While he had refused it in the past, we can report that Jeff Hardy is now getting help for his issues. And, after a landmark announcement, the wrestling world reacts to the Roe v. Wade decision being overturned.
Jeff Hardy Getting Help
He has long wrestled his demons, but we are told now that Jeff Hardy is finally getting more help.
The news came via Tony Khan’s media call ahead of this weekend’s AEW show.
Khan said he thinks Hardy is doing better, and confirmed that the AEW star and former WWE Superstar was in treatment for his alcohol issues.
Hardy, of course, was recently arrested once again for driving under the influence.
It was not that long ago where Jeff Hardy behaved strangely during a WWE match, which led to the company insisting on Hardy getting help. When he refused, he was released.
That situation may not be exactly the same, but the point here is that Jeff Hardy has had help offered previously.
This time, however, is certainly (maybe?) different.
Per Khan’s comments during the media scrum, this is Hardy’s last chance.
It is an interesting comment to make, for a few reasons.
For one, some questioned Khan being so quick to sign Hardy, if indeed he was having issues again.
Another reason? While Hardy’s issues are well-documented, as far as we know the recent DUI is his one and only alcohol issue since joining AEW.
If Tony Khan indeed has Jeff Hardy on a short leash, maybe that is what the future Hall of Famer needs.
For now, the big takeaway is that Hardy is in rehab, working his way back to AEW.
Wrestling World Reacts To Roe V. Wade Decision
Friday was a big day in the United States, and the wrestling world reacts to the Roe V. Wade decision being overturned.
For those who don’t follow that side of the news, the US Supreme Court overturned the decision from the 1970’s and reverted abortion laws to each of the 50 states.
While abortion is not banned in the country, many people are up in arms about the news, and that included many wrestling notables.
Some, like conservative WWE Hall of Famer Glen Jacobs, were pleased with the news:

However, his tweet was not taken so well by other current stars.
Okay now hit men with vasectomies or is it just women who have to have their bodies be controlled?

Freedom should include the right to choose.
No longer the land of the free. #HerBodyHerChoice

Now, you can see most are on the one extreme, versus that of Kane’s, at least out of those posts shared here.
