Prior to Jeff Hardy’s return from a shoulder injury earlier this year, there were rumors of him possibly introducing his other character known as ‘Brother Nero’ upon his return to join the ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy.
While this did not turn out to be the case and the returning Hardy was quickly moved to SmackDown Live instead, Matt recently talked about the current US Champion possibly joining him in future.
During a interview with The Philly Voice, One half of the current Raw Tag Team Champions discussed his brother possibly joining him in future, saying that while currently he is on SmackDown Live, they can utilize him as Brother Nero whenever it’s needed:
“I think Jeff can go to SmackDown and be amazing and be the ‘Charismatic Enigma’ and he can do everything he can do in that persona, and if we need to utilize him as Brother Nero, we can do that whenever.”
Jeff Hardy was unfortunate enough to suffer a shoulder injury in September 2017, just a few months after his surprise return to WWE during WrestleMania 33 earlier in the year.
While he was rehabbing and recovering in order to get back into the ring, his brother Matt, who also returned on the same night, become ‘Woken’.
After Matt Hardy started using the bizarre gimmick that first got over in Impact Wrestling in WWE, speculations begun that Jeff could also have a shift in his character and instead of returning as the Charismatic Enigma he could return as Brother Nero.
However, these rumors didn’t turn out to be true and while Jeff originally returned on the same brand as his brother, he was quickly shifted to SmackDown Live during the Superstar Shakeup earlier this year.
