We here at eWrestlingNews are saddened to learn of the passing of Matt and Jeff Hardy’s father, Gilbert Hardy. Their father reportedly passed away a few days ago. Jeff Hardy was removed from the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on Friday’s SmackDown due to his passing.
No further details have been released in regards to his passing at this time. Matt Hardy took to Twitter about an hour ago, confirming the news.
Thanks for all the kindness & love today. We greatly appreciate it.
I love you, Dad. Thanks for making so many sacrifices to give myself & Jeff a fair chance at life. We were blessed to have you for so many years. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/55k2t2FEHc
