News on Kane and Jeff Hardy
– PWInsider reports that Kane is expected to be a part of the 2020 Royal Rumble and will be in Houston for the event. He has not been announced for the match yet, but appeared on Smackdown this past Friday. He cut a promo putting over the Rumble match and his previous accomplishments in it. Kane holds the record for most Rumble match appearances (19) and the most cumulative eliminations over his career (44).
– PWInsider also reports that Jeff Hardy is set to appear in Moore County Court in North Carolina on April 6, the day after Wrestlemania. The court appearance is related to his October 2019 arrest for driving while impaired.
Hardy was arrested on October 3 after police got a tip about a reckless driver around 8:40 PM. They found his car in front of a liquor store and he came out with a case of beer. After following the car for a bit, they stopped him for “weaving badly in his lane.” Hardy had “what seemed to be dried blood on his nose”, and told police that he and his wife “got into a fight.” He admitted to two shots of vodka and being impaired. He failed a field sobriety test and was “uncooperative when asked for a breathalyzer or blood sample.” A judge agreed to the search warrant and police got their blood sample. His driver’s license has since been revoked.
Hardy has been away from WWE as he recovers from a leg injury. WWE helped him after his arrest and he’s reportedly ‘working hard’ to focus on his personal health.
