WWE Rumors: Huge update emerges on Jeff Hardy's injury status
What's the story?
Per Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio and Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Jeff Hardy is presently dealing with an injury to his right knee.
Apparently, while the severity of his knee injury is unknown, should the injury require him to step away from in-ring competition for a while; Jeff and his brother Matt Hardy may have to drop their WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championships.
In case you didn't know...
WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions Matt & Jeff Hardy competed in a Tag Team Match against The Usos at a WWE house show in Madison, Wisconsin on April 20th.
It was during the aforementioned matchup that Jeff appeared to have suffered a leg injury, and although The Hardy Boyz defeated The Usos; Jeff hasn't competed in a match since.
The heart of the matter
It's now being reported that Jeff Hardy is dealing with an injury to his right knee, and although the severity of the aforesaid injury is yet to be revealed; one ought to note that Hardy has been wrestling despite having a torn PCL for the past 4 years.
It's common knowledge that Hardy's right knee was damaged in a dirt bike accident back in the year 2015, and he's had to work through the injury ever since.
Additionally, Dave Meltzer has now asserted that there are two separate versions regarding Jeff Hardy's injury that have been circulating in the pro wrestling rumour mill as of late -- one being that Hardy may require surgery, and would have to drop the Tag Team Titles; and the other being that Hardy is simply banged up, however the extent of his injury issues hasn't been clarified yet.
Furthermore, it's being explained that people who have been kept in the loop regarding Hardy's injury status -- due to them being tasked with working on WWE's storylines -- have noted that Hardy is likely to undergo surgery after next week's episode of SmackDown Live.
That could potentially be the reason why Hardy's injury is being closely-guarded by WWE as well as the Superstar himself.
Moreover, people close to Hardy have been noting that although Hardy is indeed injured, they hope his injury issues aren't too bad. It could also be possible that "The Charismatic Enigma" is simply playing it safe, rather than unnecessarily aggravating his injury.
WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions Matt & Jeff Hardy will likely appear on next week's episode of SmackDown Live.
