transmission problems

I have a 1994 jeep grand cherokee I had a new transmission put in but the person who put it in took the torque converter out of my old one and put it in the new one it had to rev up to 2000 rpm's before it would shift about a week later the jeep would only move when it was cold when it warmed up it wouldn't move in any gear could it be the torque converter?

Welcome to the forums!

Have you talked to the mechanic? His work should have come with some sort of warranty. This is a new or rebuilt transmission and not a used one, right?

I'd start with checking ATF level. And leaks.

Just a thought, and it may not be the cause of your problem, but IMHO not replacing the torque converter was a HUGE mistake if this was an experienced mechanic. That's kind of Auto Repair 101.
