According to Fightful.com, the World Wrestling Entertainment has released veteran superstar Jeff Hardy on Thursday. WWE has yet to confirm the news.
Hardy may have a 90-day non-compete clause with his release. Once that expires, he could potentially join his brother Matt in All Elite Wrestling.
This past weekend, he was competing in a house event. He partnered with Drew McIntyre and King Xavier Woods.
During the match, Hardy leaves his teammates as he went through the crowd. A WWE official then follows him through the ring.
McIntyre and Woods would win the match. However, Hardy would not return to celebrate with his teammates in the match.
On Sunday, he did not show up for an appearance. WWE officials replaced him with veteran Rey Mysterio.
Frightful.com is reporting that WWE offered Hardy to go through rehab. However, he allegedly turned down that opportunity.
Hardy has had several DUI arrests. He has battled alcoholism for some time.
The 44-year-old was in his second stint with the company when he was released. He will have suitors, as he could join AEW with Matt, or he could potentially return to Impact Wrestling.
He has signed a two-year contract with the WWE in September 2020. His brother Matt joined AEW once his contract expired from WWE in 2020.
The Hardy Boys are one of the most successful tag teams in the history of wrestling.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
