On November 2nd, Jeff Jarrett shocked the world when he made his All Elite Wrestling debut on AEW Dynamite in Baltimore, MD. During a match between Darby Allin and Jay Lethal, a figure dressed as Sting appeared and hit Allin with a baton, causing him to lose his bout. The mysterious masked figure was revealed to be new AEW signee Cole Karter, but as Lethal was celebrating alongside Karter, Sonjay Dutt, and Satnam Singh, Jeff Jarrett’s theme music rang out through the Baltimore arena.
After he made his way to the ring, Jarrett hit Darby Allin over the head with his guitar as commentary mentioned his long history with Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt. He then got on the microphone, telling Allin that his alliance with Sting was his greatest weakness before recounting his family history in wrestling and saying that he was here to take over AEW.
According to a new report from PWInsider, Jarrett was brought into the area via Washington, D.C. and he was kept hidden until it was time for him to appear on the show. The report also notes that there is a belief his on-screen role will lead to a Jeff Jarrett vs. Sting program in some form.
