Jeff Jarrett Says Singles Match With Grado Was Never Discussed For AEW All In, Multi-Man Matches Were

Grado got his moment at AEW All In, appearing alongside Anthony Ogogo and Paul Wight to confront Jeff Jarrett, Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, & Karen Jarrett.

While doing promotion for AEW All In in the weeks leading up to the event, Jarrett smashed a guitar over Grado's head during an interview with TalkSPORT.

Many fans thought the spot was leading to a bout between Jarrett and Grado at AEW All In, but Jarrett confirmed on his My World podcast that plans were never made for them to wrestle.

"The promotional stunt that took place, there was no master plan of where this was going to go or where that was going to. I have to give Tom Campbell of Cultaholic, he got word that Jarrett-Grado....I can assure listeners this, a Jarrett-Grado singles match, I don't believe was ever discussed. He is not on the AEW roster. He may have been in the corner, maybe a six-man, at one time there was an eight-man, at one time there was a ten-man discussion, all kinds of different things. At the end of the day, a lot of chatter that went on with it. Ol' Tom led the charge, and he went heavy with it. The amount of social media buzz that took place the seven days beforehand, my gosh. When Grado's video wall popped up, what a roar. It was a big pop. Great moment," said Jarrett.

Fightful Select reported that Wight (as Captain Insano) & The Hardys (Matt Hardy & Jeff Hardy) vs. Jarrett, Lethal, and Singh was discussed for the event.

Grado recently stated that he found out about his AEW All In appearance on Thursday. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
