Jeff Hardy’s legal issues appear to be no closer to being resolved after a pre-trial hearing was pushed back.

The hearing had been set to take place on October 19th, however it has now been rearranged at the behest of Hardy’s attorney and will be held on November 17th.

According to court documents, the move comes after Hardy’s attorney “recently provided extensive mitigation materials” to the prosecution. This meant that “the parties require additional time to negotiate a potential pretrial resolution.”

Jeff Hardy Was Arrested On June 13th.

The AEW star was pulled over and arrested by Highway Patrol Officers after the vehicle he was driving had been “swerving” and “running off the road.”

After being pulled over, Hardy was arrested and according to Volusia County jail records, was charged with Driving While License Cancelled/Suspended/Revoked, Violation of Restrictions Placed on Drivers License, and DUI Alcohol/Drugs Third Offense within 10 Years.

Following the incident the former World Champion was suspended by AEW without pay, and entered a rehabilitation program in an effort to banish his well-documented demons. Hardy had been due to undergo a brain scan after suffering a head injury during his match at Double or Nothing.

Matt Hardy recently offered a positive update on his brother’s condition, commenting that he’s making progress.

“He seems to be doing really well,” Matt said. “The conversations I’ve had with him have been really, really good, and the most important barometer, I think, of all these things, is that his wife Beth is super happy with his progress and where he’s at in life, and I think that’s probably most important.”

It was recently reported that Jeff Hardy isn’t expected to return to AEW until his legal issues are resolved and he had proven he can maintain his sobriety.

Jeff Hardy hasn’t wrestled since teaming with his brother to defeat the Young Bucks at AEW Double or Nothing on May 29th.
