Jeff Hardy admits only he’s to blame for the “hell of a mess” that kept him and Matt Hardy from winning the AEW World Tag Team Championship.

In March of 2022, Jeff Hardy made his AEW debut, reuniting with his brother Matt. The brothers seemed set for tag team gold, but in June of 2022, Jeff was arrested and charged with driving under the influence as well as driving without a license.

Jeff Hardy’s court case was closed in February, and the following sentence was handed down:

  • A 38-day county jail sentence with 38 days credit for time served
  • Two years probation
  • $4586 in fines and court fees
  • A 10-year suspension of his driver’s license
  • Two years with an interlock device and 90-day vehicle impoundment
  • Court-mandated DUI school or drug rehab program
  • Community service

The star made his return to Dynamite on April 12th, once again assisting his brother Matt as they fought off members of The Firm.

“It’s Within Reach” – Jeff Hardy On Wanting To Win The AEW World Tag Team Championship With Matt Hardy

Speaking in a new interview with MuscleManMalcolm, Jeff Hardy took responsibility for derailing the championship aspirations of himself and his brother and spoke about working his way back to prominence on AEW Dynamite.

“It’s a constant battle for me to elevate myself back to the Dynamite show. Hopefully, eventually. [Rampage] is kind of the B Show, but you just go out there and give the people what they want and get their money’s worth. Naturally, the ultimate goal is for myself and Matt is the AEW World Tag Team Championships. We were so close before I got myself in a hell of a mess that I got myself into, but now that I’m coming out of that, it’s within reach. We’re using the Rampage moments to hopefully, eventually, create huge Dynamite moments.”
