WWE RAW superstar Jeff Hardy will undergo surgery for a torn rotator cuff next week. According to WWE, first announced through their app alert, Jeff’s injury occurred during last Monday’s Six-Pack Challenge to determine the No. 1 contender for the WWE Intercontinental Championship, which Jason Jordan won. WWE Senior Ringside Physician Dr. Stephen Daquino confirmed the injury and its extent.
“Jeff is dealing with a rotator cuff tear right now. It’s a full thickness tear of his supraspinatus tendon and a couple of other areas in the shoulder. He’s going to go for evaluation and probably for surgery next week.”

Jeff said he thought his injury was a dislocated shoulder. His procedure is scheduled for October 3. He added:
“Once they get in there, they’ll figure out more about what they have to repair. But for sure, the rotator cuff has to be repaired, and then they’ll look at the labrum when they get in there.”
“It’s depressing. More than any time in a career, it’s those times that make you go, ‘Wow, I love professional wrestling.’ It sucks that I can’t be involved in [a] match or can’t get in there and do what I normally do because I’m injured, but I just have to get over that, stop worrying about it and look forward and push myself to get repaired and healed and come back better than every with a brand-new shoulder.”
