When reviewing Jeff's work alongside Renee Paquette and RJ City on The Buy-In ahead of AEW Double or Nothing 2024, Tony Schiavone said, on the most recent episode of his What Happen When podcast, that he was blown away versatility possessed by "The King of the Mountain"

"I guess I shouldn't have been but I was kind of blown away [by] how versatile Jeff Jarrett is. That fucker can do it all. I mean, he literally can do it all. I sent him a note. I said, 'Dude, for an old fucker, you can certainly do everything.' I was just blown away by it," said Schiavone. "Maybe I shouldn't have been. I thought his work on the pregame show — Of course, to me, I love RJ City. Some people do, some people don't. I just think he's a very talented very positive guy and works pretty hard behind the scenes as well."

Schiavone who's worked with legendary names such as Gordon Solie, Mike Tenay, Bobby Heenan, and Jim Ross also offered strong praise for Renee Paquette, calling her the 'single most talented person' he's ever worked with in terms of on-camera broadcasting.

"Renee [Paquette] has to be the single most talented person I think I've ever worked with as far as on-camera work. Everything is so natural to her and she's so good at what she does," Tony added. "When they threw Jeff Jarrett in and Jeff was just — I just thought he did a masterful job. I even let him know that. I said, 'For an old fucker, you can just about do anything in wrestling.' Wrestle, talk, like you said, everything. Hell, he could probably run a camera, too, if need be."

High praise for three of the most versatile performers in all of AEW from a veteran of wearing multiple hats in the industry.
