WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair has had his say on the circumstances surrounding Jeff Hardy’s WWE exit and says the star was right to refuse to go to rehab.
Jeff Hardy was let go from his WWE contract on December 9th after displaying erratic behaviour at a live event and being sent home the following day. It was then reported that the former WWE Champion had refused the company’s offer to send him to rehab leading to his departure.
Matt Hardy has since commented on his brother’s decision and says he believes Jeff was right as he didn’t feel he needed that level of intervention. Jeff Hardy himself has been seen on a recent tour where he appears to be looking happy and healthy in pictures with fans.
Now speaking on his Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast, The Nature Boy Ric Flair explained why he thinks Jeff Hardy was right to refuse WWE’s offer:
Well, you know what, I could not agree more. I love Jeff, I love his wife Beth. Above all they have a great relationship. I have talked to them both. And I think without saying something Jeff just said to them ‘hey, I have been there, done that.'”
“The majority of these people, these counselors and facilities, they are former addicts themselves. So when they are talking to you, trying to make you understand what your issues are, they are recovering themselves. Does that make sense?”
