Jeff Hardy has been released from the WWE.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful announced the news on Thursday.
PWInsider originally reported on Hardy being sent home after a live event on Saturday in Edinburg, Texas. During a match with The Bloodlines, he teamed with Drew McIntyre and Xavier Woods. Hardy can be seen in fan footage rolling out of the ring and exiting through the crowd. Rey Mysterio replaced him the following night.
A consummate fan favorite, Hardy has had numerous challenges in his personal life dating back to 2009. Throughout his career, he’s been arrested several times, twice in 2019. During that time, WWE turned that situation into an on-air feud with Sheamus. According to Sean Ross Sapp the WWE offered Hardy help and rehab, but the assistance was not accepted.
Hardy was recently moved to the SmackDown brand during the recent edition of the WWE Draft. He is a multiple-time champion with title reigns across some of the largest organizations in wrestling, including Ring of Honor, TNA, MCW, and the WWE. He and his brother Matt are considered one of the best tag teams in professional wrestling.
We at Daily DDT wish Hardy a speedy and healthy recovery.
