Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy made announcements on Twitch tonight, recapped on the Squared Circle Reddit.
Jeff Hardy will be playing like 5 concerts coming up.
Matt said his tweet about waiting for the facts was a general statement and not specifically about Jeff/WWE, but it does apply.
Matt said, if you’re worried about Jeff, “I’m here to tell you, he is good and there’s no reason to be worried or concerned about him.”
Matt said Jeff’s WWE-mandated rehab in 2019 was a very good experience for Jeff.
Matt said he feels good about the details of what happened on the night in question, but it’s Jeff’s story to tell. He said Jeff was drug tested afterward and he’s confident that all came back clean. (Didn’t say anything about alcohol, was very specific about drugs. I’m not implying anything. Just clarifying.)
Matt also understands WWE’s stance because of the history, though he thinks they may have jumped the gun. Jeff didn’t want to go to rehab because he didn’t feel he needed it.
Matt said WWE is a great company, but it can be a very challenging place to work at and you have to be mentally strong to work there.
Jeff Hardy was wrestling Roman Reigns and The Usos in his final WWE match. WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar are entailed in a heated feud and fans are extremely eager to witness their battle inside the squared circle. Following the announcement of the match between Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar for WWE Day 1 pay-per-view, the ticket sales has seemingly increased.
Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns is a highly-anticipated bout
As reported by the Observer (via Cageside Seats), ticket sales for WWE Day 1 improved a lot after WWE announced the match between ‘The Tribal Chief’ and ‘The Beast Incarnate’ in the main event of the show. However, it’s unlikely that the pay-per-view will sell out completely:
In the Daily Update, it’s noted by the Observer that tickets for Day 1 started moving much faster after the announcement of Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar but it’s still unlikely to sell out.
WWE Day 1 is the newest pay-per-view on the company’s calendar which is set to take place on January 1, 2022. The other matches announced so far are Big E vs. Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens for the WWE Championship, Edge vs. The Miz, and The Usos vs. The New Day for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship. WWE is expected to announce more matches for the pay-per-view in the coming weeks. The speculated matches include Becky Lynch vs. Liv Morgan for the RAW Women’s Championship and Charlotte Flair vs. Toni Storm for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
Reigns and Lesnar are undoubtedly two of the biggest names in the company as of yet and they have had many feuds over the last few years. However, this time around Reigns is the biggest heel while Lesnar is portraying babyface gimmick. While the involvement of Paul Heyman has made the feud more enticing to the fans.
