WWE have reportedly released Jeff Hardy. According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Hardy was reportedly offered help and rehab, but the assistance was not accepted. Hardy was scheduled to team with McIntyre to face Happy Baron Corbin and Madcap Moss on this week’s SmackDown.
Hardy’s release comes after he was sent home from the road last weekend. He tagged out of a 6-man main event at Saturday’s WWE live event, after appearing more lethargic as the match went on. Hardy immediately disappeared through the crowd as security followed him. He never returned and did not appear for the post-match celebration with Drew McIntyre and King Xavier Woods after the win over The Bloodline. Hardy missed Sunday’s live event and was replaced by Rey Mysterio. It was reported then that he had been sent home.
Jeff Hardy is so beloved by his fans and his peers. I’ve never heard a negative word about him & he’s always treated me with such kindness. Just wishing him and his family the very best.
