– On Tuesday, Jeff Hardy underwent successful surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff.
According to WWE.com, the former Raw Tag Team Champion sustained the injury during a Six-Pack Challenge on Raw on Sept. 18 that was eventually won by Jason Jordan. However, according to Dave Meltzer, the injury actually occurred in July at the Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view during the 30-Minute WWE Iron Man Match against Cesaro and Sheamus.
While there is no official word on how long he will be out of action, it will likely be six to seven months. Erick Rowan and Shelton Benjamin both underwent torn rotator cuff surgery last year and were out of action for a similar amount of time. Benjamin underwent surgery in August 2016 and was medically cleared to compete at the end of March 2017. Rowan underwent surgery in early October 2016 and returned in early April 2017, two days after WrestleMania 33. Assuming Hardy has a similar recovery time, that would put his return in April or May 2018.
