Jeff Jarrett struts into the Royal Rumble for a duet with Elias

The women’s Royal Rumble match was short on surprise entrants this year, but the men’s version kicked things off with a Hall of Famer (of the TNA and WWE varieties). He entered at #2, and meshed well with the #1 entrant.

They teased a Double J & Elias duet, but the Drifter was tired of being interrupted, and tired of being compared to Jeff Jarrett, and maybe tired of being a babyface (he made fun of the Arizona Diamondbacks’ attendance before smashing his guitar over Jarrett’s back and eliminating him).

We didn’t get to hear “With My Baby Tonight”, but you can follow along with all the Royal Rumble action here.
