For one reason or another, matches between The Usos and The Street Profits just can’t get a clean ending in the WWE Universe. At Money in the Bank, Jimmy and Jay secured the W despite failing to keep both of Montez Ford’s shoulders on the mat, and a few weeks later in Orlando, the Profits returned the favor, with Dawkins getting the win despite an Uso arm being off of the mat.
Needless to say, something had to be done to get this right and deliver onto fans a final, definitive ending, but what would it be?
Adam Pierce’s solution? Add a special referee who will do a better job than the zebras he already employs.
But who would it be? Was it going to be Sammi Zayn or another performer associated with The Bloodline, or maybe someone with a connection to the Profits like, say, Bianca Belair?
How about… Jeff Jarrett?

Yes, Double J himself, the founder of TNA who most recently wrestled in GCW versus Effy and Allie Katch, will take the ring and attempt to call the match down the middle, with the fate of the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Championships on the line. He’ll check shoulders, keep an eye on the ropes, and hopefully show enough mobility to get around the ring and shut things down if any funny business is going down from an outside force.
… oh yeah, and Jarrett will probably hit someone over the head with a guitar for good measure, too, as at 55, it’s not like that old dog is going to change his spots.
