• Backstage News On Jeff Hardy’s WWE Status
Former WWE Champion Jeff Hardy appeared on RAW after a while on last night’s show.
He faced Jinder Mahal and lost. He lost to Mahal on last week’s episode of WWE Main Event as well.
Hardy has been losing matches a lot as of late and fans are wondering if Hardy’s WWE contract is about to expire (as WWE likes to make talent lose a lot on their way out of the company).
However, that’s not the case.
PWInsider is reporting that Hardy signed a new contract with WWE last year and he’s going to be with the company for a couple more years at least.
“We are told by a WWE source that Hardy still has ‘a good chunk of time left on his deal’ as he acknowledged last year that he had signed a new deal.
At the time, PWInsider was told that new deal was in the 2-3 year range.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (May 11, 2019) – Old School WCW Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2019, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran Silver King (Real name: César Cuauhtémoc González Barrón) at the age of 51 due to a heart attack in the ring.
If you were watching Ted Turner’s WCW TV during the famous Monday Night Wars, you will most likely remember him as one of the luchadores that were part of the Cruiserweight Division.
Silver King lasted from 1997 till 2000, before he returned to his home country Mexico.
He died from a heart attack while working a match in the UK in 2019 and was later posthumously inducted into the AAA Hall of Fame.
† REST IN PEACE SILVER KING
