Jeff Hardy was recently interviewed for WWE’s YouTube channel to talk about his injury. Hardy announced last night that he and his brother would be relinquishing the SmackDown Live Tag Team Titles due to his knee injury. During his interview, Hardy revealed how long he’ll be sidelined, and also detailed what the next few months are going to look like for him.
Check out what he had to say below:
How long he’ll be out:
You know, we had the greatest match with The Usos, we won the SmackDown Tag Team Titles, and then Lars attacked – my knee has been weak for a while but he just put the finishing point on it, man. It was a massacre, and it’s my worst nightmare now because I’m going to be out for six to nine months.
What the next few months are going to look like for him:
Surgery in a couple of days. I’m gonna have my whole right knee repaired and everything in there that’s bad. And, so, for six to nine months, it’s gonna be rough. I mean, hopefully, the first four months go extremely well my first injury in pro wrestling was when I tore my rotator cuff over a year ago.
I made it six months from that when Matt and I first came back, then that happened, so then I made it a year doing the face paint and all that, and now this has happened. So it’s a bummer but at the same time, I needed a new knee. There was a lot of wear and tear on it so I’m pretty confident I’m gonna come back better than I was or have been the last – gosh, four years.
