    Foundation Player - Jeff Hardy

    I guess I never really paid much mind to this but doing a little research on TNA pay per views I couldn't help but notice how much of a foundation player Jeff Hardy was to the company. During 2004-2005 he was a major player in TNA and it makes me wonder if it might have been TNA taking Hardy more seriously as a singles competitor that made WWE view him differently when he returned to the company.

    Of course WWE didn't elevate him all the way up right away but he got there through being super over. But it's really changed my view of Jeff Hardy in TNA. Up until now, I suppose I have seen it as just a matter of time until he's back in WWE and maybe that will be so one day but now I consider him to be much more TNA loyal. Just a matter of information altering perspective I guess.

    if the money's enough, then i bet he'd go

    although he says he loves the lack of backstage politics and the more interpersonal "boss/employee" relationship in TNA, and who's to argue with that

    but to quote a familiar legend
    "Everybody's got a price"

    if the price is right, that "loyalty" will vanish

    -Personally-
    i feel that loyalty is made up of promotion of Hardys horrible music and the lack of restraint on drug usage

    also, if the culmination during of the victory road incident told us anything, TNA has no loyalty for him
    not preventing him from destroying himself,
    Allowing him to overdo dangerous "spots" despite his body's bad condition,
    Sending him out to perform, fucked out of his brain,
    then after suspending him, they let their competitors pay for rehab and not themselves

    it seems to TNA, Hardy is just an orange
    once the squeeze out all the juice, they'll leave behind the leftovers as someone else's cleanup

    just my opinion though

    That's an interesting - and definitely plausible - view. I, myself, question just how healthy the backstage environment and culture is in TNA. But then, I really don't know and these things often don't become evident until they pan out in the long term. So I guess we'll see.

    perhaps the easy going management style of TNA is their wrong doing

    whether its WWE or TNA, there may be no right way of operating a wrestling business that wwon't result in the self destruction of talent and overall corruption

    As a Hardy Fan, I never had problem with him being World Heavy Weight Champion esp when he's their best merch seller...only thing for me is that it has to come at the expense of a great push for AA...but, now I'm happy for AA as well..


    Hardy is still super over and I feel he'll continue in TNA as that schedule suits him and his current life style..

    Jeff Hardy in WWE also can sell a lot n create more revenue for them...so we may never know, WWE can offer him a lighter contract for teh revenue he can create..

    So NEVER SAY NEVER!!

    I too like Jeff but I was pissed when TNA picked him over Austin Aries. Jeff's history with TNA has always been up & down. He feuded with Jarrett, Monty Brown & Abyss in his first run in the company but started no-showing at shows or if he showed up he'd be totally baked so they fired him, quietly. Then he came back and started the same crap all over again but this time the law was on his ass, that's why he can't travel over sea's with the rest of the company. I honestly think he should have dropped the belt at the start of the international tour, they could have played up the "injury" from Aces & 8's.
