WWE Name Apologises To AEW Star For Taking His Job

Current WWE Name Apologises To AEW Star For Taking His Job AEW

Former D-Generation X member ‘Road Dogg’ Brian James has now said sorry to Jeff Jarrett.

Jeff Jarrett, who recently made his in-ring debut at AEW, was rehired as WWE’s Senior Vice President of Live Events in May 2022.

Jarrett did not remain in the role for long.

After serving as the special guest referee during the WWE Tag Team Championship match between the Usos and the Street Profits at SummerSlam, Jarrett left WWE in August.

His shoes were promptly filled by Road Dogg, who currently serves as the Senior Vice President of Live Events.

On the latest edition of his ‘Oh You Didn’t Know’ podcast, James noted that WWE cuts are an inevitable part of the business, explaining:

“Look, you can be doing your job, and one day someone not like it, and the next day you’re not there.”

After co-host Conrad Thompson joked that Jarrett probably thought this after leaving WWE, James said:

“(Laughs) Bless his heart, I’m so sorry. It hurts me when you say that. But I bet it hurts him a hell of a lot more. I’m so sorry Jeff.”

Several names close to Triple H received important WWE roles after The Game became the WWE Chief Content Officer in July.

In addition to Brian James taking over as the SVP of Live Events, fellow D-Generation X member Shawn Michaels was officially named the Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative, following his time running NXT during Triple H’s absence in 2021.

Jeff Jarrett debuted for AEW during the November 2 edition of Dynamite, aligning himself with the Lethal Connection.

His role with the promotion includes responsibilities behind the scenes as well as on screen, as the promotion’s Director of Business Development

Jarrett teamed with Jay Lethal at AEW Full Gear, where they were defeated by Darby Allin and Sting.
