Smackdown: Jeff Jarrett has been named special referee

In the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE suggested to its fans how one of the card matches of the company's next big match, Summerslam, could have a special referee contest. We are talking about the titled match valid for both tag team champion belts on the federation's main roster, with the Usos giving away their four belts, against the Street Profits, after weeks of a feud that moves from the rings on Monday Night Raw to those of Friday Night Smackdown, as the athletes of Samoan origin, are champions of both brands.

Already on Raw, with a nice curtain with R-Truth, WWE had made fans understand how the Summerslam match could have had a match with a special referee, given how the last contest between the two teams ended, with Montez Ford who had a shoulder raised in the count of three and then WWE wanted to wait until tonight, to reveal who will be the well-known character who will be Special Guest Referee in the next Big Four of the Stamford-based company.

Jeff Jarrett made a brief appearance during a backstage segment with Rick Boogs and Shinsuke Nakamura on the January 21 episode of SmackDown.

Raw: Jeff Jarrett will be the special referee

At the end of the last episode of the blue show that aired last night on FOX television screens, Adam Pearce wanted to surprise everyone, appearing from backstage in the arena, microphone in hand.

After seeing the main event close with an Angelo Dawkins win over Jimmy Uso, with the champion pinned despite having a shoulder raised this time, Pearce wanted to reveal who will be the special referee at Summerslam. The choice was the WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett, seen for years also on the TNA rings, which the historic WWF/E athlete had helped to give birth in the early 2000s.

JJ will therefore be the one who will manage one of the most important matches of the card of the next Big Four WWE, with the company that also wanted to broadcast a short clip on the career of its Hall of Famer, to make it known or recognized for the first time by fans who had never seen him on the company's rings.

In an interview with Andrew Donnelly of Wrestle Buddy, Jeff Jarrett touched upon several topics, including the current state of WWE. "Seven or eight or nine, ten years ago they formed the network and everything that was around it."
