AEW wrestler Jeff Hardy arrested on DUI charges


By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

AEW wrestler Jeff Hardy was arrested early Monday morning on DUI charges and for driving with a cancelled, suspended, or revoked license. Mike Johnson of reports that Hardy was arrested in Volusia County, Florida after a musical performance.

Powell’s POV: This is Hardy’s third DUI arrest. He is scheduled to wrestle in a ladder match on Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite. Although he will have his day in court, I will be disappointed if he’s allowed to wrestle this week. AEW President Tony Khan has yet to publicly comment on the matter as of this update.

    Enough is enough. As much as we all love and respect what Jeff Hardy has achieved as a professional wrestler, it’s time for him to go away and take care of himself. Sadly it took Sunny to commit vehicular homicide before she was put away for her own good. Given the track record with Jeff dating back to his days as TNA Champion, it’s time for Tony Khan, Matt Hardy, and those that truly care about and love Jeff to get him the help he needs before someone else becomes an innocent victim to his poor decision making.

  2. Until he is found guilty, this should have absolutely no affect on his ability to work.

    I have no doubt he will be found guilty. But it doesn’t matter what I think. He shouldn’t be punished until a verdict is reached. He is innocent until proven guilty.

    If they were to preemptively fire him, I could see your point. But putting the match on hold for now protects everyone involved–Jeff, his opponent, and AEW– and they can reschedule (or not) if he happens to be exonerated,

  4. Damn not a headline I ever wanted to see again. He really needs to step away for a while, I wish he would see Sunny and use her as a wakeup call for himself.

  5. Shouldn’t punish someone for something they haven’t been found guilty of yet (although it happens daily to white conservatives, but if it happens to a liberal of either race the uproar is as loud as it is hypocritical), but here is the question… we still make him a victim despite his CHOICE being what got him in trouble? You know, since everyone is a victim nowadays….

    What utter nonsense, though you’ll do well on Tucker Carlson’s show if you ever land that gig.

    Jeff Hardy is a danger to himself and others. If you can’t see that is a real problem then you’re either too young or just malicious.

    The idea that he “hasn’t been found guilty yet” is laughable. Even if the breathalyzer results aren’t in yet, he’s absolutely guilty of driving on a revoked license. That’s not debatable. He was given a chance to go to rehab and get clean in WWE, but instead his brother made up a bullshit story about it being a work while he literally said fuck WWE on the way out the door for offering to pay for his rehab.

    I have zero remaining sympathy for this man-child and if the match goes through as planned on Wednesday then nobody should give another penny to AEW.

  8. Jeff has had plenty of opportunity to correct his habits and recurring behaviors. He has the ability to rebound than most people simply by staying on the straight and narrow while being in an industry that compensates him generously and has compensated him through much of his life well for what he does. His self-destructive actions and choices in spite of that he has to endure and accept any hardship for.

    Who knows in a weird way this might be for the better right now; I was concerned that one of his risky high spots with his current conditioning was going to get the better of him and disaster was going to be the result.

  9. Dumbass male Sonny.

  10. Is anyone really surprised? like a change of scenery was really going to change him, once an addict, always an addict, hes had so many chances but no one can defend him, he’ll end up like sunny at this rate
