WWE’s legendary superstar Jeff Hardy has tested positive for Covid-19.
The 43-year-old was forced to pull out of an appearance at recordBAR in Kansas City for a meet-and-greet event tonight.
That was taking place following the latest edition of Monday Night Raw.
Now the venue has revealed the Charismatic Enigma will no longer be there as he is isolating.
A Facebook post read: “We regret to inform you that the event with Jeff Hardy to take place on Monday July 26, 2021 at recordBar in Kansas City, MO will have to be postponed to a later date.
“Jeff Hardy just tested positive for covid this morning, and will have to quarantine for the next two weeks, and will not be participating in any live events for the next two weeks.
“For now, all tickets will be held to await a rescheduled date. Once the new date is announced, if you cannot attend the new date, please email [email protected] for a refund.
“You will receive another email from us when the new date is announced.”
An official comment from Hardy or WWE has yet to be made.
The positive result will come as a bitter blow to the former world champion – especially given the timing.

WWE, who have just returned to performing in front of fans again, went back to using his much-loved theme song No More Words last week.
He faced Karrion Kross on the NXT Champion’s main roster debut.
And the veteran used all of his experience to use the ropes to seal a sneaky pin to earn the victory.
That looked set to spark a rivalry between the duo – although those plans may now have to be put on ice for at least a fortnight.
