As noted earlier this week, Hardy had announced on his Twitter account that he would be returning at Thursday's taping, writing, "Ok it's official...time to go back2work! I will be in Huntsville,AL this Thursday with ImpactWrestling!!!!"
Hardy last appeared for the organization on March 13 at Victory Road, competing in a TNA World Heavyweight Championship Match against Sting. The match, which was contested under No Disqualification rules, concluded in ninety seconds as company officials made an audible to cut it short after deeming that Hardy was in no condition to wrestle. He was sent home the following day.
He will be back in a Moore County, North Carolina courtroom on September 8th for charges stemming from a September 2009 arrest. He is charged with the following offenses:
Conspiracy to traffic opium
Trafficking in opium by possession
Possession with intent to sell or deliver a controlled substance
Felony possession of cocaine
Felony maintaining a vehicle, dwelling, or place for using controlled substances
Misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia
