So long. There are a lot of people on the WWE roster and each of them plays a role. Some of those roles might be a lot more notable than others, but there is often something for most of the people to do. This includes some retired wrestlers who are doing something other than getting in the ring again. WWE has quite a few of them, but now they have one less.

According to, Jeff Jarrett was released from WWE in April 2021, though it was not announced at the time. Jarrett has been looking for independent bookings outside of WWE, though it is not clear how long his no compete clause could last. Jarrett had been working for WWE as a producer, though there is a chance that he could be brought back into the company somewhere down the line.

Jarrett has had a nice career. Check out some of his better moments:

Jeff Jarrett makes his WWE debut: WWE Superstars, Dec. 18, 1993

Jeff Jarrett joins the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018

Opinion: This is a bit of a surprise, though at the same time, I can understand the idea of not needing so many producers around. Jarrett had only been back with WWE for a few years now and it is kind of understandable that he would be let go given the current circumstances. The thing about Jarrett is that he is talented enough to find work in wrestling somewhere, and I’m curious to see where he winds up.

What do you think of Jarrett? Where will he wind up? Let us know in the comments below.
