Jeff Jarrett and Conrad Thompson are both due to travel to Mexico in the coming weeks.
In addition to working on their My World with Jeff Jarett podcast together, Double J and Conrad Thompson most recently worked with one another for Ric Flair’s Last Match. The event, which ran in conjunction with Starrcast V, was helped put together by Flair’s son-in-law Thompson whilst Jarrett teamed with Jay Lethal to take on the team of Flair and his other son-in-law Andrade El Idolo.
The event was the second biggest independent wrestling show in the United States in the modern era, drawing a gate of over $448,000 and pulling in over 24,000 buys on PPV.
Now Jarrett and Thompson could be poised to work together again, this time with Mexican promotion AAA according to Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter:
“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”.
In May 2022 Jarett re-joined WWE, serving as the promotion’s Senior Vice President of Live Events but left the company just three months later with Road Dogg taking over the role. Meltzer noted that it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Jarret work some of AAA’s big shows:
“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”
Though the intention of their plans has yet to be disclosed, it appears the WWE Hall of Famer and Thompson have more prospective projects together moving forward.
