Jeff Hardy and his brother Matt returned to the WWE at WrestleMania 33...

Just hours before this week's edition of Monday Night Raw, the WWE announced that Jeff Hardy has a torn rotator cuff that will require surgery.

The injury occurred during the six-pack challenge to end Raw last week where Hardy, along with his brother Matt competed against Jason Jordan, Elias, Curtis Axel, and Bo Dallas, with the winner getting to face The Miz at No Mercy for the WWE Intercontinental Championship.

Dr Stephen Daquino of the WWE Medical Staff would explain the injury in more detail with the following quote below:

“It’s a full thickness tear of his supraspinatus tendon and a couple of other areas in the shoulder. He’s going to go for evaluation and probably for surgery next week.”

There is a chance that Hardy also tore his labrum and once they go in to repair the rotator cuff, they will take a look at his labrum. Recent examples of these injuries (Sheamus and Cesaro) had a recovery time of four to six months.

Jeff talked to WWE.com earlier today and provided the following:

“It’s depressing,” Hardy told WWE.com. “More than any time in a career, it’s those times that make you go, ‘Wow, I love professional wrestling.’ It sucks that I can’t be involved in [a] match or can’t get in there and do what I normally do because I’m injured, but I just have to get over that, stop worrying about it and look forward and push myself to get repaired and healed and come back better than ever with a brand-new shoulder.”

Hardy did also say that the WWE Universe could still see him on television in some capacity while he heals. In the meantime, this could mean a singles push for Matt Hardy, and maybe the official transformation into his broken character in the WWE.

Everyone at Sportskeeda wishes for Jeff to have a speedy recovery.
