– In a WWE Universe blog on Jeff Hardy’s WWE exit, Matt Hardy thanks his departing brother for “breaking his back for the sake of our business day in and day out.” He adds that even internet fans who dislike Jeff Hardy should appreciate how he got CM Punk over this summer, while he asks Jeff Hardy fans to thank the “Charismatic Enigma” for his unselfish entertainment.
Matt partially attributes Jeff Hardy’s departure to nagging neck and back injuries (“He needs time away to heal physically and mentally”), before putting over the likelihood of Jeff making a return down the road.
