Jeff Hardy Released from WWE Following House Show Incident
Jeff Hardy has been released from WWE following an incident at a house show on Saturday, December 4
Hardy’s release was reported by Fightful who noted, “Hardy was reportedly sent home from the road and was absent from WWE’s live event on Sunday, December 5, which took place in Corpus Christi, Texas. Hardy teamed with Drew McIntyre & King Xavier Woods on Saturday at a WWE live event and after making a tag to McIntyre, he disappeared from ringside. Hardy was reportedly sluggish as the match went on. He was replaced by Rey Mysterio in the six-man tag team bout against The Bloodline (Roman Reigns & The Usos) on Sunday.”
Following this incident, there were many that speculated whether Hardy had some sort of relapse in his sobriety, which has been an on-going issue in his career for decades.
Fightful also reported, “WWE reportedly offered Jeff Hardy help and rehab, and it was not accepted.”
Hardy’s latest stint with WWE began in April 2017 when he and brother Matt Hardy made a surprise appearance at WrestleMania 33 as part of the Raw Tag Team Championship ladder match, which the Hardys would go on to win. Matt Hardy has since joined rival promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW) in March 2020.
