Details Behind Jeff Hardy’s Shock Return To TNA Revealed

Jeff Hardy

Jeff Hardy has returned to TNA for the first time in seven years and now more details have come to light about his agreement with the promotion.

On June 13th it was reported that Jeff Hardy would be leaving AEW when his contract expires on the 14th. Hardy has been with AEW since March 2022, but his time with the company was badly affected by injury and a suspension and spell in rehab after being caught driving under the influence.

Hardy’s brother Matt left the company back in April and has since been working with TNA. At Against All Odds on the 14th of June, Matt Hardy faced Moose in the main event for the TNA World Title and despite the fact Hardy came up short in that pursuit he might have gained something more valuable after all.

After Moose picked up the win, The System continued their attack on Matt Hardy and his wife Reby. Joe Hendry attempted to make the save after losing to Frankie Kazarian earlier in the night but he was swarmed by the group as well.

Then to the delight of the fans in attendance, some very familiar music hit and Jeff Hardy made his return to TNA, taking out The System with a steel chair and Twists of Fate before hitting Moose with a huge Swanton Bomb. The reunited Hardys celebrated in the ring alongside Joe Hendry, and the Nemeth brothers as the show went off the air.

Jeff Hardy Remains A Free Agent Despite TNA Return

Now Fightful Select has given more insight into Hardy’s return to TNA where he has had two previous spells. It was noted that plans started for Hardy’s return before his AEW deal officially ended but that he and Matt remain free agents for the time being.

Matt Hardy’s own situation with TNA was described as being short term but plans and dates had already been added. In addition, there have also been pitches for Reby Hardy to get back in the ring and compete in a bout for the first time since 2016.

As far as AEW goes, the door “seems to remain open” for the company to work with The Hardys in the future but it is not believed that talks between the two sides are ongoing.
