WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett has confirmed his return to WWE in a senior vice president role, saying that he’s excited about the journey.
PWInsider confirmed the news through multiple sources that ‘The King of the Mountain’ will be working in a “high-level executive position”, with one source describing the position as Jarrett “taking over live events”.
Now speaking on his My World podcast, Jeff Jarrett has publicly addressed his return and confirmed his new job title as the Senior Vice President of Live Events:
“I’ll leave it personal. What’s been stated, SVP of Live Events, my passion is in live events. I’ll leave it right there. It’s going to be a journey that I’m excited about. As it all comes together, you know what this means, I’m so ready for year two (of the podcast).”
Jeff Jarrett had returned to WWE in January 2019 as a producer, with that role quickly seeing Jarrett promoted to being a full-time member of WWE’s creative team before he quietly departed the company in the summer of 2021.
Away from WWE, ‘Double J’ has found tremendous success, both as a wrestler and in a variety of backstage roles. He founded Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, working as the Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming towards the end of his tenure. Post-TNA, Jarrett founded the ill-fated Global Force Wrestling promotion in 2014.
In recent months, Jeff Jarrett has appeared for Game Changer Wrestling, Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide, and the National Wrestling Alliance, the latter of which saw him cost Nick Aldis an NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship match. In GCW, Jarrett also wrestled for the first time in three years when he defeated EFFY at their historic Hammerstein Ballroom card.
