As previously reported, WWE confirmed that Jeff Hardy has suffered a torn rotator cuff and will undergo surgery next Tuesday to repair it.
Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that the injury actually occurred back in July at the WWE Great Balls of Fire event and has been working hurt ever since. The belief is that Jeff Hardy may not wrestle again until after next year’s WrestleMania 34 event.
It’s also worth noting that Jeff is has an pre-existing knee injury as well. Both Erick Rowan and Shelton Benjamin both recently had surgery for a torn rotator cuff and were out of action for seven months. With Hardy undergoing surgery early October, that would put his return around May of 2018, which is after WrestleMania 34.
We should have a better timeline on his return date when he visits the doctors next Tuesday.
