WWE legend Jeff Hardy to be ruled out until Christmas after knee surgery
WWE legend Jeff Hardy is set to be ruled out of action until at least Christmas through injury.
The daredevil superstar is one of the most-popular in the history of WWE.
And fans were delighted when he and brother Matt claimed the tag-team titles from The Usos just days after WrestleMania 35 last month.
But their joy was shortlived after Jeff hurt himself at a live event a fortnight ago.
That blow forced The Hardy Boyz to appear on this week’s episode of SmackDown to relinquish their recently-acquired championships.
Afterwards the 41-year-old revealed explained his knee will require surgery.
And that will force him to miss between six and nine months as he prepares for a gruelling rehabilitation.
Matt will remain an active member of the roster while his brother recovers.
And he dropped a huge hint on Twitter he is ready to go it alone again as a singles competitor.
After the duo gave up the belts, he tweeted: “It is a sad day.
“Chin up, strong, keep moving forward.
