According to a previous report from Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Hardy was sent home after he appeared increasingly “sluggish” in the ring during a WWE live event on December 4. Hardy competed alongside King Woods and Drew McIntyre in a six-man tag team bout against The Bloodline, but he ultimately left the arena through the crowd with security following him to the backstage area.
Hardy was later sent home from the tour and replaced by Rey Mysterio on the December 5 show in Corpus Christi, Texas. Hardy’s last televised appearance came on the December 3 episode of SmackDown when he and Drew McIntyre brawled with Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss, setting up an advertised singles match with Corbin for the December 10 episode. Sapp later said he was told that WWE offered Hardy help and rehab, but it was not accepted.
Hardy’s latest run with WWE was his third with the company; he returned in 2017 at WrestleMania 33 alongside his brother, Matt, to win the Raw Tag Team Championship. During this run, Hardy also won the Intercontinental Championship and United States Championship.
