An update has emerged on Jeff Jarrett’s next move, following his WWE departure.
Jarrett left his position as WWE Senior Vice President of Live Events in late-August, after only rejoining the company in May.
In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer stated that he believes Jarrett’s upcoming trip to Mexico will likely be regarding his relationship with Lucha Libre AAA.
Discussing a possible route for Jarrett post WWE, Meltzer noted:
“Something is likely happening with Jeff Jarrett and maybe Conrad Thompson. On their podcast, they talked about how both were going to Mexico in a few weeks. They didn’t say what for. Jarrett, Thompson, Dorian Roldan and Eric Bischoff went to dinner in Dallas this past week.
“Thompson said he and Jarrett would not be starting up a promotion. Jarrett is always looking to start a new promotion and get backing. Jarrett did an angle with Latin Lover earlier this year but then it wasn’t followed up on as Jarrett was back in WWE.
“Now with Jarrett out of WWE and his long history in AAA, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he winds up doing big shows here. We’re told that no deal for Jarrett has been done as of yet, but they are wanting to work with Thompson in opening up the U.S. market.
“AAA obviously wants to run the U.S. after getting Spanish language television and there have been talks for years, but no deal has been reached. We’re told that the TV deals that they have been offered are too one sided in the sense all the benefits would be to the station and very little to the promotion.”
‘Road Dogg’ Brian James has taken over the Senior Vice President of Live Events role, effectively replacing Jarrett.
Following Vince McMahon’s retirement in July, there is reportedly expected to be a ‘changing of the guard‘ backstage, with Triple H running creative and Talent Relations, and Stephanie McMahon & Nick Khan working as co-CEOs.
