With just weeks left until the 2021 Royal Rumble, participants continue to declare their entry into the titular match. Now, just ahead of Raw, Jeff Hardy has become the latest to enter the match.
WWE released a video on Twitter earlier today of Hardy declaring for the match. He said that he had done a lot in his WWE career but one thing he hasn’t done but wants to do is with the Royal Rumble. Here is the video:

Hardy has been teaming with Riddle on Raw as of late. The duo have been involved with The Hurt Business with Riddle reportedly being in line for a United States Championship match.
Since returning to WWE in 2017, Hardy has only competed in the Rumble match one time in 2019. Every other year he has been injured at the time of the match.
Surprisingly, despite having been wrestling with WWE since 1993, Hardy has only competed in six Rumble matches. Due to time away from WWE, injuries, and competing in other matches on the respective cards, Hardy has only competed in two Rumble matches in the last 15 years in 2007 and 2019.
