Hardy had been absent from AEW since June 2022, when he was arrested for DUI in Volusia County, Florida. Hardy was suspended by AEW indefinitely, and he was permitted to return upon completing treatment and maintaining his sobriety. The DUI case was closed in February 2023. Matt Hardy was recently on record saying that he was optimistic that his brother would be back on AEW programming in the next 6-8 weeks.
Matt Hardy has consistently praised his brother for working to improve himself during his time away.
