He’ll be around for a bit. You never know when you are going to see someone get injured in the wrestling world, which can be one of the scariest things about the wrestling industry. One of the scariest things about an injury is finding out how long someone is going to be gone. An injury can put you on the shelf for a very long time and WWE is keeping track of how long someone was gone.
Jeff Hardy seems to be back to his better days as he has gotten around his injury issues and seems to be doing better with his substance issues. He is the Intercontinental Champion again and is one of the bigger stars on SmackDown. That being said, there are still some things that he had to deal with before and WWE is going to be keeping on to him for a bit as a result.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE has added about twenty months onto Hardy’s contract due to various injuries that he has suffered during his current tenure with the company. Hardy suffered a shoulder injury in September 2017 and was out of action for about seven months. Then in April 2019, Hardy injured his knee and was out of action until March 2020 but then did not wrestle again for nearly two months after a single match. Hardy’s current contract ends near the end of 2012.
Hardy has had quite the WWE run. Check out what he has done over the years:
Opinion: I know this might not seem incredibly fair to Hardy, but at the same time, he has been back in the company for three and a half years and has been injured for about a year and a half of that time. That is a crazy amount of time and it is understandable that Hardy should probably have to stick around a good while longer. If nothing else, at least Hardy is being pushed at the moment so some of that twenty months will be spent at a somewhat higher level.
Is this unfair? What will Hardy do during his remaining time in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
