Matt Hardy on why WWE didn't let Jeff Hardy go?
Matt Hardy left WWE last in 2020. Since leaving the company, Hardy went on to join AEW. He is currently in a hellacious feud with Sammy Guevara. As for Matt Hardy's brother, he is in the WWE and is the Intercontinental Champion. Jeff Hardy beat AJ Styles a couple of weeks back to win the Intercontinental Championship for the fifth time.
Matt Hardy was on Chris Van Vliet’s show this week. On the show, the AEW star spoke about his time in WWE and his run in AEW. During the conversation, Matt Hardy spoke about his brother Jeff Hardy and why he is still in the WWE while Matt has gone to AEW.
“Jeff had two major surgeries during his deal. He had shoulder surgery and then he had the knee surgery. He also had some personal time off he needed to take. Altogether it was about a year and eight months. Once that happens in WWE if they still continue to pay you, they can extend his contract so he had a year and eight months tacked on to his deal as opposed to my deal. I worked all the way through without ever being injured, so that is why Jeff is still working there now.” (h/t WrestlingNews.co)
