According to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, a trooper discovered Hardy after his 2009 Corvette ran off the road and struck a tree. Hardy was by himself at the time and did not suffer any injuries.

The trooper observed signs of impairment and arrested Hardy. He was charged with DWI and the trooper found no other contraband in the vehicle. Hardy submitted to a blood test, the results are pending.

I think Matt's fucked his own life up the most, honestly. He and Jeff aren't exactly the same. Jeff is a stoner who puts others at risk by being intoxicated in the ring. Matt is an attention whore who puts others at risk by being intoxicated behind the wheel, tazing his girlfriend and being an all-out lying douchebag.

I honestly feel Jeff has it more together than Matt, because Matt's shit seems to stem from inner darkness and being fucked up on a mental level. Jeff just REALLY likes to get high, make shitty art and make shitty music.

Druggie and stoner are one in the same to me, tbh. "Substance abuser." Either way I wouldn't really care if he smoked or did coke or shot heroine from a rhino's tusk if he wouldn't show up to work drugged out of his mind. By which I mean if he did them on extended breaks from wrestling, not while he's an active competitor.

He should never wrestle again, really. But there are enough slimy promoters out there who will use him.

Atleast Jeff won a TNA Championship, WWE Championship, and World Heavyweight Championship. He had his opportunity as a Main Eventer.

He has a tattoo of roots that starts on his head, behind his ear, and finishes at his hand. He also has a few other signature designed tattoos, one of which, a dragon, he hid from his father. It was also the first tattoo he got in 1998. He later got tattoos of the Chinese symbols for "Peace" and "Health",...

lol "Health"

Matt Hardy is disturbed, that it's not even funny.

If I had to pick to be one of them, I'd rather be Jeff.

From PWInsider:

In the wake of his arrest this afternoon for DWI, Matt Hardy has been released by TNA.

In a statement made to TMZ.com, an unnamed TNA Spokesperson commented, "TNA today released Impact Wrestling star Matt Hardy from its roster. Hardy was already under suspension from the company."

According to sources this evening, the original plan had been for Matt and Jeff Hardy to return to TNA storylines around Bound for Glory this October. Obviously, that is out the window.

Hardy had been sent home several weeks back, with the official reason being excessive lateness to events, although it was believed that was a cover story and the real suspension was due to a video Hardy posted online that featured an inebriated Jeff Hardy and both Hardys using a Tazer on Matt's girlfriend, Lucha Libre USA's Reby Sky.

Hardy joined TNA earlier this year after being released by WWE in the wake of a series of incidents that caused him to be sent home from a company tour of Europe.

On August 19th, Hardy wrote on his Twitter account, "It's time for me to get back to a healthy, happy place, the transformation his now started for me, for us-(New Chapter Will begin new)"

Honestly, I feel kind of feel sorry for Matt. I remember in the "ARE WE THERE YET?" WWE stories of the road book, there was an exert in the book where Matt was like "I was sick all week long, but when Lita paid me a surprise visit that night in North Carolina, from then on there, I knew me and Lita were destined to be together."

Plus his former best friend banged his girl and as a result got the main event push

Conclusion: Nice guys do finish last. He's been through his share of shit, but he was so naive.

TNA should definitely release Matt Hardy. But what about Jeff? It'd be a good image-move to get rid of both, I think. If you show up to work absolutely fucked and put your co-workers at risk, that's grounds for dismissal, in my book. Let them go do indy shows as "The Hardys" and be the sad parodies of what they used to be.

I've got be honest -- I've got no clue how Matt Hardy does it. Yeah, I suppose he would have money and all that. But so do a lot of people in the wrestling industry. And some of them have jobs, are in shape, don't act like teenagers and know not to drink-drive and taze women.

I probably wouldn't fuck Reby Sky just because of her obvious insanity. And that makes me sick.

Is it wrong that I felt that TNA would actually do the right thing and release Jeff, maybe silently? Here we are, maybe six months after he fucks over a live Pay Per View main event because of his problems, and he's in their plans going into their biggest PPV of the year.

He should have been fired, and at the very least, not been rehired until he was PROVEN clean over a few years. I understand that he's a draw, but no draw is worth the shit they put up with from him.

And Matt just isn't a draw, so hiring him made no sense in the first place.

Jeff Hardy/Sting debacle is TNA's Halloween Havoc 98 suicide. Years later, when WWE owns TNA's library and does the promotion equivalent of "The Self Destruction of The Ultimate Warrior" on TNA, that will be a cut where about 6 guys just shake their head in disapproval.

08-20-2011, 11:25 PM
Look, I can understand the hiring of Matt. It didn't excite me, as it just didn't fit TNA's plans early this year. Jeff Hardy was playing a mega-heel, and it made no sense for Matt to come in and hate his brother -- or if he did, then it wouldn't have made sense to boot out Anderson and Morgan from top face spots in place of Matt.

TNA could have given Hardy time to get into shape (which probably wouldn't have happened), and followed the Jeff Hardy stuff through to its ends, and then perhaps have Matt come and "fight for Jeff's soul," or whatever. Matt was just a vanity hiring, though, and really did nothing to help the company, but cost them some money and took up a valuable roster spot.

