Jeff Hardy is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world and no matter what, fans will always support him. However, Jeff Hardy’s longstanding battle with substance abuse has truly proven to be his downfall. Road Dogg also believes Hardy deserves a second chance after his most recent DUI arrest.
Hardy made headlines after he was arrested for driving under the influence after leaving a local Dave & Busters. It simply got worse for him after that as well. This was his third DUI arrest in a decade as well.
While speaking on the “Oh You Didn’t Know?” Podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Road Dogg talked about Jeff Hardy’s plight after his arrest. Dogg stated that he believes Hardy deserves a second chance.
“People believe in second chances. America was built on second chances, WWE was dang sure built on second chances, and the fact is that Jeff deserves one,” Road Dogg said. “He’s been living hard and it’s time to stop now. He has to be ready and willing to do whatever it takes to stop living that way.
I didn’t know living a different way was a possibility for me. I thought, and I say this all the time, I didn’t care which handful of pills killed me and I was wondering which one was going to do it and when. Living crazy like that, you don’t have to live like that ever again and it’s okay. I hope he realizes that now, but it’s not easy, it’s not easy to get off that vicious merry-go-round man. You’ve got to reach out and somebody’s got to pull you off kind of, that’s maybe where we’re at right now. Praying for him for sure, first and foremost. I can’t do anything for him but pray for him.”
Hardy has already entered alcohol treatment as well. Tony Khan also stated that Hardy is on his last chance in AEW. We hope, for his sake and everyone else around him, Hardy properly recovers.
