Jeff Jarrett will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his old roadie.
When Road Dogg was brought into WWE, he was called "The Roadie" and accompanied Jeff Jarrett to the ring. That was during Jarrett's first stint in WWE. Road Dogg would leave at the same time as Jarrett but returned later to join Degeneration X.
WWE made the announcement via Twitter and WWE.com.
WWE.com featured the following statement about Road Dogg inducting Jarrett.
Road Dogg was at ringside for some of Jeff Jarrett’s biggest triumphs inside the squared circle, so it’s only right that he be the person to induct Double J into the WWE Hall of Fame during the 2018 Induction Ceremony on Friday, April 6, during WrestleMania 34 Week
Road Dogg arrived in WWE in 1994, then known as The Roadie, acting as Jarrett’s gofer as he tried to use WWE to springboard to country music superstardom. In addition to taking care of Double J’s musical endeavors, Road Dogg wasn’t afraid to meddle in Jarrett’s affairs in the ring, either. That led to the beginning of Road Dogg’s in-ring career with WWE, which saw him go on to become a six-time tag team champion and an Intercontinental Champion.
Of course, there’s also musical controversy between the two, as it was also revealed that Road Dogg provided the vocals for Jarrett’s debut single, “With My Baby Tonight.”
What will Road Dogg say when he introduces the six-time Intercontinental Champion and four-time WCW Champion for enshrinement into the WWE Hall of Fame? Find out during the 2018 Induction Ceremony, streaming live on WWE Network Friday, April 6, at 8 ET/5 PT!
After the two split up as a team, they had many matches against each other in both singles and tag team in WWE and Impact Wrestling. When Jarrett was announced for the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame Class, Road Dogg went on record saying Jarrett helped him a lot in his early years of professional wrestling.
The WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony is April 6th which is two days before Wrestlemania 34.
