• “I kind of got pissed” – Dustin Rhodes On Jeff Jarrett’s Recent Move In AEW
WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett recently debuted in AEW and called himself “The Last Outlaw”.
During an interview on the ‘Sports Guys Talking Wrestling’ podcast, Old School WWF/WCW Veteran Dustin Rhodes (fka Goldust), who also works in AEW, wasn’t happy about it and said the following:
“Jeff Jarrett came aboard, and he calls himself ‘The Last Outlaw’ and I kind of have beef with him because of that. I consider myself, since I’m still working and still working at a high capacity, The Last Outlaw, the last of my kind from back in the day. It’s like a badge of honor to me, he called himself that, and I kind of got pissed. I love Jeff.
Jeff has an extensive background for stuff like this, for the live events, for international distribution, things like that. He’s been behind the camera, in the truck, as a director and running the shows with TNA back in the day. Now he comes aboard to help us out with the live events and in the buildings, I think it’s going to be great and he’s going to make an immediate impact.
AEW, we’re going on 4 years, and we’re growing. We’ve had a lot of stumbles along the way, but we’re getting better and better. Right now, it’s such a great time to be part of the company and something that started from the ground up, and look where it’s at right now. I love watching it when I’m home and there.
Coaching these kids and watching them grow from day one, it’s incredible. These kids have come together and are working like a team. It feels like that team atmosphere.
Somebody complains, every company has that, but for the most part, we are all together and working hard for the same goal, which is to be the best wrestling company on the planet. That’s a tall order, but we’re giving it our best shot.”
Many fans have pointed out on Social Media that The Undertaker called himself The Last Outlaw in 2011.
Dustin Rhodes had several stints in the World Wrestling Federation (1990-1991, 1995-1999, later WWE 2002-2003, 2005-2006 & 2009-2019), in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1991-1995 & 1999-2001) and – last but not least – in Total Nonstop Action! (TNA, 2004-2005 & 2007-2008).
Like him, Jeff Jarrett also had multiple runs with all 3 promotions in the past.
Now they’re both in Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling together, where they are surrounded by other Old School Wrestling Legends, including Sting, Chris Jericho, Billy Gunn, The Hardy Boyz, Christian Cage, Paul Wight (The Big Show), Arn Anderson, Mark Henry, Taz, Jim Ross, … & more.
Jarrett made his in-ring debut in AEW at the Full Gear 2022 PPV. He teamed up with Jay Lethal to lose to Sting & Darby Allin.
