Before the shenanigans with the drug abuse, drug arrests, and real and fake DWI arrests, Jeff Hardy was an ink-free .. 16-year-old jobber to the stars getting his a*s kicked in a WWF ring. So let’s press the rewind button a bit and go back to May 1994.
Jeff lied to his age to the WWF but we know wrestlers were getting away with far more than that. There was no dubious wellness policy back then .. so it was free for all with cocaine, pills, steroids, and gods knows what else. And YouTube is your friend, go and watch his early WWF matches against Razor Ramon and The 123 Kid.
You could see even then that Jeff had a ring presence. He didn’t come off like a super green rookie. Also, a lot of us are aware of the f*cked up fact watching Jeff wrestle Scott Hall and Sean Waltman. All three of them allowed drugs to nearly destroy lives. And most of Jeff’s addiction f*ckery is just a Google search away with the assembly line of mug shots and that infamous high AF match against Sting.
But who knew back in 1994 that the 16-year-old lying about his age would become WWE Champion, while his two opponents never went beyond IC title and 2nd rate sidekick status.
