Booker T recently talked about Jeff Hardy’s recent arrest. The WWE Hall of Famer claimed that although AEW didn’t put the keys or drink in his hand and make him drive, AEW has to bear some responsibility for Hardy’s recent arrest.

During a recent episode of The Hall of Fame With Booker T and Brad Gilmore Podcast, Booker T said, “I think AEW has some responsibility to bear because you go back and look at the compilation of death-defying dives Jeff Hardy has pulled off since arriving in AEW. I tell you right there that pain comes along with that.”

He further added, “When you got pain, a lot of times you will go and drink, take drugs to numb the pain. Did he try to do it? Probably not. But that’s what people with addiction do. So they do have some responsibility to bear here”.
