As previously noted, Jeff Hardy is injured and may need shoulder surgery. Dave Meltzer reported that the injury occurred during the tag team Iron Man match at the Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view in July that featured The Hardys against Sheamus and Cesaro. It’s the same match where Matt was busted open and needed to get stitched up after the show.
Hardy had not been booked to wrestle as of late but was booked for the show in Sacramento on Friday night. He was supposed to team with his brother to take on Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson but that was changed to a singles match between Matt Hardy and Karl Anderson.
It’s not clear yet if he will get surgery but if he does then that would mean that he would be out of action for several months. This injury kind of slipped under the radar because, as you can see in the tweet below, Jeff’s wife Beth noted on Wednesday that her husband was injured.
Ruby’s sick again ? Husband is injured ? Alli isn’t 100% ?Lucas is blind ? And my house needs to be cleaned. I need a clone.
