The rumor mill recently indicated that Jeff Jarrett was pitching ideas for former NBA star and nWo member Dennis Rodman to appear at the AEW All Out pay-per-view tomorrow night (Sept. 3) in Chicago’s United Center. And what do you know, that’s exactly what’s happening.
The Worm appeared on tonight’s (Sept. 2) episode of Collision and was immediately interrupted by Jarrett and his cronies. Jarrett recalled their shared history in the nWo before inviting Rodman to join his family.
Jarrett didn’t exactly approach Dennis in the most respectful manner, so he didn’t get the answer he was looking for. Rodman sent Sonjay Dutt flying, and it looked like the NBA legend was about to face a 4-on-1 beatdown.
That is, until The Acclaimed and Daddy Ass made the save. They challenged Jarrett’s crew to fight them tomorrow at All Out in a trios title match, with Dennis Rodman in the corner of the champs. The match was later made official for the Zero Hour pre-show, so Rodman will indeed be at All Out.
