WWE legend Jeff Hardy just can't seem to catch a break lately, being used primarily as a jobber for months until he finally got back in the win column last week with a victory over Raw-debuting NXT Champion Karrion Kross. The one thing Hardy has caught though is COVID-19 unfortunately and that will keep him out of action for the next couple of weeks at least as he enters self-quarantine.
The revelation of Jeff Hardy's diagnosis didn't come from WWE themselves (as they don't like their talent being outed for testing positive), but rather from recordBar, a venue in Kansas City, MO that Hardy had been advertised to appear at in a sold-out event. The venue said the following in a post on their Facebook page:
"We regret to inform you that the event with Jeff Hardy to take place on Monday July 26, 2021 at recordBar in Kansas City, MO will have to be postponed to a later date.
Jeff Hardy just tested positive for covid this morning, and will have to quarantine for the next two weeks, and will not be participating in any live events for the next two weeks.For now, all tickets will be held to await a rescheduled date. Once the new date is announced, if you cannot attend the new date, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a refund.You will receive another email from us when the new date is announced."
