Jeff Hardy could return to action any day now

What's the story?

After a brief cameo during The Ultimate Deletion last week on Raw and being present at the Performance Centre last week, it looks like Jeff Hardy could return any day now.

Well, it has emerged in the past hour that the Charismatic Enigma is backstage at tonight's WWE Raw in Cleveland, Ohio.

In case you didn't know...

Jeff Hardy has been out of action since suffering a torn rotator cuff in September. After successful surgery in October, Hardy was said to be looking at 4-6 months on the sidelines and played a short yet powerful role in last week's Ultimate Deletion, appearing in his "Brother Nero" attire to help Matt Hardy defeat Bray Wyatt.

The heart of the matter

Well, hot off the announcement that The Hardy Boyz will face The Bar at The Greatest Royal Rumble Event on April 27th, PW Insider confirmed that former WWE Champion Jeff Hardy is in Cleveland, Ohio for tonight's edition of Monday Night Raw.

Jeff Hardy confirmed via social media two weeks ago that he had completed physical therapy and thus also his road to recovery, with reports stating that Hardy looked great while training at the WWE Performance Center last week.

What's next?

Well, both Jeff and Matt Hardy's next appearance is confirmed for The Greatest Royal Rumble event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on April 27th.

The pair made their return to WWE last year at WrestleMania when they won the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships. Could Jeff return tonight to set up a match on this year's card?

Author's take

After last week's cameo, seemingly as Brother Nero, there's a lot of speculation around Jeff Hardy's return — as well as what will happen between his brother, Matt, and Bray Wyatt!

If Jeff Hardy returns to action tonight, this could be very interesting - although it should be noted that both Samoa Joe and Big Cass were backstage on Raw last week, with neither making a return to television.
