According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE has offered Jeff Hardy a seat in the WWE Hall of Fame 2022, with the wrestler rejecting the proposal, possibly following a small thing that happened with drug testing.
“John Laurinaitis called Jeff Hardy to return him a few weeks ago, including an offer to put him in the 2022 Hall of Fame. Hardy refused and asked for drug test results because he knew he wouldn't test positive for recreational drugs.
Hardy and his wife took six weeks to get the results." It seems that Jeff Hardy has made a choice following his heart and the important thing, also knowing his problems in the past, is that he is happy and at peace with himself, even if one placed in that Hall of Fame surely if he deserves it for what he did in the ring.
Jeff Hardy turned down the WWE Hall of Fame
In his latest interview with the Wrestling Perspective podcast, Matt Hardy wanted to talk about his future and his brother Jeff Hardy, also talking a lot about the relationship that has existed between the two practically all their lives and saying: "When he comes back with me and we form our team together, with Jeff, being the Hardy Boyz is like riding a bike.
You just have to get on it and ride it. It's the easiest business. It's a really cool thing. I've been there ever since the boy was born, literally. We know each other, inside and out, and have a blast. Jeff's excitement and passion for wrestling have been reborn now that he's moved away from there and there are new horizons ahead of him.
We are very excited about this. Without going into too much detail, I am very happy and excited about where 2022 will lead the Hardy Boyz. I feel like it's going to be a great year for Matt and Jeff." We obviously wish Jeff Hardy the best for his life and his career, even alongside his brother Matt who doesn't seem to want to give up with him.
The WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony is as much a part of WrestleMania as the show itself. As the "Road to WrestleMania" begins, we know it's only a matter of time before that year's class of inductees are announced, week by week.
Other things we took into account are where WrestleMania is being held this year (Dallas, Texas), who is still on good terms with WWE, who will draw the most viewers, and, you know, who deserves to be in there. We also considered the fact that the "Forbidden Door" has been "opened," meaning it's not out of the realm of possibility that someone signed with a rival company could be inducted.
