WWE News: An update on Jeff Hardy's injuries following brutal Hell In A Cell Match
What's the story?
Last night's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view got off to an explosive and brutal start as Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton turned the curtain-jerking match into more of a vomit-inducer with neither man backing down from the destruction and warfare that Hell in a Cell offers.
Randy Orton has already taken to social media to show off his lacerations, but there was a great deal of concern for Jeff Hardy who was stretchered out of the arena after he crashed through a table from the roof of the cell - and WWE has provided an update on The Charismatic Enigma's injuries.
In case you didn't know...
Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton's journey to Hell in a Cell wasn't short of brutality, and it all started when The Viper returned to the WWE, targeting Jeff Hardy during his rivalry with United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura.
Hardy promised that his first ever Hell in a Cell match would leave the WWE Universe with something they'd never forget, and he definitely delivered - but at what cost?
A match that saw Jeff Hardy's earlobe stretched and contorted via a screwdriver and Randy Orton have visible flesh hanging from his leg needed something special to finish it - and Jeff Hardy swinging from the roof of the cell before going sternum first through a table certainly provided that.
The heart of the matter
WWE.com has released the following statement with regards to the injuries suffered by Jeff Hardy last night:
