It’s always a risk. Injuries can take place at any given time in wrestling, but there are ways to make them that much more likely. Some wrestlers have a much more high risk or even dangerous style which can often turn out badly for them. Occasionally these styles can backfire and you can see what kind of results they cause. That was the case a few months ago and it is still being felt today.
There are very few daredevils in wrestling at the level of Jeff Hardy. He has wrestled of those high risk styles for more than twenty years now and has all of the scars and injuries he needs to prove it. That is the kind of thing that can catch up with you in a hurry and unfortunately it seems that Hardy is moving more in that direction as his career starts to wind down.
In a new interview with Metro, Hardy revealed that he is still somewhat banged up from his Symphony of Destruction match against Elias on November 30. Hardy said that his back is still injured from a guitar shot during the match, which he called part of the job. Despite the injury, Hardy has not missed any ring time and wrestled a pair of matches during this week’s Monday Night Raw.
Opinion: I know Hardy has managed to survive everything over his career but you have to wonder how much longer he can keep this up. Hardy is 43 years old and has wrestled one of the more physical styles throughout his career. At some point that is going to catch up with him and I think we passed that time many years ago. I’m scared to see where this leads for him because he can’t keep this up forever.
