The Observer reports:
Jeff Hardy is expected to be out of rehab and back in the ring soon.
A Jeff Returns was also recently teased by Matt Hardy “The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy” PodcastWhen he said that we would all soon get to know the “new Jeff”.
,[Teaming with Wardlow] Looks great. I’m quite excited. We’re getting closer to the point where we meet the new Jeff and we explore his future and what he’s up to. I’m so excited because I think that’s the kind of mindset he has – he knows he has to make some changes and do what’s right. I think he is at the point where he will be this time. I’m excited to have him back and I think it will be wonderful. it will be very fun.”
