PWTorch has confirmed that Jeff Jarrett has been added to the WWE creative team. This will be a full-time position for Jarrett. In addition to his duties as a member of the creative team, Jarrett will also continue to serve as a producer for WWE.
Jarrett has overcome personal problems and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last year. He appeared at the Royal Rumble in January and shortly after was hired as a producer. Sources tell PWTorch that Jarrett is a totally different person than he was in the past and he has repaired a lot of the bridges he burned with certain individuals in WWE.
Sources tell PWTorch that Jarrett will continue to be a producer for WWE in addition to fulfilling his role on the creative team. Jarrett is expected to bridge the gap between creative and talent given that he will see things from both sides with his roles behind the scenes in WWE.
Jarrett is the latest addition that Vince McMahon has made to the creative team recently. Paul Heyman has been used to work on Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar’s storylines. Bruce Pritchard has also been added to the team recently as a senior VP. Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com was the first to report on Jarrett being added to the WWE creative team.
Radican’s Analysis: This is turning out to be quite the redemption story for Jarrett. He has clearly mended fences with not only WWE brass, but also several others behind the scenes who didn’t have good things to say about him in the past. It’s shocking to see the former owner of Impact now working closely with Vince McMahon as a member of the creative team in WWE, but this is also a heart-warming story of redemption.
Jarrett has overcome a lot of personal problems recently and is now moving up the ranks in WWE. This move also seems to be a clear indication that Vince is looking to surround himself with established creative minds to help him craft WWE storylines, as he recently brought back Bruce Pritchard and has also been leaning on Paul Heyman recently to help out with Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar’s storylines.
