'''Jeffrey Leonard "Jeff" Jarrett''' (1967-) is a rather divisive [[ProfessionalWrestling pro wrestler]], active in Wrestling/{{WCW}} and [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} WWF]], and the co-founder of both Wrestling/{{TNA}} and Global Force Wrestling, he's a career {{heel}} known for his smarmy, cowardly nature.

Oh, and he's an Eleven Time World Champion. ThatOtherWiki has a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Jarrett page]] documenting his career and life. He has served as a pro wrestler since 1986.

!!'''Tropes found in J-E-Double-F J-A-Double-R-E-Double T's life and career:'''
* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: Wrestling/TripleH to the point that detractors of both refer to Jeff as "Triple J" (for Jackass Jeff Jarrett.)
* ArchEnemy: Well, Wrestling/KurtAngle and him really, really don't like each other. [[CaptainObvious Miiiiiiight have something to do with the fact that Angle's wife left him for Jarrett.]]
* AuthorityInNameOnly: As the "King Of Mexico" after winning the AAA Heavyweight belt.
* {{Badass}}: Like it or not, Jeff Jarret has found success in every wrestling organization he has been a part of.
** BadassMustache: And it usually is not dyed like the rest of his hair either
** HeartbrokenBadass: His [[HighSchoolSweethearts high school girlfriend]] turned wife died of cancer after being married for a long time.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: While a goofy, silly heel most of the time, he's brought it to Kurt Angle, Wrestling/RicFlair, Wrestling/ShawnMichaels, Wrestling/AJStyles, Wrestling/BookerT, Wrestling/ScottSteiner and many other top wrestlers.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Has been a heel pretty consistently since he debuted in WWE in 1994.
* CatchPhrase
** Loves to call opponents "slap nuts." No idea why.
** "Ain't I great?" and "That's J, E, double F, J, A, double R, E , double T... I'm double J, Jeff Jarrett!" during his first WWF run.
** After he had his head shaved by [[Wrestling/SeanWaltman X-Pac]], he adapted "DON'T PISS ME OFF!" as his new catchphrase.
* CombatPragmatist: Is very adept at cheating, of course, he does have a quarter century of wrestling experience.
* CoolOldGuy: 46 and busting out Ranas and Missile Dropkicks.
* DeadpanSnarker: Oh, he's had his moments. He once walked into the ring with fans chanting "DROP THE TITLE!", and he proceeded to literally do just that.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: Lampshaded. He hit a backdrop suplex on Scott Steiner on the June 19, 2000 ''Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro'' and ''said'', "I just suplexed Scott Steiner!"
* DidntTHINKThisThrough: So at the 2009 Slammiversery, Jeff Jarret states he has no desire to win the Wrestling/{{TNA}} World Heavyweight Championship and just wants Wrestling/MickFoley to lose the belt in the night's King Of The Mountain match. So what does Jarret do? Ruin other AJ Style's chances to win the belt even though Mick Foley was in no position to stop them and would have lost if AJ won. Jeff himself had no desire to win so why bother?
* DirtyCoward: Through his heel runs, such as sending Tony Falk to try and convince Wrestling/BigVanVader to go after someone else in USAW. Though in TNA he was uncharacteristically valiant, willingly standing up to Kevin Nash when it was clear he was not going to listen to reason.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: He actually ''had'' been a popular, hardworking {{Face}} in the USWA in Dallas around 1989-1990, and bore zero resemblance to the character he's been since 1994.
* EvilIsPetty: In 2008 he could have just fired Kurt Angle but Jeff Jarret decided to keep him around, hurt Angle and make him look bad to make sure Vince [=McMahon=] would not hire him back.
* FinishingMove: The stroke, AKA "Jeff Jarret face buster"
* GlassJawReferee: Despite being a wrestler, Jeff was about as fragile as any referee when he wore the stripes. This included his returns to refereeing even after he had an ''[[Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance NWA World Heavyweight Championship]] run'' to his name!
* InstrumentOfMurder: He inherited the Wrestling/HonkyTonkMan's signature cheating style of cracking a guitar over the heads of his opponents.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Jarrett is apparently a loving father of five, including step-children by Karen.
* MilesGloriosus
** During his 2010-2011 feuds with Wrestling/SamoaJoe and Kurt Angle, Jarrett started to hype himself up as a prolific MMA fighter and held MMA "training" sessions in the ring where he'd basically use simple MMA holds to torture whatever poor sap was dumb enough to become his lackey. Any real competition from men like Joe or Kurt and Jeff was doing everything possible to worm his way out.
