Approximately 19 years, 4 months and 8 days prior from this week’s edition on RAW on Monday, Jeff Jarrett wrestled his final match on the red-brand as part of a tag team match where he and Tom Prichard were defeated by Chyna and Debra on the September 27, 1999 edition of Raw Is War. His last WWE match would be at that year’s No Mercy pay-per-view in a blow-off losing the Intercontinental Championship in a Good Housekeeping match. While Jarrett made an appearance on the January 28th edition of RAW (where Elias prevented he and Road Dogg attempting to sing “With My Baby Tonight”), and this year’s Men’s Royal Rumble match, he finally had a match against Elias on this past Monday’s episode of RAW. In the process, he set a new record; AIN’T HE GREAT?!?!
It turns out that, according to the Twitter account @WWEStats, Jeff Jarrett is now the record holder (usurping Zeb Coulter) for the longest gap between competing in matches on Raw at the aforementioned 19 years, 4 months, and 8 days (which you can watch the confrontation and the match below). When you think about it, Jeff Jarrett’s wrestling career now includes this new record, an appearance at New Japan’s Wrestle Kingdom, a title match at AAA’s Triplemanía, and too many Bound for Glory matches to count. Maybe Double J can throw in a cameo at Final Battle?
