• “I got busted for getting pills illegally” – Jeff Hardy Thought His Life Was Over In 2009
On the latest episode of Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, WWE Legend Jeff Hardy revealed that he thought his life was over after his 2009 arrest.
Here’s what Jeff Hardy had to say:
“I was ordering pills illegally in the mail [and] got busted. SWAT team comes into my house, me and my wife and our little dog. I was busted. I got busted for getting pills illegally. I thought my life was over. [I] went to jail that weekend. It was a mind-blowing experience. I was terrified. I thought my life was over. That was the time that really scared me straight.
Oh my god. It’s terrifying when you’re looking at it [with] your wife beside you. Handcuffed, face down to the floor. I wrote a song about it called rebellious. It’s about that fear. All those cops in there. It was terrifying. It was completely surreal.
But again, overall, in the big picture of everything, [it has] made me a better human being. They were huge mistakes. I was like, ‘I’m probably never going to go back to WWE, they can never trust me again, after all this.’ Even though if I’m doing good in this other wrestling world, I just didn’t know.”
Soon after he left WWE in 2009, Jeff Hardy was arrested and spent 10 days in jail with an additional 30 months of probation.
That incident led to him not returning to WWE but instead going to Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) in January 2010.
Jeff eventually returned to WWE in 2017 and is currently a member of the SmackDown roster.
