Although many media reported that big plans were coming for Jeff Hardy next year, all these ideas will remain in the air. And is that the ‘Enigma’ was fired from WWE after refusing to enter a rehabilitation program for his recent relapse with alcohol.
According to Fightful, WWE made the radical decision with Hardy after not accepting help to treat his addiction. A couple of days ago, in a live show, the ‘Enigma’ caused controversy after leaving the fight and disappearing in the middle of the public.
WWE decided to send him home, but did not reveal the causes or why of his performance. According to journalist Sean Ross, Hardy had been under the influence of alcohol that night, which caused the anger of the authorities.

The company offered him a treatment, but Hardy refused and WWE had no choice but to fire him. With this, the former Intercontinental champion puts an end to his third stage in the company, an instance that lasted about four years.
Although there is no official announcement yet, it is only a matter of hours for WWE to make the departure of Jeff Hardy public. It is not the first time that the addiction problems of the ‘Enigma’ take their toll in wrestling.
A couple of years ago, she starred in an embarrassing incident at TNA. In 2011, he faced Sting but his condition was very regrettable, that the fight only lasted a minute and generated discomfort not only from his rival, but from the general public.
It should be noted Jeff Hardy returned to WWE in 2017 with his brother Matt at WrestleMania 33. On his return, the brothers won the titles as a couple, in a ladder match against Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson; Enzo Amore and Big Cass, and Sheamus and Cesaro.
