It’s part of the process. There are a lot of wrestlers under the WWE umbrella and a lot of them are going to be treated differently than others. Top stars are going to receive different treatment than lower card names, which is going to be the case in almost any field. That may or may not be fair, but it is certainly the case with WWE. As it turns out, one of those top stars is in the kind of trouble that is going to keep him away for a bit.

Jeff Hardy is one of the most popular stars in WWE history, with a resume and history of title wins that are almost unmatched. However, he has a history of substance abuse issues which have held him back from being even more successful. These issues have continued in recent years, with Hardy being arrested for DWI in October 2019. This is going to cause him to miss a major event.

According to, Hardy’s next court date is set for April 6, which is the day after WrestleMania 35. As a result, Hardy is highly unlike to wrestle on the show, as WWE is leaving him out of the ring until his legal issues are settled. It is not clear if Hardy is medically cleared to return to the ring, as he has been out of action since April 2019 due to a leg injury and it is not known when he will be medically cleared to get back in the ring.

Hardy can go when he is healthy. Check out some of his better moments:

Opinion: This is one of those situations that has to be handled very carefully, as substance abuse is not something to ever mess around with in any form. It is clear that while Hardy is incredibly talented, he is also in need of some help with his issues. Maybe he can get better with time, but there are only so many things that can be done if he is not ready to fix things in the first place.
