Jeff Hardy is currently on the shelf as he suffered a knee injury. He required surgery for that and now he is busy recuperating.
Jeff’s injury had unfortunate timing as well, even though no one can say when one might get injured. He and his brother Matt had to relinquish the Smackdown Tag Team Titles due to his injury.
Brad Shepard reports that WWE realizes how big of a loss Jeff Hardy is as he still sells a lot of merchandise. While it will be quite a long time he is back, the projected timetable for his return seems to be the first quarter of 2020.
According to a source in #WWE, @JEFFHARDYBRAND will be out until sometime in the 1st quarter of 2020. Jeff’s absence is considered a big loss internally, as he still sells merchandise pretty well.
Hopefully, Jeff is able to recover sooner rather than later and perhaps make it back in time for Wrestlemania 36.
