'I'm so nervous' – Jeff Hardy confirms AEW switch after shock WWE exit as he plots return to wrestling

WWE legend Jeff Hardy has revealed that he plans to join All Elite Wrestling.

The 44-year-old was reportedly dismissed after he refused the company's help and offer of going to rehab late last year.


Hardy was sent home from the WWE's tour after he suddenly left the ring and walked out through the crowd during an un-televised show in Texas.

Now the former world champion appears to have confirmed his next move – and it will be joining brother Matt in AEW.

Speaking to Jared Myers, Hardy said: “I’m going to AEW. I’m so excited… I’m so nervous and excited.”

Hardy is currently under a 90-day non-compete clause that means he officially becomes a free agent on March 9.

But before that date he is not allowed to compete in the ring for any other promotion.

Hardy has been arrested in the past for alcohol and drug-related offences.
