WWE announced on their official website tonight that WWE RAW superstar Jeff Hardy has suffered a torn rotator cuff and as a result, will require surgery to repair it.

Speaking to the website, WWE Senior Ringside Physician Dr. Stephen Daquino had the following to say, “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 noted in the article that he also tore his labrum and that he initially thought that he dislocated his shoulder during the match and that he will undergo surgery on Tuesday, October 3rd stating, “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 ever with a brand-new shoulder.”

Jeff also said that even while he may not be able to actively compete post-surgery, he will not rule out the possibility that he could be seen on television in a different capacity as he heals stating, “There’s a lot of crazy ideas. It inspires me to think a lot more about what I can do other than the extreme stunts and still be entertaining.”

Note from Wayne: Given that Hardy is dealing with a torn rotator cuff as well as potential trouble with his labrum, Jeff could be looking at anything from 4-6 months upwards that he will be out of action.
