WWE.com posted the following today. "WWE.com regrets to inform its fans that WWE has severed its relationship with Jeff Hardy effective today. We
wish Jeff the best of luck."
To be honest, this really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. In recent months, Hardy had been late for or missed more than a few WWE house show
events. It had become clear that the grind of being on the road so much had gotten old to him and that he didn't enjoy the demands being a full time
worker placed on him. WWE had cut back on his dates in an effort to help Hardy get rejuvenated before taking him off house shows and television
completely last week, for what I was told were "personal reasons". Hardy had been doing a lot of road work recently with the release of he and brother
Matt's new book. In a few of the interviews on the press tour, he had said that he hadn't lost his fire for the business but those close to him have
told us a different story. Now, Hardy is free of his wrestling commitments and can do what he wants with his life, and attend to any personal matters
he may have. People close to Jeff have told me for years that he doesn't share his brother Matt's passion for the business, at least not to the degree
that Matt does, and that he has saved a lot of the money he has earned and doesn't "need to wrestle". Like WWE.com, I too wish Jeff the best and thank
him for all of the great matches he gave to the fans.
