As it was reported earlier, Jeff Hardy was released by WWE. It appears that the company had no choice but to let him go after he reportedly refused to go to rehab.
Sean Ross Sapp reported, “I’ve heard WWE offered Jeff Hardy help and rehab, and it was not accepted. Here’s to hoping things get better for him.”
Hardy has dealt with similar issues in the past and the most prominent example was when he wrestled for TNA Wrestling. At Victory Road 2011, Hardy showed up for his match with Sting in no condition to perform and Eric Bischoff had to call an audible to have Sting end the match early.
Hardy has since said in interviews that he has cleaned up his life but has admitted that he’s in pain when he wrestles and he can no longer do some of the high-risk moves he did when he was younger. Hardy has been about his dirt bike accident from 2015 being the source of a lot of his pain issues. Hardy has been wrestling a regular live event schedule since WWE returned to the road a few months ago.
We wish him well on his latest personal issues.
