Jeff Jarrett Comments On His Surprise Return During Men’s Royal Rumble Match


In case you missed it, WWE Hall of Famer J-E-Double-F J-A-Double-R-E-Double-T himself, Mr. Jeff Jarrett made a surprise return to the company as the #2 entrant in Sunday night’s 30-Man Royal Rumble match.

After receiving a tremendous ovation from the live crowd, Jarrett — complete with classic ring gear throwing things back a full 20 years — mixed it up with Elias to get things started. While the Drifter originally didn’t seem to mind sharing a room with a bonafide legend, it wasn’t long before he shattered his guitar over Double J’s back.

Given that Jarrett, a former WCW World Champion and the co-founder of Impact Wrestling (formerly TNA Wrestling) was doing the obnoxious, sing-a-long guitar player gimmick a full two decades before Elias made his debut on WWE television, this special moment was something of a passing of the symbolic torch from one generation to the next.
