Jeff Hardy is a former World Champion and he has definitely had his own fair share of ups and downs throughout his career. Most recently Hardy was part of a brutal Hell in a Cell match with Randy Orton, where he was stretched out of the arena but back on live events the next day.
Even though Hardy has been able to overcome a number of injuries throughout the course of his career, the Charismatic Enigma recently shared a story on Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast where he revealed that the decades of bumps have taken their toll on his body.
“I did that a few months ago. I was eating breakfast and was sitting on a hard stool in the airport; we had a group flight or something. I was just sitting there for a while and I got up and my back started bothering me, and when I got into the flight my back really started hurting me. I was on my tip-toes trying to walk getting off of the flight.
“I was freaking out there for a while because the pain came out of nowhere. I didn’t do an exact thing for the pain to come, but it is just one of those things as you get older stuff like that happens,” he said via Wrestlinginc.
Hardy is now 41 years old and the fact that he has been wrestling full-time for more than two decades means that it was always going to catch up with him. His brother Matt Hardy was recently sidelined with a recurring back injury and reports suggest that his career could be over.
Jeff Hardy’s bump at Hell in a Cell wrote him off WWE TV, so it’s is unknown when he will make his return.
