The Pro Wrestling World Reacts to Jeff Hardy’s WWE Release

News broke on Thursday that Jeff Hardy had been released by the WWE, bringing his third run with the company to a close. The release came just days after Hardy was sent home following an incident at a WWE live event in Edinburg, Texas, where he left during a six-man tag team match by walking through the crowd. Hardy’s issues with substance abuse have followed him throughout his decades-spanning career, and Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp noted after the news broke, “I’ve heard WWE offered Jeff Hardy help and rehab, and it was not accepted. Here’s to hoping things get better for him.”

Fans and wrestlers alike then took to social media to offer their support to Hardy. You can see some of the reactions in the list below. What do you think is next for the Grand Slam Champion? Let us know down in the comments.

Jeff Hardy is so beloved by his fans and his peers. I’ve never heard a negative word about him & he’s always treated me with such kindness. Just wishing him and his family the very best.

A Daily Battle

Addiction is a lifelong battle.
It’s not Jeff Hardy’s fault.
It’s not WWE’s fault.
It’s not wrestling’s fault.

Commitment to the responsibility of sobriety is one people have to make on a daily basis. One moment of inconsistency can ruin your life.

Fan Support

I think Jeff Hardy is one of those guys that just garners empathy and compassion from crowds. His gravity-defying stunts obviously helped get him to the place he is today, but people identify with his struggles, and what he has overcome.

I imagine they will continue to do so.

Jeff Hardy transcends race, age, sex, gender, class, nationality, everything. You show a 45 year old dude in Slovakia Jeff Hardy he gonna start putting up the hand signal and doing the dance.
