Jeff Jarrett Signs With WWE for Backstage Role

Jeff Jarrett has signed a new deal with WWE and will be working as a producer (helping lay out matches), according to 1wrestling and PWInsider.

He also may appear again as an on-camera talent, PWInsider says.

Jarrett was #2 in the Royal Rumble last night and was eliminated by Elias, then appeared on Raw tonight along with the Road Dogg, and was once again laid out by Elias with a guitar.

Jarrett was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last year.

Sonjay Dutt and Shane Helms, who both also recently signed with WWE as backstage producers, were also backstage at Raw tonight.
