As everyone knows by now, Jeff Hardy has been suspended from All Elite Wrestling and will not receive his salary until he completes his rehabilitation. The 'Charismatic Enigma' was arrested in June of this year for driving under the influence of alcohol.
The former WWE star had failed all balance tests, recording a BAC three times the legal limit in the state of Florida. The career of Cameron's 44-year-old was significantly conditioned by his addictions, which also undermined his relationship with WWE.
In addition to being a six-time world champion, Jeff became the ninth wrestler in history to have completed the Grand Slam and one of only five to have succeeded in both formats. Hardy also excelled in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, where he won the TNA World Tag Team Championship twice alongside his brother Matt.
Update on Jeff Hardy
The preliminary hearing on Jeff Hardy's case was supposed to be held on August 17 in Volusia County, Florida, but was postponed for 60 days at the request of his attorneys. If he is found guilty, Hardy faces up to five years in prison.
“Mr. Hardy is accused of driving in violation of the license restriction; driving despite the fact that the license had been canceled, suspended or revoked; driving under the influence of alcohol (third offence)" - reported the well-known portal 'PWInsider'
Jeff had already been arrested for DUI in North Carolina in 2018 and 2019. The first time he was sued for speeding, while the second time he was driving despite his license having been revoked. Recently, Mark Henry analyzed the difficult moment Hardy is going through: “In my opinion, WWE and AEW shouldn't have used Jeff's personal demons to create storylines.
Audiences seem to have enjoyed Jeff's feuds with Sheamus, CM Punk and Christian Cage very much. That method was effective, but I don't like it anyway”. Former WWE manager Ricardo Rodriguez weighed in on Jeff Hardy's recent issues: "But the one thing that I will say that I do understand is that battle with addiction because I have struggled with mine and we may...
it may have different names but it's still the same war and I hope he's getting the help that he needs and ultimately and I hope it doesn't come to a very strong moment in time that's going to make him realize that he needs to change." The former WWE personality also had struggles with alcoholism and entered rehab last March.
