The World Wide Entertainment (WWE) has released the 44-year-old American professional wrestler Jeff Hardy from his contract following an incident at a live event on December 4 in Texas.

The update about his release was first reported by Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com, who on Twitter wrote: "Fightful has learned WWE has released Jeff Hardy"

This comes less than a week after he was sent home following a "rough night" at a live event in Texas.

It all happened when Jeff Hardy had exited the ring during the six-man tag team match on Saturday in which he was teamed up alongside Drew McIntyre and Xavier Wood and were up-against Roman Reigns and The Usos. 

Hardy actually left through the crowd with the security following behind.

Though, he was also offered help by WWE in the form of rehab the three-time WWE champion, Hardy declined the offer which led to his release as a result.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com also wrote about Hardy's release on Twitter: "I've heard WWE offered Jeff Hardy help and rehab, and it was not accepted. Here's to hoping things get better for him."
