Jeff Hardy will be returning to WWE TV next week on WWE Backstage.
The announcement was made tonight during SmackDown. This would be the first time that Hardy has appeared on WWE programing since April of last year, when he and his brother Matt were laid out by Lars Sullivan after vacating the SmackDown Tag Team titles.
Hardy has since been recovering from reconstructive knee surgery. In that time, he been arrested twice, first being arrested on July 13 for public intoxication in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He was arrested again on driving while impaired charges in Moore County, North Carolina.
Jeff’s brother, Matt, is not expected to renew his contract with WWE when it expires on March 1. He was recently written out of television after being attacked by Randy Orton on Raw last week. Although Jeff and Matt signed at the same time, Jeff will remain with the company as his contract was frozen while he was out recovering.
