Jeff Hardy was experiencing a kind of second youth in All Elite Wrestling before he was arrested in Florida for drunk driving. The former WWE star was stopped by police last June while she was driving in an obviously altered state and was later released on bail.
The 'Charismatic Enigma' had a BAC that nearly four times the legal limit in the state of Florida. Hardy was immediately suspended by AEW president Tony Khan and 'forced' to go to rehab. Jeff is much better now, but he won't be able to step back into the ring until he has resolved his personal and judicial issues.
Jeff is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular wrestlers of the modern era, having made millions of fans fall in love with his unique style. In addition to being a six-time world champion, Cameron's 45-year-old was able to complete the WWE Grand Slam in both formats.
Jim Cornette on Jeff Hardy
In the latest edition of the 'Drive Thru' podcast, former WWE manager Jim Cornette urged fans to worry about Jeff Hardy's health: “It seems to me that people are only interested in seeing him back in the ring, regardless of the demons.
personal with which he has to deal. The fans don't think about his health and it's a real shame. They are not hoping that Jeff will solve his problems, they just want to know when he will be back in action. The last few years have shown us that continuing to fight is not good for Jeff's health, indeed wrestling ends up exacerbating his personal problems.
It seems clear to me that he has to stay away from the ring for a long time ”. Dutch Mantell also expressed his opinion on this: “Jeff was very drunk when he was arrested last June. He could barely stand up and failed all balance tests.
His BAC was very high and he was driving at such a high speed that the agents had mistaken him for a fugitive”. Prior to his suspension from AEW, Hardy had been scheduled alongside his brother Matt to challenge for the tag titles held by Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus.
The match was eventually won by the Young Bucks, earning them their second reign. "Absolutely, 100%. I would love to do a run with Private Party as a trios team and fight and challenge for the titles, I would love to do that. It'd be so fun. That'd be a cool notch to add to my belt, being a trios champion."
