• Matt Hardy Raises Concern Over WWE Using Jeff Hardy’s Real Life Struggles In A Storyline

Since returning to the ring after a period of 9 months, Jeff Hardy has been involved in a feud with Sheamus, where his real life struggles with substance abuse are being highlighted.

While some fans don’t have any issue with the storyline, some of them aren’t satisfied with it.

Jeff’s brother, Matt Hardy, took to Twitter to discuss how he’s satisfied with his position in AEW, while raising concern for his brother at the same time. He thinks Jeff is under unneeded pressure because of the storyline WWE is using him in.

“I’m very happy with how AEW has let me brand my persona. Allowing me to help younger talent on & off screen, while also respectfully celebrating my legacy & contributions to the industry. I have those same concerns about the unneeded pressure on my brother.”
