As noted earlier this weekend, TNA wrestler Jeff Hardy took what appeared to be a very scary fall off the top of a steel cage, where he crashed and burned, allegedly smashing his head on the ring steps below. As the story goes, Hardy was knocked out as a result of the fall, and remained unconscious backstage after the match.
According to a report by PWInsider.com, Hardy’s fall was not an accident and was actually planned out in advance as part of a storyline.
TNA is going to use the Hardy injury angle based off of that spot as a way of explaining why he will not be traveling to the upcoming TNA U.K. tour, as he is legally not allowed to travel to the country due to a 2009 drug conviction.
TNA is planning on making the announcement after the Lockdown show airs that Hardy is injured as a way to explain why he missed several weeks of Impact Wrestling, as those shows will be taped in the United Kingdom, where Hardy is not allowed.
