Reginald a.k.a. Reggie is the 24/7 Champion. Rather than being unstoppable, he’s been uncatchable. WWE has come to a point where superstars are chasing Reginald from the locker room to the arena, and where not. One superstar who chased him on WWE Raw: September 6th, 2021 was Jeff Hardy.

Maybe WWE believed the fans would see the funny side of the segment, but it definitely did not work out that way.

Even Shelton Benjamin chased Reginald from backstage to the ring. Fans have expressed their concern about Benjamin as well, claiming that neither Hardy nor Benjamin deserve to be booked in comical segments that are a disgrace to their pro-wrestling careers.

Is this the end for Jeff Hardy?

Usually when WWE inserts superstars who have high-end potential in such segments, it shows that time is up.

Prior to this segment, Hardy was in a brief storyline with Karrion Kross. In fact, Hardy was the one against whom Karrion Kross made his main roster debut. Even though Hardy defeated Kross, the debut against Hardy helped put Kross on the map.

Unfortunately, Hardy tested positive for COVID-19 and was out for three weeks. When he returned, Kross got the best of him and defeated Hardy. Now, even though the bout ended, this feud was an important one for Karrion Kross and Hardy.

Now, it seems that WWE is booking Hardy in segments that don’t actually match up to what he is capable of. If the company continues to do this, it could be the end of him at WWE.
