On the recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer stated the reason why the Jeff Jarrett was booked for WWE’s huge summer show Summer Slam.
“The deal is, it’s Nashville. From a national audience standpoint, whatever. But, it’s Jeff Jarrett, you know, again, the Jarrett family in Nashville goes back 55 years.” Meltzer added: “So it’s, you know, I mean, I can see for the Nashville market and he can go do promotion. They still got a lot of seats to fill. I get it, I definitely get it. I don’t know if this is just a one-timer or if they’re going to introduce him as a regular character, but I was very surprised when they announced Jeff Jarrett that he didn’t come out.” (H/T Ringside News)
