WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett had returned to WWE in May 2022 in a backstage role as the Senior Vice President of Live Events. He would go on to make an on-screen appearance as well when he was selected as the Special Guest Referee for the bout between the Usos and The Street Profits at Summerslam.
Jeff Jarrett’s Wife opens up on his WWE Departure
According to reports Triple H wanted “his people” to be around the corner which lead to Jeff Jarrett leaving WWE even after lending a role at a PPV. Now, Jeff Jarrett’s wife Karen Jarrett has reflected in an interview that she feels “blessed” that her husband is not the part of the company anymore.
In the latest edition of Ask Karen Anything, she said that the recent changes in power dynamics of the company would not have favoured Jarrett anyway and thus it’s a blessing that he left.
She also said that Jeff had much more to offer “in-ring” rather than being limited to working as a backstage manager. She also felt that Jeff Jarrett would have been restricted working backstage with the kind of experience and knowledge he has and therefore she feels that God wanted to help them in this kind of situation so he did what’s best for both of them.
Karen explained- “I think it’s a blessing that he’s not there. I still think he has so much to offer to the business inside the ring and, just, I think he would’ve been limited working there with all the knowledge that he has. …
I don’t know that he would’ve been truly happy with the changes that were made, so I think God was taking care of us by doing that.”
Though it is still not clear what Karen wanted to convey with the “in-ring” potential of Jarrett, whether it’s another in-ring return or closely working to produce matches to monitor in-ring action.
We have not heard from Jeff Jarrett since he has left the company and it is unknown if he’ll return to a wrestling promotion or WWE in future for a backstage role or an in-ring return. But for now if Karen is to believed both are pretty satisfied with his exit from the company.
