Jeff Jarrett will be part of one of the more unusual matches of his career when he teams with his wife Karen and Jay Lethal to face Mark Briscoe, Papa Briscoe, and AEW referee Aubrey Edwards.
At Double Or Nothing Aubrey Edwards tried to intervene when Mark Briscoe was taken out while acting as special referee for the AEW Tag Team Title match between FTR and Jarrett & Lethal. Before she could get to the ring, however, Karen Jarrett took Edwards out with an almighty guitar shot that Double J would have been proud of.
Now, the Jarretts and Jay Lethal are on a collision course with Mark Briscoe and his father Papa Briscoe who will be joined by Aubrey Edwards who will be making her in-ring competitive debut for AEW when the match takes place.
Speaking on his My World podcast, Jeff Jarrett discussed the upcoming bout with co-host Conrad Thompson and jokes that his worst fear could become true if he causes Aubrey Edwards to quit the business; some fans might start to like him:
“Karen Jarrett doesn’t know a wrestling hold, not one. I can’t speak for Aubrey, but I can speak for Karen and Conrad, you may or may not be able to speak for her, but I would say that Aubrey is in for an ass-whooping. It’s just kind of that simple. Folks, I could just go back to the 70s or 80s and hear, ‘Folks, if you’re expecting to see a wrestling match, if you’re expecting to see submission holds, if you’re expecting to see [this or that], don’t come.’ I’ll say that to kind of the AEW fanbase.
“If you’re expecting to see — Uncle Dave, and I diplomatically say this with love, if you’re expecting to see a five-star or even a four-star, we’re not gonna see that. We’re gonna see a senior citizen in Papa Briscoe, in Aubrey Edwards, a glory-hound dramatic diva, ballet princess, twinkle toes herself, she is gonna get paint-brushed from one end of DC to the other. She’s gonna want to change professions.
“She’s not pretending to be a wrestler because she said she’s not a wrestler, but she’s probably gonna want to hang up her stripes and get out of the wrestling business altogether. My greatest fear of that, not if but when Aubrey Edwards quits, is that I think, in some folks’ eyes, I could become a fan favorite, and that is my worst nightmare. They don’t like me, and I don’t like them.”
