Jeff Hardy signs contract with AEW, appears on Dynamite

The former WWE star did a run-in to help Matt Hardy, Sting and Darby Allin.

After a few months of speculation, Jeff Hardy is officially #AllElite.

The longtime WWE star, who was released in December, came out on Wednesday's AEW Dynamite to help make the save for his brother, Matt, Darby Allin and Sting as they were getting beaten down by the restructured AHFO led by Andrade El Idolo.

He entered to the classic Hardy Boyz theme which is not WWE owned.

Hardy was released on December 9th following a bizarre scene at a WWE house show where he left through the crowd during a six-man tag team match. He was taken off the road and reportedly turned down help and rehab from WWE.

During a February 23rd meet and greet, Hardy told a reporter he was going to AEW but later downplayed it on Twitter. His WWE non-compete clause expired Wednesday and he turned down a February offer to return that would have included a Hall of Fame induction.

The 44-year-old's latest WWE run went from 2017 through his December release. 

He and Matt announced an indie tour that begins this Saturday in Webster, Massachusetts.
