On his latest Twitch stream, AEW Superstar Matt Hardy stated that Jeff Hardy’s negative drug test led to WWE offering him a spot in its annual WWE Hall of Fame 2022.
“They did realize they jumped the gun a little bit whenever they released him before they got these drug test results back. And it’s strange because they waited weeks, and they really had to go after these drug test results to get them back. Because I guess they knew it wasn’t going to paint them in the best light. But longest story short, they offered him to be inducted into the 2022 Hall of Fame,” said Matt.
Matt Hardy further revealed that Jeff Hardy turned down this offer because he didn’t want to be inducted into Hall of Fame alone. Jeff asked the company about whether his brother Matt Hardy also going in but they said no as Matt is under AEW contract.
“Jeff asked ‘so you want to induct me into the Hall of Fame?’ And he said ‘well let me ask you, I know you guys have spoken with AEW. Is this going to be the Hardy Boyz? Is this myself and my brother Matt?’ And they go ‘oh, no no, no, no. We can’t get Matt. He’s under contract at AEW. You know, it would just be you.’ And Jeff said ‘well, that’s a hard no.’ He definitely stood up for the team of the Hardy Boyz.” (H/T: Wrestling Inc)
