An update has emerged on Jeff Jarrett’s backstage role with AEW, following his shock debut on the November 2 edition of Dynamite.
Jarrett made a surprise appearance on the show following Darby Allin’s match against Jay Lethal, attacking Allin with his guitar. Tony Khan then confirmed that Jarrett was All Elite, announcing him as the new Director of Business Development.
It was indicated that Jarrett will help to expand AEW’s live events calendar. Per Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AEW doesn’t currently have plans in the works for any house shows.
Noting that Jarrett will help AEW with international business, Meltzer wrote:
“Behind the scenes, Jarrett’s role is to both help AEW when it comes to international business, as well as possibly house shows. Right now there are no definitive plans for AEW to do house shows, but a lot of the wrestlers on the roster would like to wrestle more and have expressed interest in them.”
Jarrett notably re-joined WWE as the Senior Vice President of Live Events in May 2022. He finished up with WWE in August 2022. ‘Road Dogg’ Brian James currently serves as the WWE Senior Vice President of Live Events, under the Triple H regime.
