In January 2003, Hardy briefly turned into a heel (villain) after he attacked Van Dam and Shawn Michaels .    It ended a month later when he saved Stacy Keibler from an attack by then-villain, Christian .  In February, he had a brief program with Michaels, which saw the two team up.   Then, in storyline, Hardy began dating Trish Stratus after saving her from Steven Richards and Victoria in March.  Hardy and Stratus had a brief on-screen relationship that saw the duo talking backstage and teaming together in matches. Hardy competed in his final match (his first departure) against The Rock and lost.   Hardy was released from WWE on April 22, 2003.   The reasons given for the release were Hardy's erratic behavior, drug use, refusal to go to rehab, deteriorating ring performance, as well as constant tardiness and no-showing events.   Hardy also cites "burn out" and the need for time off as reasons for leaving WWE.
