Jeff Jarrett and Shane Helms Returning to WWE in Backstage Positions

jeff jarrett wwe signed signs backstage producer shane helms

WWE has hired two more backstage producers who have experience at Impact Wrestling — Jeff Jarrett and Shane Helms. 

1Wrestling first reported news of Jarrett’s signing, which we’ve since confirmed. PWInsider claims he’ll also be used in some sort of on-camera role. 

As you’ll recall, Jarrett became Chief Creative Officer at Impact Wrestling after Anthem took control of the company from Dixie Carter. Under his control, Impact saw the loss of talents like The Hardy Boyz, Drew McIntyre, Mia Yim and Mike Bennett — who all work in WWE now. 

Jarrett was terminated from his position as Chief Creative Officer at Impact Wrestling in October 2017. Days later, he entered rehab and has since been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. 

Helms reportedly joins Abyss and Sonjay Dutt as an additional backstage producer for now. However, their roles aren’t exactly defined at this point.
