As we reported last week, despite TNA announcing at the last minute that Jeff Hardy would not be able to appear on the recent UK tour due to injury, the real reason is that Hardy was unable to travel to The UK due to his past drug record.
In an update to this story, The Wrestling Observer is reporting that TNA had hopes they could pull strings to get Hardy cleared to travel to The UK when they initially announced the tour, and when they found out a month or so away from the tour that he would be unable to attend, they continued to promote his name as a main event attraction.
As noted in live reports, Sting replaced Hardy on the tour at the last minute, despite Sting's previous TNA UK tour being billed as his last.
