Jeff Hardy’s New Court Date for DWI, WWE’s Plans for Him on SmackDown

WWE superstar Jeff Hardy‘s next court hearing for his DWI arrest from last October has been delayed yet again, and his hearing is now scheduled to take place on July 16 in Moore County, North Carolina. His hearing was initially scheduled around the WrestleMania season and was postponed until May 11 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the lockdown in full-flow and no end in sight, almost all the court hearings are being pushed back, and the former WWE Champion will have to wait for a few more months before facing the verdict.

The North Carolina calendar has the hearing for Hardy listed on July 16 in courtroom 201 for the charges of Driving While Impaired and the thirty-day revocation of his driver’s license.

Hardy is infamous for his several run-ins with the law, and this was the latest in a series of several arrests for the Charismatic Enigma. He returned to WWE recently, and the company has started a new video series about his career on SmackDown.

It features his career from the beginning, and the final chapter will be aired this Friday. Hardy’s arrest took place during his time off due to injury, after suffering a knee injury after WrestleMania 35 last year. He made a triumphant return in March, taking down King Corbin in his return match.

WWE is currently building a feud between two former WWE Champions in Hardy and Sheamus, who himself had a long layoff and returned to SmackDown earlier this year.

Hardy was rumored to be getting a big push, which was said to be a way to keep him away from All Elite Wrestling. Jeff’s brother, Matt, recently transitioned to AEW and is already in the top feuds in the company.

Hardy’s contract was set to expire at the same time as his brother Matt, but WWE added more months to his contract due to the time he spent out of action.
