WWE has released Jeff Hardy.
Fightful has learned that Jeff Hardy has been released by WWE.
WWE reportedly offered Jeff Hardy help and rehab, and it was not accepted.
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.
Matt Hardy recently stated that he spoke with Jeff on Monday and that Jeff was at home and doing okay. You can find Matt's comments by clicking here.
Hardy last wrestled on television on the November 26 episode of WWE SmackDown, teaming with Drew McIntyre to defeat Madcap Moss & Happy Corbin.
The Hardy Boyz returned to WWE at WrestleMania 33, winning the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships. Matt left WWE once his contract expired in March 2020. Hardy re-signed with the company on a two-year deal in September 2020.
Hardy is a former WWE Champion, Intercontinental Champion, and Tag Team Champion, almond other accolades. He has also had many legal troubles over the years, most recently being charged with driving while impaired in October 2019.
Beth Hardy, Jeff's wife posted this tweet following the news of Jeff's release.
Jeff is good.— Beth Hardy (@BethBrittHardy_) December 9, 2021
We are good.
Post that you “heard” that.
Matt Hardy opened up about Jeff's condition, saying Jeff's gonna be okay while streaming on Twitch.
"I'll talk about the elephant in the room, right. People have been asking my brother, about Jeff, I have spoken to him several times today and he's good and he's gonna be okay. You guys, just keep him in your thoughts. I think he's fine, everything's gonna work out. All's good."
Jeff has since been moved to WWE's alumni section on their roster page.
Fightful will have more information on Hardy's release if it is known.
