• Tony Khan Suspends Jeff Hardy From AEW
After his latest DUI arrest, Jeff Hardy has been suspended from AEW.
AEW President Tony Khan issued the following statement regarding this situation:
“We were able to resume contact with Jeff Hardy this afternoon. AEW does not condone Jeff’s alleged behavior.
We’ve made it clear to Jeff that we’ll assist him in getting treatment for substance abuse issues, which he has indicated that he’s open to receiving.
In the interim, he is suspended without pay, and he can only return to AEW upon successfully completing treatment and maintaining his sobriety.”

Jeff’s elder brother Matt Hardy tweeted the following earlier today:
“It was disheartening to hear the news about my brother yesterday. Recovery isn’t a linear process & I’ll continue doing whatever I can to help my brother be healthy.
Being healthy & well is the most important thing for Jeff, his wife, his children & our family at this time.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 14, 1998) – WCW The Great American Bash 1998
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 14, 1998, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1998’ LIVE on PPV from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
This was the 12th edition of WCW’s annual The Great American Bash events, although the 1986 & 1987 Great American Bash events were actually tours of several shows with the best matches making it to the VHS’, that made them being presented like 1 big event in both years, even though they weren’t.
There was no Great American Bash in 1993 & 1994, but after WCW was sold to the World Wrestling Federation in 2001, Vince McMahon brought the pay-per-view back in 2004 under the WWE banner.
