After two and a half months off television, Jeff Hardy will be returning to TNA at the Lockdown pay-per-view next month in Coral Gables, Florida.
His return was announced by MVP, whose on-screen role is a TNA investor, in a video which was taped for the #IMPACT365 initiative on YouTube. MVP is seen behind a desk talking on the phone asking for a confirmation, and then announcing that his good friend, and one time rival, Jeff Hardy will be coming back.
Hardy was last seen on the December 26 edition of Impact and was written out of television due to company’s tour in the United Kingdom. Due to legal issues, Hardy cannot travel to the UK and since a lot of tapings for Impact were held there it was easier to write him out rather than come up with something else. Last time Hardy was the TNA champion the company embarked on a UK tour and he was obviously left out of it, a decision which didn’t go down very well.
