After Jeff Hardy left a Live Event match in the middle, WWE thought he was doing drugs again and told him to either go to rehab or he will be released from the company.
Jeff told them to release him because he doesn’t need rehab, as he wasn’t doing any drugs.
WWE then had Jeff take a drug test and they released him before the drug test result came back.
During his Twitch stream, Matt Hardy revealed that Jeff passed this drug test and also confirmed the report of WWE wanting to bring Jeff back with a Hall Of Fame induction.
Below is what Matt said:
“Whenever my brother ended up being released, he had taken a drug test. And usually these drug tests come back in 10 to 14 days. You’ll get the sheet that says ‘you are compliant and you were negative on everything.’
Those 10 to 14 days had been up for him, and he never got a result, and he was very curious of where his result was because he knew he had passed his drug test because he hadn’t been doing drugs.
He’s been clean, he’s been clean the whole while he has been there. I know there was an issue, they said ‘Jeff Hardy had this erratic behavior. He jumped over the guardrail or whatever.’ But look, it’s Jeff Hardy. He’s a weird dude, it’s kind of what he does. The erratic behavior is why they gave him the drug test and they sent him home.
Working with WWE is a very stressful job. And I am not going to say that I am here to bury WWE, because I love WWE. The WWE and Vince McMahon and everybody who’s there, I wouldn’t be who I am, I wouldn’t have this life that I have right now. So I have a great appreciation. I’m very grateful for everything I’ve done for them, I’m grateful for every opportunity that they’ve given me.
It’s all good. But it’s also a very stressful environment as well. Anybody who has worked there knows that. So I feel like Jeff was kind of stressed out in many different ways by several different things. And he just told me when he went over that guardrail, he knew he was done. He was done there. He was literally done with the match, so he felt done.
