Former WWE super star Jeff Hardy took to his official Twitter handle on Wednesday and revealed his future plans after getting formally released from his contract with WWE. The wrestling legend was released by the wrestling company less than a week after he was allegedly sent back home following a rough night during a live event by WWE in Texas. However, Hardy received support from the wrestling world as the events unfolded and he revealed he will go on a meet and greet tour in the coming month.
His tour will start with the first meet and greet on December 16 at The Miramar Theatre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin before Hardy will travel to Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, and North Dakota, while the tour ends on January 16 at the Bigs Sports in Sioux Falls, in the state of South Dakota. Meanwhile, the fans of the wrestling legend were surprised to see him planning the tour soon enough after leaving WWE. At the same time, few fans defended Hardy regarding his release by saying WWE just assumed Hardy needed rehab, and seems to be healthy enough to go on a tour.

Even if he had a non compete, the non compete is for wrestling. Also, if Jeff didn't need rehab and WWE just assumed he did, then he is healthy enough to do this.— BarkerVol (@allvol48) December 15, 2021
