WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett made his surprise All Elite Wrestling debut on Dynamite Wednesday (November 2) night.
Jarrett attacked Darby Allin with a guitar to realign himself with Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt, who had previously wrestled for IMPACT Wrestling, a company initially founded by the third-generation wrestler, as well as the duo's muscle, former Indian basketball Satnam Singh.
Jarrett, 55, then cut a promo promising to leave an impact on AEW.
"I can assure you, before I get done with this place, there's gonna be full bodybags," Jarrett said.
The Hendersonville, Tennessee native has appeared in events for several wrestling promotions this year, which included serving as the special guest referee for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship match between the Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) and the Street Profits (Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins) at SummerSlam in July while working in a backstage role for the company before being released the following month.

Jarrett also teamed alongside Lethal in Ric Flair's 'Last Match' the following day, with Flair teaming with his son-in-law, Andrade El Idolo.
Jarrett made his pro wrestling debut as a referee in 1986 for Continental Wrestling Association, a company operated by his father, Jerry Jarrett.
Jarrett's AEW debut was his first appearance on a TBS wrestling program in 21 years, having appeared on the final episode of WCW Thunder on March 21, 2001.
