Jeff Hardy, who was arrested early this week in Florida after driving while intoxicated, was indeed on his way to a brain scan.
According to Bryan Alvarez of F4WOnline, The Hardys were scheduled to win the AEW World Tag Team Championships in a Ladder Match, but following their match against The Young Bucks at AEW Double or Nothing, those plans were scrapped. Following the match, Jeff Hardy was noted to be in bad shape and didn’t remember anything about the match.
Though advertised for the Ladder Match, the Hardys would be taken out before it began. Due to his condition following Double or Nothing, Jeff Hardy was never going to compete in the Ladder Match.
Before heading out to drive to his scan, Hardy drank and got behind the wheel of a car. He was arrested and has since been suspended indefinitely by AEW.
Matt Hardy, speaking on his podcast “The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy,” had the following to say about his brother.
“After speaking to Jeff the last couple of days, he is just so remorseful, so embarrassed. He, like, hates himself and I think that’s part of it too. He has to know, obviously, what he did was atrocious and terrible, terrible decision-making but then also he has to know that people love him. It’s very important and just like you said, at the end of the day, it all comes down to the individual. You have to keep yourself in check, you have to be on top of yourself, you are the only person that can really ensure you’re not going to go awry or go in a bad direction whether it’s because of mental issues or because of addiction issues.”
