After the news of the 44-year-old-superstar’s incident, various fans posted some videos for Hardy during his arena entrance that depicted that the performer was not fully alright.

After reviewing 2 recent fan videos of the #JeffHardy incident. One could clearly see Hardy was having some sort of issue with his stomach/abdomen. I pray that he's ok and the issue is not anything too serious. #FeelbetterJeff 🙏 pic.twitter.com/ildeOvjob9

it’s pretty clear it was a physical problem and not related to Jeff’s past issues. i thought that when watching the video recorded by a fan. it’s pretty obvious that he’s hurting in some way, i don’t understand how people couldn’t tell. this looks nothing like the Sting match.

The absence of any confirmed news after Hardy’s incident led hundreds of fans to storm AEW Star Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy’s older blood brother and long-time tag team partner, Twitter and Twitch platforms asking for the younger Hardy’s health.

The AEW icon expressed: “I did speak to Jeff for a little bit today. He’s okay. He’s good. I think he’ll be fine. once again, this isn’t my business. If he wants to go into it with more detail, he’ll do it himself. Jeff is okay. He is at home and okay. It’s not my business or story to tell or explain. Besides that, it’s not my story to tell because it’s not my perspective. I love my brother and I want him to be okay and healthy.”
In the same context, the former WWE star Bubba Ray Duddley, one-half of the legendary tag team Duddley Boyz, said that he wishes that Jeff Hardy is ok, and he is trouble-free.
