– To update you on the Jeff Hardy story from yesterday evening, Jeff was taken off his flight, flanked by several police officers, on Wednesday morning at the Nashville International Airport, heading to North Carolina. Hardy was traveling with Matt Hardy and Gregory Helms.
“Hardy wasn’t in handcuffs, but he was clearly being ‘escorted’, said an eyewitness who asked not to be identified. “They weren’t touching him though, but they had him flanked. He was wearing the same clothes he left the building in Tuesday night. Once they got him off the plane they allowed him to use his phone, before leading him away.”
There were conflicting stories floating around among WWE performers following Wednesday’s incident. At this point we are still looking to confirm exactly what the reason was that Hardy was removed from the plane and we don’t want to speculate any further beyond that.
We can confirm Hardy was removed from his scheduled flight after boarding the plane and that the story had made its way around Titan Tower, where there was concern about his standing with the company. The story was a big topic of conversation among WWE’s workers yesterday as well. Calls made on Wednesday to the Nashville International Airport’s Investigations department were not returned.
