Jeff Hardy has been one of the most exciting superstars WWE fans have ever seen. 

His high-flying ability and daredevil attitude, paired with the charisma on show every time he steps in the ring, means that he's a solid fan favourite anywhere he goes. 

But there's no doubt that Hardy's wrestling style has taken a serious toll on his body. 

RUNNING OUT OF TIME?

When he and brother Matt returned to WWE at WrestleMania 33 in 2017, there was a lot of talk suggesting that both men were nearing the end of their careers.

That certainly seems to be true for Matt - who's expected to transition to a backstage role in the company once his contract ends next year. 

But Jeff's future is less clear. In fact, he's currently in the middle of a brutal feud with Randy Orton. 

ORTON VS HARDY

Back in July, The Viper made a return of his own at Extreme Rules - and he's been tormenting Hardy ever since. 

Orton has vowed to destroy the "Charismatic Enigma" and it looks like their feud will finally be settled next month, at Hell in a Cell. 

Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton will finish their brutal feud inside the cell

Interestingly, that match may actually have been the direct wish of Hardy - who's been desperate to get inside the cell for a very long time. 

JEFF GETS HIS WISH

In an appearance on WWE's "Table For 3" last December, the Hardy's sat down with Finn Balor to discuss all things wrestling. 

During their conversation, Jeff revealed that he's always wished to have a Hell in a Cell match at some point in his career. 

In 2017, Hardy claimed that he wants a match inside the cell - he'll now get his wish

"What I want to do before I'm done here [in WWE] is a Hell in a Cell [match], for sure," Hardy said. "Whether it's tag team or solo."

Finally, 25 years into his wrestling career, he'll get his wish against Orton. 

EXPECT SOMETHING BIG 

With the reputation that Hardy has built himself over the years, fans will be expecting fireworks when he steps into the cell next month. 

Hardy's made a career on daredevil moves, and Hell in a Cell will be no different

The stipulation itself lends to plenty of massive spots - but as much as the WWE Universe will want to see Jeff unload, at 40-years-old, surely he'll have to be somewhat careful. 

Although, the chances of Hardy dialing it back are pretty slim, considering he attempted - and missed - a Swanton Bomb on the ring apron during his match at SummerSlam 10 days ago.  

Brutal. Now his match with Orton has been announced for Hell in a Cell, we can't wait for September 16.
