Jeff Hardy seeking help for personal health issues during WWE absence

WWE's Jeff Hardy is said to have responded well to treatment relating to his personal problems, as the wrestler continues to recover from a knee problem.

As well as his recent injury, the 42-year-old has ran into trouble with the law twice in recent months after driving under the influence.

Hardy was arrested in July and October for public intoxication and drink driving respectively.

WWE chiefs implored the veteran performer to seek help for his out-of-the-ring problems, which Hardy agreed to do.

Management want the fan-favourite to tackle his issues and make a full recovery fitness-wise before making an explosive return to action.

“Jeff Hardy’s deal is that it’s frozen cause he’s hurt," Mike Johnson of PW Insider said.

"So, they’ve tacked time on so why would they fire him when they can hold him even longer?

"As we know Jeff is in the middle of another legal quandary.

"I can tell you from a source very close to the situation that WWE strongly implored Jeff to address his health and we’re told that Jeff is doing that and really aggressively dove right into it.

“So, you can’t fire the guy when he’s doing what you ask him to do. We’ll see what happens when he goes to court.”

Hardy's contract has been frozen since April when he first picked up the knee injury.

His court case for the October charge was scheduled for last week but has been rescheduled for mid-January.

The American made his pro-wrestling debut in 1993 and has been in and out of WWE action ever since.

Hardy's brother Matt is out of contract next year.
