Jeff Hardy is universally beloved, being a proper veteran in the pro wrestling world. However, his personal demons have cost him a great deal. That said, Hardy finally returned on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. Now it appears that AEW was blasted for messing up Hardy’s return.

Jeff Hardy was arrested on June 13 last year in Volusia County, Florida and charged with DUI, driving with a suspended license and violating restrictions placed on a driver’s license. Fans were concerned for Jeff Hardy’s wellbeing throughout his long hiatus.

After 10 months away from AEW television, Jeff Hardy finally returned on Dynamite last week. He came back and saved his brother Matt Hardy by taking out members of The Firm, making fans in attendance jump in delight.

While speaking on The Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette talked about Jeff Hardy’s return. Cornette blasted AEW for reuniting The Hardy Boys, which he believes ruined Jeff Hardy’s return.


Jeff Hardy’s music plays, and instantly the place blows. They go crazy, they hit their feet, they’re standing up, and he hits the ring. And it doesn’t look necessarily pretty, and they don’t care. He beats up the heels, he hits a Swanton, and he hugs Matt Hardy, and the place is going berserk. And I can’t believe that not only has Tony f**k this up again but in exactly the same way as he f**ked it up the first time.

He has reunited the Hardys against people that nobody gives two dog sh*ts about. And, to be honest, I don’t even think they particularly cared or were caring that he reunited the Hardys. I think they were happy Jeff Hardy was back, and he could have hugged Matt, or he could have hugged Bozo the Clown or Randy Atcher. It wouldn’t have made any difference.”

Jeff Hardy’s return was also organized in just few days. We will have to wait and see how AEW will be booking Jeff Hardy in the coming weeks, now that he is back for good.
