Jeff Jarrett Discusses AEW Continental Classic
In a recent episode of “My World with Jeff Jarrett,” the wrestling veteran tackled the criticisms surrounding All Elite Wrestling’s (AEW) Continental Classic. Jarrett found the notion of confusion among fans regarding the tournament’s format questionable, suggesting that the structure should be transparent to those following the event.
Tournament Format and Storytelling
Jarrett emphasized that the point system and progression within the tournament are straightforward, with clean pinfalls playing a significant role in driving the narrative forward. “I think it is a six-seven-week story that involves 12 guys,” stated Jarrett, pointing out the meticulous design behind the event.
AEW’s Iteration of Classic Tournament Style
Traditionally, wrestling tournaments akin to Japan’s G1 Climax have employed a distinctive approach. AEW’s Continental Classic brings its own flavor to this format, which Jarrett believes has been effectively introduced to AEW’s audience.
