Report: Jeff Hardy Sent Home from WWE Tour After Strange Match

Greetings, comrades! It is I, your El Presidente, bringing you the latest wrestling news and hot goss. Unfortunately, I have some bad news to share with you, mis amigos. According to a report from comrade Mike Johnson at PWInsider, WWE Superstar Jeff Hardy has been sent home after a strange performance at a WWE house show in Texas. Hardy last wrestled on TV during the Black Friday edition of Friday Night Smackdown.

Report: Jeff Hardy Sent Home from WWE Tour After Strange Match
Jeff Hardy is arrested (in storyline) after a suspected DUI incident on WWE Smackdown in May, 2020, one of many storylines referencing the wrestling legend's struggles with addiction. [screencap]
According to Johnson, Hardy did not wrestle at the WWE house show in Corpus Christi on Sunday night, being replaced by Rey Mysterio. Hardy wrestled on Saturday night in Edinburg, teaming with Xavier Woods and Drew McIntyre against Roman Reigns and The Usos. According to Johnson, this is how the match went down:

Hardy spent most of the match inside the ring, being worked over by Roman Reigns and The Usos and apparently becoming more sluggish as the match continues. Once he made a hot tag to McIntyre, Hardy disappeared into the crowd (followed by security) and didn't return to the ring for the post-match celebration with his partners.

Neither WWE nor Hardy have commented on the incident, but Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful did corroborate Johnson's report.

Hardy's struggles with addiction have been no secret, often used in WWE storylines including in a recent feud with Sheamus last year that saw Sheamus forced Hardy to take a urine test to prove he hadn't fallen off the wagon. Hardy had to fight Sheamus in a hardcore match inside a bar to blow of the feud. Hardy also discussed his issues at length during the Broken Skull Sessions podcast that aired last week, and former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. also discussed Hardy's struggles on a podcast that made the rounds in the wrestling news sphere.

We wish Comrade Hardy the best and hope he is able to work things out and return to the ring safely. Until next time, comrades: socialism or death!

After a successful fourteen-year career as a South American dictator, El Presidente faked his own death in 2013 in order to pursue his two true passions: rigging American elections for Joe Biden, and wrestling dirt sheet reporting. Since opportunities to rig the election for Joe Biden were few and far between until recently, El Presidente mostly focused on the wrestling dirt sheet reporting, where he became one of the best in the business. Unfortunately, the American CIA sabotaged his 1-900 hotline, the pinnacle of his country's wrestling news technology, and imperialist hacks like Meltzer, Johnson, Sapp, and Satin took all the credit on their stupid websites. Finally, El Presidente has found a way to break into the American market by becoming a Bleeding Cool contributor, so get ready for the spread of great wrestling news and socialism, comrades!
