• Jeff Hardy Set To Get A Big Push In WWE, Reason Behind This Move
On this week’s post-WrestleMania 36 edition of SmackDown, WWE aired a highlight video on Jeff Hardy’s career.
According to Wrestlingnewsco, Jeff Hardy is scheduled to get a big push in WWE because he has 1 year left on his contract, and WWE wants to show him that they are the best option for him, not AEW.
Vince McMahon is reportedly impressed with Hardy wanting to get clean. Jeff went into inpatient rehab for the first time last year.
Vince wants to show that Jeff will be treated well in WWE, both creatively and financially.
Jeff’s brother, Matt Hardy, recently joined AEW after his WWE contract expired. To make sure this doesn’t happen with Jeff, WWE is expected to make him a big money offer once his contract is close to expiry date.
Jeff is also set to get his “No More Words” theme song back soon.
