Dutt also had a guest gig working as a producer/agent on the NXT live events that week, according to a report by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
The Observer also reported that Dutt has received recent interest from both Ring Of Honor and TNA. According to the report, ROH approached Dutt about possibly replacing Steve Corino on commentary, Meanwhile, Jarrett approached Dutt about joining the creative team in TNA as that promotion continues its revamp.
Dutt was a regular part of the TNA roster for more than five years before his contract expired in early 2009. He returned to the promotion in 2012 for a series of semi-regular appearances that lasted through 2013, making a one-night return in July of 2015 where he unsuccessfully challenged Tigre Uno for the X Division Title. Dutt also has appeared for ROH, PWG, CHIKARA, and a variety of other independent promotions. Dutt also worked with Jarrett under the Global Force Wrestling banner.
ROH, meanwhile, still is seeking a full-time replacement for Corino as color commentator. The promotion is revamping its commentary team with the departures of both Corino and play-by-play man Kevin Kelly. Ian Riccaboni replaced Kelly as the new ROH lead broadcaster at the latest set of ROH TV tapings.
