WWE has reportedly released Jeff Hardy from his contract, according to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful. This comes less than a week after he was sent home following a "rough night" at a live occasion in Texas.
Fightful has actually found out WWE has actually released Jeff Hardy
The Charismatic Enigma teamed up with Drew McIntyre and King Woods to handle The Bloodline in a six-man tag team match, throughout which he vanished into the crowd and did not return post-match. Matt Hardy did reveal that Jeff is doing all right during a live stream.
Sapp also reported that WWE offered Jeff Hardy aid and rehab, most likely for the issues he had throughout the live occasion last weekend. The three-time WWE World Champion did not accept the help which resulted in his release.
I've heard WWE offered Jeff Hardy help and rehab, and it was declined. Here's to hoping things get much better for him.
Although the reasoning is entirely different, Jeff Hardy is the most recent name to join WWE's multitude of released stars in 2021. Some of the greatest names include Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman and Keith Lee.
Jeff Hardy's WWE resurgence lasted 4 years
Jeff Hardy went back to WWE after eight years away at WrestleMania 33, alongside his brother Matt. The two won the RAW Tag Team Championship that night. The Charismatic Enigma would go on to win more gold in WWE over the next few years.
Hardy won the United States Championship in April 2018 and the Intercontinental Championship in August 2020. He was seemingly being primed for a Universal Title shot against Roman Reigns on SmackDown prior to being released.
