Dutch Mantell believes Triple H was responsible for Jeff Jarrett being released from WWE

While Road Dogg has apologized to Jeff Jarrett, Dutch Mantell believes the story has more to it than meets the eye.

In a recent episode of Storytime with Dutch Mantell, the veteran stated his theory on what may have happened while speculating that Jarrett dislikes Triple H.

"I don't think they like each other very much... I think Triple H may have been the one to kinda sponsor the ousting of Jeff from WWE because Jeff was in charge of their live events. (...) But at the time Road Dogg, who is Triple H's buddy, he needed a job. So I think Jeff blames Triple H for going in... saying 'we need to put Road Dogg in Jeff's spot, we need to release Jeff.' That's what I said from the beginning because then Jeff got released, and Road Dogg moved right in. Coincidence, some might say?" (2:22 - 4:19)

Jeff Jarrett is also performing in-ring alongside his backstage duties in AEW. It remains to be seen what is next for him in the coming weeks.
