WWE may have made the biggest mistake of their life, when they released pro wrestling legend and one-half of The Hardy Boyz in Jeff Hardy last December 9th, 2021 due to an unusual incident that occurred at a WWE Live Event, where he competed in a 6-Man Tag Team Match, but abruptly left the match and ran through the crowd.
Despite Jeff being under a 90-day non-compete clause with the WWE, which means he will only be a free agent by Wednesday, March 9th, there have already been a number of hints and teases about him joining All Elite Wrestling soon. We first saw Matt Hardy reference Jeff Hardy in a promo about two weeks ago on AEW TV as well as on Twitter, where he noted that things may be changing and that he might need to take things to the “Xtreme,” which is a reference to when Matt and Jeff were known as Team Xtreme.
The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson), who updated their Twitter bio once again, which they revealed is their own unique way of creating new Twitter posts, wrote, “Bring us Jeff Harvey.” Harvey is reportedly a direct reference to Jeff Hardy as well as The Young Bucks poking fun to when a former WWE announcer in Mike Adamle referred to Jeff as Jeff Harvey at the 2018 WWE Royal Rumble Event.
There was mention of the WWE wanting to bring Jeff Hardy back and an offer was even made for Hardy to be inducted into this year’s WWE Hall of Fame after he tested negative on a drug test, but Jeff Hardy reportedly turned them down. The Hardy Boyz have indie dates lined up and it looks like the legendary tag team will also have a chance to team up on AEW TV if Jeff Hardy ends up signing with the company. The Young Bucks have also teased a potential match between themselves and The Hardy Boyz some time in the near future.
