Jeff Jarrett Reflects On Wrestling AEW Match After Father Jerry’s Death


AEW’s Jeff Jarrett is remaining positive, even after the recent passing of his father, legendary wrestling promoter Jerry Jarrett.

The older Jarrett died on February 14, aged 80, and tributes have been paid to him by several wrestlers and companies.


A day after his father’s passing, Jeff Jarrett competed on AEW Dynamite and was on the losing end of a ten-man tag-team match.

Reflecting on his father’s passing during the latest edition of his My World podcast, Double-J reflected on a mixed couple of weeks for him. He said,

“What a wonderful wacky life experience, really over the last two weeks. The ups and downs of life and sometimes the lows are unexpected but look, out of every low, something good comes out of it.”

Jarrett added that he knows it was right for him to wrestle so quickly after his father’s death as it helped serve as a coping mechanism.

Speaking about the tributes to his father, Jeff said he wishes Jerry was able to hear the kind words from the likes of The Rock, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, and others. He added,

“I just wish my dad could have heard, that’s the one thing that does get me emotional, I wish he could have heard all those kind words that were said.”

The wrestler, who also operates as AEW’s Director of Business Development, said that there will be an episode of his podcast that discusses his father’s career and legacy in due time.
