WrestleMania 34 is barely a month away, and that means it is time for WWE to bring back injured as well as retired superstars to delight the fans. Every year, officials leave no stone unturned to ensure that the event is a huge success. The WWE Universe is also eager to see the returning superstars make their in-ring returns. Like every year, this WrestleMania would be no different.
Ryan Satin of the Pro Wrestling Sheet revealed that Jeff Hardy had received clearance from his surgeon to make his in-ring return. Hardy will have to wait for the WWE doctors to clear him for an official return to take place. He was last seen in a six-pack challenge for Intercontinental Championship on Raw in September when he suffered an injury during the match.
Jeff Hardy suffered a torn rotator cuff and labrum and underwent surgery on October 3. Hardy even posted a selfie after the successful completion of the surgery. He was expected to take about six months to recover, and that time is almost up. Hardy was also spotted in Birmingham, Alabama, where he was believed to have been evaluated by WWE doctors.
Matt Hardy has awakened his “Woken” persona and is currently in a feud with Bray Wyatt. Even though Matt will not wrestle at WrestleMania, he will be seen on the match card. On the last episode of RAW, Matt Hardy invited Bray Wyatt for “The Ultimate Deletion” match at Hardy Compound in Cameron, North Carolina.
With “The Ultimate Deletion” and WrestleMania 34 just around the corner, timing is perfect for Jeff to make a huge in-ring return. Even if the officials do not wish to risk Jeff in a more demanding match, the showdown at Hardy Compound will be the perfect opportunity to involve Jeff. Since the match would be pre-taped, officials could strictly monitor Jeff’s use to protect his recovering shoulder.
The Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt feud has not been appreciated and has received a lot of criticism from the WWE Universe. The addition of Brother Nero could help WWE bring some more interesting angles and make the rivalry a success. In either case, the return of Jeff Hardy before WrestleMania 34 seems imminent.
