Drew McIntyre On Jeff Hardy Incident: The Internet Can Take Something And Blow It Out Of Proportion

Drew McIntyre just wants what is best for Jeff Hardy.

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, December 4 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.

Speaking to Steven Muehlhausen of DAZN, McIntyre was asked about the incident.

"For one, as usual, the internet can take something and blow out of proportion. But all I'll say on the matter is I just want what's best for Jeff and for him to be healthy. As long as he's good, as long as he's healthy, as long as he's happy with his family, then Drew McIntyre is happy," he said.

Hardy ended up being released by WWE on December 9.

Jeff appeared in a vignette alongside Matt on Twitch following his release and Matt commented on his release, saying he believes WWE jumped the gun. You can find Matt's full comments by clicking here.
