WWE’s decision to bring a Hall Of Famer back to the company has been hailed by Jim Cornette as “the most brilliant thing” they have done in a long time.
Speaking on his My World podcast, Jeff Jarrett confirmed that he had returned to WWE, taking up the role of 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).
On his Drive Thru podcast, Jim Cornette has praised the decision to appoint Jeff Jarrett to the role, going in to some detail as to what the former Intercontinental Champion brings to the table.
Jeff Jarrett has been named – and rightfully so – and this is probably the most brilliant thing that they’ve done in a long time, Jeff Jarrett has been named the Senior Vice President of Live Events.
He is in charge now of promoting – and live events, folks, remember that takes into account the television tapings also because TV tapings are live events in the place that they’re happening. Who better, who else in the world today has not only still the passion for it and the love for it, but the knowledge of it to be able to promote live wrestling events.
With Jeff, who has more experience probably anybody [else], not only the companies he started but growing up in the business and all the other things that he’s into because he’s got that drive, whether it be the minor league baseball or whatever the f*ck. He talks to people, he finds ways to put sh*t together. If he can assemble his own team or whip some of them into shape, I would suggest to you that, regardless of whether the sh*t product gets any better or not, they’ll have a lot more people in the buildings.
Jim Cornette has not been so positive about all potential WWE returns of late, having described The Fiend as “fake, phoney bullsh*t”.
