Jeff Hardy: Former WWE Champion makes first video appearance since release

Jeff Hardy has now spoken since his release from WWE

Jeff Hardy has spoken publicly for the first time since being released by WWE on Thursday of last week.

Last week, news emerged that WWE had come to terms with the release of former World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy.

The release is believed to have been caused by an incident at a live event the weekend prior, where Hardy had to be taken out of the match while it was happening and was sent home from the road.

The report, which came from Fightful, also explained that Jeff Hardy had turned down WWE's offer of rehab before ultimately being let go by the company.

Jeff Hardy hasn't addressed the reports yet, but the former WWE Champion has now publicly spoken for the first time since he was let go last week.

Taking to Matt Hardy's Twitch stream, an exert of which has now been uploaded to Matt's YouTube channel, Jeff promoted four concerts that he has coming up later this week.

Hardy is reportedly subjected to the traditional 90-day WWE non-compete after his release, so won't be able to appear for another promotion for a while, but he is still perusing other ventures.

The important thing is, it seems like Hardy is happy and healthy at the moment, and is keeping himself busy with his music career while he waits for his non-compete clause to expire.
