However, the former WWE Champion turned down the offer and decided to part ways with the company. His brother and AEW star Matt Hardy recently confirmed that his Jeff also rejected an offer to go back to WWE following his release, with the company offering him a spot in the WWE Hall of Fame this year. Jeff recently talked about his WWE release.
Jeff Hardy opens up on the matter
While speaking with YouTuber Jared Myers, Jeff Hardy revealed the last straw that made him want to leave WWE. It was ultimately WWE wanting Hardy to go to rehab.
They released me and tried to make me go to rehab but I’m just so over it. My dream match was with Roman Reigns, I’ve talked about that many times but then I said, ‘so you want me to go away for like 28 days just to save my job?’ No. You know what’s important to me? Family. My two daughters, my wife, they believe in me. F*ck WWE man. It’s like a private, personal thing. I’m not going to f*cking go to rehab. If they believe in me, that’s all that matters, my wife and my two girls.”
Sean Ross Sapp tweeted, and later deleted, “I heard breathalyzed on the spot and passed. Will ask about the drug test.”
Since his WWE release in December, Jeff Hardy had been heavily rumored to be joining his brother Matt in AEW. ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ recently confirmed that he is indeed joining AEW. Jeff is currently under a non-compete with WWE until March 9th and we will have to see how AEW plans his debut. AEW Revolution pay-per-view is right around the corner and we might end up witnessing the huge debut of Jeff Hardy at the show.
