• Wrestling Legend Thinks Triple H Fired Jeff Jarrett To Rehire Road Dogg
We recently reported that WWF/WCW Legend Jeff Jarrett was released from his position as the Vice President of WWE Live Events, a position that was then filled with a returning Road Dogg Jesse James (Brian Armstrong), who was rehired by his D-Generation X comrade Triple H himself.
Wrestling Legend Dutch Mantell (aka WWF Manager Uncle Zebekiah / WWE Manager Zeb Colter) spoke about the situation on Smack Talk and speculated that Jarrett was replaced with his friend and former New Generation Era Tag Team partner (then known as The Roadie) because Triple H wanted to rehire Road Dogg and needed a spot for him.
Here’s what Dutch said:
“I think that Triple H was basically looking for a job for Road Dogg and he had to get rid of Jeff to put him in there.
I think Jeff was doing great with that job because he’s been around the wrestling business for long. Road Dogg has been around the business his whole life and so has Jeff. I hate anybody losing their job.
If you think back, some of those old grudges follow hard and are never forgotten. I do think Triple H may not have liked Jeff [Jarrett] very much and was looking for a spot for Road Dogg, and I’m not saying this is true, but he wanted to put him in that spot that Jeff was in.
You have to remember, Jeff is a Vince [McMahon] hire, and not a Triple H hire. Anyone who takes over the company wants your people in there.”
