Former WWE head writer Vince Russo recently advised AEW star Jeff Hardy to call it a day on his lengthy wrestling career.The 44-year-old has become the talk of the wrestling world since he was arrested for multiple traffic violations last week. Hardy was primarily charged with felony DUI and misdemeanor driving with a suspended license. This marked The Charismatic Enigma’s third brush with the law in the last ten years.
Though the veteran was able to bond out of prison after paying a $3,500 surety bond, he faced severe ramifications from AEW President Tony Khan. He suspended Jeff Hardy without pay from the company. Mr. Khan affirmed that the star would only be able to return upon completing substance abuse treatment and maintaining his sobriety.Speaking on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Writing with Russo, the former head writer bluntly stated that The Enigmatic Soul should retire from professional wrestling. Russo added that Jeff Hardy’s well-being and his family should be his top priority now rather than his career:
“Me personally, yes On if Jeff Hardy should retire It all goes back to family. Bro, you have a family that depends on you. There’s nothing else more important in the world, Chris, you know, as a man, as a father, as a husband, you know, nothing is more important. Wrestling is not more important, that high is not more important, that adrenaline rush is not important. Nothing, nothing should supersede your family. Nothing, if you are a man, nothing should supersede your family ,” Russo said
