Ronda Rousey will face Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 38 and not Becky Lynch, Dave Meltzer reports. Jeff Hardy will always remain one of the most loved and talented pro wrestlers in the history of the business. He has competed in numerous promotions throughout his career, including the likes of WWE ROH and TNA Wrestling. Fans are certainly well aware of his history of substance abuse issues and the personal demons he had to face. Jeff Hardy’s AEW debut tease was also revealed.
He is also part of The Hardy Boyz alongside his brother Matt Hardy. The two are currently in different pro wrestling companies but that does not mean they will not be working together again in the future. Jeff Hardy won the WWE Championship after defeating Triple H and Edge in a triple threat match at Armageddon 2008.
Jeff Hardy recently spoke on his brother Matt Hardy’s Twitch stream, where Jeff Hardy talked about his release from the company in an amusing way as he joked about it. Hardy said that wants to team up with Matt Hardy in an Ultimate Deletion, which would likely be in AEW. In addition to that, he was listening to “Release Me” by Wilson Phillips on the stream.
According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Tony Khan is currently waiting to contact Jeff Hardy for a contract.
“There’s discussions through different people and you can pass messages, but as far as Tony Khan directly talking… Every situation’s different. I’m not saying he never talks to anyone from another organization or anything like that. I don’t know what he does and doesn’t do, but I know from certain people that he avoided talking to certain people that are top people until the legal right day.
So, under that guise, you know, Jeff [Hardy] is not going to be a free agent until March. So, I don’t know that there’s any specific thing going. I mean a lot of people are expecting it, and I am too, honestly. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to happen.
But the Hardy Boyz, as a team, again, because of Jeff. They’re going to be a hot tag team. And God damn, that company has got a lot of really good teams that can… Whether you want to call it ‘carry them,’ you know… Matt’s limited right now. You can tell he’s hurting and everything.
But, the bottom line is, the Young Bucks and Hardys matches a couple years ago. I mean, they had that latter match that was unbelievable. And you got FTR, they’re specialists at this. Santana and Ortiz are a great team. Pentagon and Fenix is a weird one. That one could have trouble because of the style thing, but also Jeff Hardy with Pentagon and Fenix could be really good.”
