Update On What AEW Has Planned For Jeff Hardy
Jeff Hardy returned on AEW Dynamite this week and there’s some new information about when he might wrestle again.
For the first time in nearly a year, Jeff Hardy was back on AEW Dynamite on April 12th. Jeff returned after his brother Matt, Hook and Isiah Kassidy were getting beaten up by Ethan Page, Big Bill, and Lee Moriarty.
When Jeff Hardy’s music hit, the fans in Milwaukee cheered wildly due to Jeff’s history of being one of the most popular wrestlers ever.
As Jeff got into the ring, he cleaned house by attacking Page, Bill and Moriarty. Jeff hit Moriarty with a Twist of Fate and Swanton Bomb followed by a big hug for brother Matt.
In an update on Jeff’s wrestling future, Fightful Select reports that Jeff still physically recovering from recent surgery, so there are plans in place for the next few weeks to have Jeff involved, but he won’t be wrestling.
Recently, Jeff’s brother Matt Hardy revealed that Jeff had eye surgery.
“Jeff just had some eye surgery. His eyes were just a little off-set, it’s just probably from wear and tear and beating his body up. They had to work on some ligaments and tendons in one of his eyes. So they corrected that [with] surgery and they said probably in five, six weeks, he should be okay.”
In watching the replay of Jeff Hardy on AEW Dynamite, you could tell his right eye had some redness to it.
The AEW Dynamite episode last night was the first time Jeff Hardy was on AEW TV since was arrested on June 13th, 2022 for driving without a license and being three times over the legal DUI limit.
In February, Jeff’s court case was closed after this sentence from Volusia County 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
While Matt and Jeff Hardy have won the Tag Team Championships in many wrestling promotions, they have yet to do so in AEW, so perhaps that will be their upcoming goal in the months ahead.
