The current TNA champion Jeff Hardy will not be traveling to the United Kingdom for the Road to Lockdown tour and will miss four weeks worth of IMPACT as the company will be taping the television shows in Manchester and London.
In an official statement, TNA said that Hardy will not be making appearances on the other side of the pond due to an “injury” that he sustained at the hands of Aces & Eights during yesterday’s tapings of IMPACT that will air this coming Friday. In reality, Jeff Hardy cannot travel to the UK due to legal issues he has in the United States.
TNA also announced that Sting will be replacing Hardy on the tour and he will be appearing at all live events including the four television tapings that will be held. Hulk Hogan will also be part of the TV tapings.
