AEW and Jeff Hardy did not respond to requests for comment. This article will be updated if and when they do.

Hardy is currently out on bond for a total of $3,500. He has an extensive history of substance abuse, which has become a permanent dark cloud hanging over his legendary wrestling career. He was scheduled to compete in a high-profile ladder match against The Young Bucks and Jurassic Express for the AEW World Tag Team Championships next Wednesday on AEW Dynamite.

Hardy last competed alongside his brother Matt at AEW Double or Nothing in a victory over the Young Bucks. Many were quick to point out Hardy’s physical condition, as he looked pretty beat up. As a precaution, Hardy was drawn from a 10-man tag team match on AEW Dynamite the following Wednesday.

Before coming to AEW, Hardy exited WWE in a strange way during a live event in Edinburgh, Texas. In a now infamous incident, Hardy abruptly left the crowd after exhibiting erratic behavior during the main event. Hardy was immediately released by WWE after he reportedly declined rehab.

Although all signs pointed to another relapse for Jeff Hardy in Edinburgh, AEW star Matt Hardy went to bat for his brother, stating that Jeff Hardy passed his final drug test with WWE.

“The erratic behavior is the reason he was drug tested and sent home,” Matt explained.

“He broached it with me and like I was saying, he knew at the time… working for WWE is a very stressful job. I’m not going to bury WWE, I love WWE, I love Vince McMahon, everyone who is there.” . I wouldn’t be who I am and I wouldn’t have this life right now. I have great appreciation and I am very grateful for everything I have done for them and every opportunity they have given me. Everything is alright. , but it is also a very stressful environment. Anyone who has worked there knows that. I feel that Jeff was stressed in many ways about various things and he confessed to me that when he went over the railing, he knew he was done. he literally ended the match and felt finished.”

“Even subconsciously, when I went over the railing, I mean, I was done,” Jeff Hardy said on an episode of “Talk is Jericho” (h/t wrestling inc).

“It was just unpredictable, erratic behavior that Jeff Hardy has from time to time… Then the next day they’re like, ‘Go to rehab or we’ll release you.'”

Despite Hardy’s unfavorable history, including the new controversy surrounding his departure from WWE, AEW literally couldn’t sign Jeff Hardy fast enough. Hardy debuted with AEW on March 9. immediately after the expiration of his 90-day non-compete clause with WWE.

Pro wrestling’s addiction to Jeff Hardy is as dark as Hardy’s own addictions. Hardy has had legal problems and struggles with drugs and alcohol during his stints at every major wrestling company that has employed him. AEW is no different, as the professional wrestling industry continues to be one of the biggest enablers of Hardy’s never-ending struggles with substance abuse.
