An important update regarding Jeff Hardy's preliminary trial has arrived. As everyone will remember, the former WWE star was arrested in June last year in Florida for drunk driving, before being released after paying bail.
The 'Charismatic Enigma' was immediately suspended by AEW president Tony Khan and forced to go to rehab, on pain of being fired. Not only was Jeff driving under the influence of alcohol, but his license had been suspended earlier.
Since his arrest, the preliminary hearings have been constantly postponed for various reasons. During the first hearing, the former WWE Champion pleaded 'not guilty' To provide clear evidence, the officers who stopped him have made public the video of his arrest.
Hardy had a blood alcohol level that was nearly four times the legal limit in the state of Florida.
Latest update on Jeff Hardy
According to the latest rumors, the next hearing should take place next Wednesday at 8:30. Jeff Hardy is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular wrestlers of the modern era, having captivated millions of fans around the world with his electrifying streaks.
Fans keep wondering when they will be able to see Jeff in action again. In the latest edition of the 'Extreme Life' podcast, Matt Hardy provided an important update on his brother's future. “Things haven't gone the right way in the last few months and Jeff has been having a difficult time” – Matt began.
“Everyone's hope is that he will be able to turn this bad experience into something good and that he will give a positive turn to his life. He can come out of this story even stronger, he just has to want it. Maybe he'll come back to fight or maybe not, I can't give you a certain answer” – he added.
In recent weeks, many fans have drawn a parallel between the situation of Jeff Hardy and that of Matt Riddle. The latter was in fact suspended by WWE after failing two drug tests. 'The Original Bro' is in doubt for Royal Rumble 2023.
Currently suspended AEW star Jeff Hardy became a sensation with WWE fans in the 2000s due to his daredevil stunts. "When Jeff finally got to the building, we told him what was going on. 'I'm not doing that,' he said. 'I'm not kissing my brother’s girlfriend.'
They tried talking him into it, but he was adamant. 'No way,' he said. 'I'm not doing it.' They eventually relented, and all Jeff and I did was hug. The whole experience was weird and awkward," she added.
