• Hall Of Famer Leaves WWE
According to PWInsider, WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett left the company last week.
He was recently appointed the Senior Vice President of Live Events in WWE, and officially finished his duties this past Friday.
Prior to this backstage position, Jarrett was hired by WWE in 2019 as a Backstage Producer, but was soon shifted to the Creative Team. He was then put into an Executive role for the Live Events.
Jarrett was let go from the company in 2020 due to COVID-19 related budget cuts, when WWE stopped doing Live Events due to the pandemic.
Double J acted as the Special Guest Referee for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship match between The Usos and The Street Profits at SummerSlam 2022.
The next night, he competed in Ric Flair’s Last Match and was pinned by The Nature Boy.
