One of the most captivating matchups in a very long time occurred on last night’s AEW Dynamite. The contestants in the event were Jeff Hardy and Jeff Jarrett.
There were several shenanigans as well as external meddling during the Texas Chainsaw Massacre Deathmatch between Jeff Jarrett and Jeff Hardy. There would be interruptions, with Isiah Kassidy, Karen Jarrett, Matt Hardy, and Jay Lethal among those to support their respective friends.
Jeff Jarrett defeated Jeff Hardy in the eagerly awaited Texas Chainsaw Massacre match that took place on the most recent episode of AEW Dynamite. But surprisingly, the recognizable Leatherface figure from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series showed up in the middle of the game.
Numerous rumors circulated over the identity of the person wearing the mask, with some fans hysterically speculating that it was Jey Uso. However, this was untrue. We’re going to talk about the enigmatic man hiding behind the leather face mask in this blog.
Who Portrayed The Leatherface?
According to Fightful Select, Dean Alexander was the mastermind of Leatherface on Wednesday night’s Deathmatch fight in Nashville, Tennessee. Dean, who is mostly a developing talent, competed frequently on AEW Dark following his debut in 2021.
In March 2021, Alexander initially started working for AEW at AEW Dark Tapings. Since then, he has put forth a lot of effort to get the promotion.
Alexander had made several appearances on Dark and Dark: Elevation in addition to a number of standalone dates, but, as he had never been on Dynamite before, the wrestler’s performance as Leatherface was officially his company’s television debut.
As previously mentioned, AEW used the Texas Chainsaw Massacre Death Match as a promotional tool for the brand-new video game of the same name. The marketing netted the firm $100,000 in sponsorship funds, all of which were donated to the Maui Food Banks in support of those affected by the Maui fires.
What Actually Happened That Night?
During the Death Match between Jeff Jarrett and Jeff Hardy, Alexander was competing while disguised as Leatherface. The battle served as a marketing tool for the upcoming video game “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.“
Jeff Hardy was shocked by Alexander Dean’s ominous entrance, which gave Satnam Singh the opportunity to take advantage and submit Hardy with a chokeslam.
As a result, Double J won the first-ever Texas Chainsaw Massacre Deathmatch in AEW in a contentious manner. Jeff Jarrett had to recover from an emotionally and physically demanding match before he could chat backstage.
Despite what had transpired during the contest, he thanked Satnam Singh for being the main reason he had won.
The legendary chainsaw-wielding lunatic would descend the entry ramp towards the conclusion of the game with Karren Jarrett in mind, and the sound of a chainsaw would be audible through the loudspeakers. As the fight went on, Jeff Jarrett was chased away by Leatherface to the rear, where he finally prevailed.
