Wrestling fans were shocked this morning as news broke that WWE has released Jeff Hardy. After reports that Hardy walked out in the middle of recent house show match, his brother Matt said Jeff was doing just fine. Today’s sudden news has sent shockwaves through wrestling circles.

The Charismatic Enigma has had a troubled history in the professional wrestling business. His infamous TNA Victory Road match with Sting where he showed up in no condition to wrestle in main event world title match may stand out as the low point of his career. This past week, Hardy was sent home from the tour after leaving through the crowd in the middle of a tag match with Xavier Woods and Drew McIntyre against The Bloodline in Edinburg, Texas. Now, stunned fans have begun worldwide speculation about what could’ve gone wrong.

Jeff Hardy has recently done a lot of interviews where he discussed his role as a locker room leader in the company. Obviously, that was just a smoke screen. The exact nature of his WWE release is currently a mystery, but that hasn’t stopped speculation from getting way out of control.

#JeffHardy became a trending topic on Twitter as the wrestling world discussed the release. Some fans expressed absolute surprise. Others weren’t taken aback in the least.


“This is sad. Lots of support for Jeff out there”

“Well, atleast he won’t be chasing for the 24/7 title”



“Its almost like X-Pac complaining to management that Michael Hayes encouraging a 22 year old Jeff Hardy to do stupid stunts to the point his body was a mess by age 25 wasnt just him “being a problem.” WWE has always had a lot to answer for on the Jeff Hardy front.”

Jeff Hardy is one of the most accomplished professional wrestlers of his era. A career that began as enhancement talent with WWE as a seventeen-year-old led to multiple world championships across various organizations. He’s considered by many to be one of the most influential and groundbreaking athletes ever to set foot in the squared circle.