** Jarrett [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6S2ysN5izk took over a local kids karate school]] where he left all the kids laying while talking trash to Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe.
* NiceHat: Wore a rather flashy one in USAW and during his first run in the then-WWF.
* PetTheDog: Despite Jeff Jarret's many, many faults, he really did care about Tony Falk in USAW
* PowerStable:
** (in his first WCW run 1996-1997): The Four Horsemen
** (in his second WWE run): Wrestling/JimCornette's NWA group.
** (in his second WCW run): Wrestling/VinceRusso's the Powers That Be, the final version of the [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder NWO]], the New Blood (led by Russo and Wrestling/EricBischoff with Jarrett as the Centerpiece before the group fell apart), Ric Flair's The Magnificent Seven
** (in TNA): Planet Jarrett, the Kings of Wrestling (with Wrestling/KevinNash and Wrestling/ScottHall), the TNA Front Line, Immortal
** (in Wrestling/{{AAA}}): La Legion Extranjera (led by Wrestling/{{Konnan}} with LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters) and La Sociedad (also with LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters)
* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** His going from TNA's top heel, suddenly vanishing from TV for over a year, and HeelFaceTurn upon his return was due to the death of his first wife Jill.
** His feud with Kurt Angle concerning Karen.
* RealSongThemeTune: (in the USWA in Dallas): Robert [=Palmer=]'s "Simply Irresistible"
* RedBaron: Simply Irresistible (in the USWA in Dallas), Double J, the Chosen One (in [=WCW=]), Big Daddy, the [=TNA=] Founder, the King of the Mountain.
* SickeninglySweethearts: With his (actual) wife, Karen Jarrett (nee Smedley, and later Angle).
** RomanceOnTheSet: Jeff married Karen in 2010.
* SmugSnake: He's a very old school, cowardly sneaky heel.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Adding to his sliminess, Jarrett will brag like all hell.
* {{Unperson}}: He is one of the few wrestlers who's currently been Unpersoned in the WWF/E. The story behind it goes like this: Jeff's contract was set to expire a day ''before'' the pay-per-view on which he was booked to lose the Intercontinental Title to Wrestling/{{Chyna}}. Under no obligation to work the show and feeling that losing to Chyna would make him look bad, Jeff gave Vince an ultimatum: either he would get paid more money for doing the job, or he would leave the company without dropping the title. [=McMahon=] paid him what he asked, but has held a grudge against Jarrett for it ever since. His father, Jerry Jarrett, is a different story; he has a strong relationship with the [=McMahons=], and he [[http://wrestlingaudio.com/ultrapw/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=12648:jeff-jarrett-recalls-his-father-being-poised-to-take-over-wwe-if-vince-mcmahon-had-been-convicted&catid=40:tna&Itemid=59 revealed in a 2010 interview]] that Vince [=McMahon=] gave his condolences to him after his wife died.
* WeaponOfChoice: The Guitar, he got really scared when he went to hit AJ Styles, who proceeded to kick it in half.
* WouldHitAGirl: Hit several with a guitar and hit Chyna with about everything that was not nailed down. Also beat the crap out of Alexis Laree during his feud with Raven's Gathering in TNA.
* WrestlingDoesntPay: A Wrestling Country Music Star.
* WrestlingFamily: Third generation wrestler.
* WriterOnBoard: In the early days of TNA, Jarrett hogged the NWA title like there was no tomorrow. Fans, annoyed that Jarrett was essentially abusing his power as owner of TNA, screamed "DROP THE TITLE" at him. Even Jim Cornette, who at the time had was all sunshine and roses about ''every other'' part of NWA-TNA said he and Jarret were going to butt heads over his constant title pushes. Since TNA defected from the NWA and built their own world championship, Jarrett's stayed away from the title scene.
* WrongGenreSavvy: From the September 6, 2000 ''WCW Thunder.'' He walked on to the set of Wrestling/MikeAwesome's [[TalkShowWithFists "Lava Lamp Lounge"]], and accused Awesome of being a mix of "Creator/JohnTravolta ''Film/{{Saturday Night|Fever}} [[Series/SaturdayNightLive Live]]'' and ''Film/AustinPowers.''
