WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett was back in action as he worked his second match under the WWE banner since making his return to the sports entertainment company and signing a new deal that placed him in a different position.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Portland, OR at the Moda Center on the USA Network, he battled it out with Elias in a singles match with Road Dog at ringside. Elias ended up winning the match.
It turns out that Jarrett set a WWE record as the company noted in a recent post on their official Twitter account that Jarrett now holds the record for the longest time in between matches on the flagship show of the company. In fact, his last match on Raw was 19 years and 4 months ago as he broke the record that was held by Zeb Colter, who competed in matches that were 16 years apart.
“Longest gap between competing in matches on #RAW: Old Record: 16 years, 3 months, 23 days by Zeb Colter. New Record: 19 years, 4 months, 8 days by @WWE Hall of Famer @RealJeffJarrett. Double J sets the new record in a match against @IAmEliasWWE tonight on #Raw.”
