Jeff Hardy sustained a broken nose due to a move gone wrong on the February 16th episode tapings of AEW Rampage. In his No-DQ matchup against Sammy Guevara, Hardy was knocked out when Guevara’s knee collided with his face after a shooting star press maneuver. Now, Matt Hardy has provided an update on Jeff’s injury.

During the latest episode of the “Extreme Life of Matt Hardy” podcast, Matt Hardy discussed the injury sustained by his brother Jeff Hardy during his match with Sammy Guevara. Matt revealed that the incident occurred during the tapings on Wednesday night and that the match would air tonight on TNT.

“It looks like the Sammy Guevara – Hardy curse is real and it lives on. We thought it ended in 2020, but it picked right back up in February 2024,”

“They were having a hell of a match. It’s going to air on Rampage tonight. There’s a point where Sammy does a move and his knee catches Jeff in the face. It definitely rocked Jeff and Jeff for sure has a broken nose. That’s all we really know. They’re still going to have him undergo some more testing to find out what his total injury is or would be, but right now, at a minimum, it’s a broken nose.


We traveled together. We were on the same flight and we flew home. He was in great spirits. It’s funny because he’s never broken his nose before, which is insane to think about. Most pro wrestlers, breaking your nose is a pretty standard thing. It happens at some point, especially if you’ve wrestled for three decades like we have. I felt so bad for him because he had a nice nose and now it’s all crooked and jimmied like mine is now. So welcome to the broken nose club, brother.”

Jeff’s recent injury marks a continuation of what Matt referred to as the “Sammy Guevara – Hardy curse,” recalling a similar incident from 2020. While the extent of Jeff’s injury is unclear, Matt shared that further testing was planned to “find out what his total injury is or would be.”

Despite the setback, Matt took the incident lightly and welcomed his brother into the “broken nose club.” Additionally, the broadcast for tonight’s episode will commence at an earlier time of 7pm EST/4pm PST, deviating from its usual time slot of 10pm EST/7pm PST.

Do you think Jeff’s recent injury would impact his career in wrestling? How long do you think he’ll be out on the sidelines? Let us know in the comments!
