Former WWE Champion Jeff Hardy was reportedly sent home from a WWE live event without competing in what is being called a “rough night” for him.

PWInsider first reported that Hardy was not at the live event held in Corpus Christi, Texas on Sunday, 5th of December saying that the SmackDown star had been sent home.

On the Saturday night event in Edinburg, Texas, Jeff Hardy headlined teaming with King Woods and Drew McIntyre to take on The Bloodline in a six-man tag team match. In that match, Hardy was said to have taken the lion’s share of the punishment from Roman Reigns and The Usos but once he tagged his partners in, Hardy left through the crowd and did not re-emerge after the bout.

The report continues to say that Rey Mysterio took Hardy’s place in the six-man main event in Corpus Christi.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful has also confirmed PWInsider’s report on social media, adding that the “rough night” in Edinburg, Texas could have been what saw Jeff Hardy sent home:

“Unfortunately can confirm PWInsider’s report that Jeff Hardy was sent home after what was called a “rough night” for him, that became evident as last night’s live event match went on. Best wishes to Hardy.”

Jeff Hardy recently competed as part of Team SmackDown in the traditional 5 vs. 5 tag team bout at Survivor Series. Since then The Charismatic Enigma has competed on SmackDown teaming with McIntyre to face Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss.

Former WWE writer and Hollywood idol Freddie Prinze Jr. recently commented on his role in ensuring Jeff Hardy became WWE Champion and why he now believes Triple H was right in questioning Hardy’s mentality for the role.
