Konnan discusses Jeff Hardy's arrest

Word spread quickly of the umpteenth arrest of Jeff Hardy. The AEW star was arrested in Volusia County, Florida for drunk driving. According to prison records, the 'Charismatic Enigma' was driving with a canceled/suspended/revoked license, which further aggravates his position.

In a video published by TMZ, a not very lucid Jeff is clearly seen failing the control tests, losing his balance several times. All Elite Wrestling CEO Tony Khan immediately took a stand: “We were able to get in touch with Jeff Hardy this afternoon.

The company cannot accept Jeff's behavior. We told him we will help him solve his problem and he said he was willing to cooperate. In the meantime, he will be suspended and will not receive any compensation. He will only be able to return to AEW after having successfully completed the treatment”.

After debuting in AEW on March 9, Hardy has performed more than expected. In the latest edition of the 'Keepin' it 100 'podcast, Konnan criticized AEW for the way they handled Jeff.

Konnan opens up on Jeff Hardy

"Jeff Hardy was not supposed to be used every single week.

Management should have used it once a month, if not once every two months," said Konnan. “At this point in his career, Jeff should be doing promos, taking part in small segments and things like that. He is no longer able to be a full-time superstar.

It doesn't take a genius to figure it out. He needs to rest and take off the thrust, having more than 40 years and a troubled history behind him” - he added to the dose. Booker T also commented on the subject: "Jeff's fight against alcohol addiction is known to all.

I was upset when I heard the news because it is a serious matter. He faces up to five years of imprisonment, also being a repeat offender. At the same time, I believe AEW has some responsibility”. The Charismatic Enigma was a recent guest on the Talk Is Jericho podcast, where he explained that he was tired of going to rehab.

He also felt like he was trapped. “I didn’t think it was that big of a deal, but evidently it was because honestly, it’s my history. The person I had to talk to every week, or every other week as far as after I went to rehab, I had to report to him, and I got so sick of that.

Because I felt like I had to do it to keep my job. I guess I could have just said, 'Look, I am not doing this anymore,' but I felt trapped."