It's really sad to see what has happened to this Carolina/OMEGA group of friends. Both of the Hardys have completely lost themselves. Jeff with his drug problems and Matt has just gone insane. Mind you, unless I misread the article, it hasn't been 100% proven that Matt was drunk. The officer 'observed signs of impairment' which most likely meant he was drunk, but could always be possible maybe he was just shook up from the crash and not thinking straight.

He's still crazy though.

And Shane Helms seems to have drifted into his own reality too. He's turned into nothing more than a bitter shell of his old self.

The only guy from this group of friends still doing well for himself is Shannon Moore. Who'd have thunk it?

This really does make me sad. I was such a huge Jeff Hardy mark when he came back for his run a few years back and finally won the WWE Title. He was having amazing matches against everyone: Morrison, Umaga, Orton, Triple H, his brother. He was on the road to becoming a true main event superstar, and it's like it didn't mean anything to him.

Matt was probably the more talented of the two brothers, and maybe it was his major mistake to leave the WWE, because it seems like he's gone nowhere but downhill since then. Matt could've potentially been a World Heavyweight Champion some day - with the right gimmick, if he got back into top physical condition. He has all of the skills, on the mic, in the ring - if Christian can do it, Matt Hardy could've done it. The only thing that's stopped him is Matt Hardy.

False. Matt Hardy's "Version 1" gimmick proved that he DOES have skills on the mic, given the proper gimmick to channel his personality through. I mean, the same could be said for anyone, I suppose. Some could argue that Austin didn't have mic skills until he found "Stone Cold", or that The Rock didn't have them until he found "The Corporate Champ."

But seriously, boiling the Hardys' careers down to only being good in TLC-related matches is a really linear and close-minded way of looking at things. It completely ignores all of the amazing non-gimmick matches that they had, singles or tag team.

Angle is/was a much bigger fuck up than Hardy in regards to drugs, a danger to himself, being a mess and so forth, even more so than Jeff Hardy when it came to drugs as he was putting his health/life at risk with pain pills and the like and would apparently need help putting his boots on/was released from a high-paying WWE spot as opposed to Jeff who likes getting high a bit too much. Difference is Angle doesn't put himself out there/make himself an "easy target" for everybody to be able to take shots at.

Comparing Angle to Jeff, as far as I know Angle never screwed up a TNA main event because of his problems; also as far as I know Angle's problems never really impacted the TNA product at all. Comparing him to Matt, Angle's issue is a case of a professional athlete who had a few DUIs and some drug issues in the past. That's "dog bites man." A professional athlete whose brother has already made bad publicity for the company for substance-abuse-related incidents going on to get a DUI after making a drunken spectacle of himself all over the internet after tasering his girlfriend and getting suspended by said company, that is "man bites dog."

Well he wasn't, he was fired for this DUI otherwise he'd still be there but that wasn't the point of my post.

If Matt Hardy had done nothing during his time in TNA except get a DUI, he'd still have a job today. He was fired while under suspension for a string of incidents that have embarrassed the company he works for and this was just the last straw. You said there was a double standard between how Angle's situation was handled vs how Hardy's was handled. There is no double standard in place because the incidents occurred under entirely different circumstances. To put it another way, firing someone who is under suspension for behavior X is not contradictory to not firing someone for behavior X who is not under suspension.

In regards to your first part, TNA screwed their own main event by sending Jeff out in the first place. He was deeply unprofessional to be in that "condition" (and for the sake of the devil's advocate, he was far from the first to do it) but for TNA to let him go out on PPV (for a main event of all things) anyway is "unforgivable", I know piece of shit cowboy promoters that are pathetic excuses for human beings that wouldn't do something that ridiculous. And please, Angle's problems/drug use aren't somehow "better"/"more forgivable" (not that it, like anybody else in wrestling, should have fuck all to do with the opinions/judgement of fans that post on the internet anyway) than Hardy's, like I said, the only difference is he doesn't record himself and post the videos online.

I didn't say anything about Jeff's in ring ability outside of TLC matches. And I didn't say matt hardy wasn't any good outside of TLC. Just not main event level. He's upper midcard at most, imo.

I think TNA has a certain respect for the fact that jeff can at least fuck up and keep his mouth shut.

If they really wanted to keep him, I'm pretty they would've done anything in their power to keep him. But I'm guessing he probably irritated alot of people backstage, and this incident is just the convenient exit strategy they needed to finally let him go. People were probably turned off by Matt's "vibe". Seems like a real downer that was just kept around out of sympathy or because of Jeff's pull (if he even had any)

They probably believed in "second chances", and that he was deserving of that chance to revitalize his career after picking him up from THE E, but since he didn't really make a noteworthy splash, they probably just given up on him as a performer and as a person

Soooooooo....Matt gets a DWI and has been fired...and yet Jeff is still employed...

It is sad I see the logic in this.

You can cut and run from the ugly duckling, but why sacrifice the golden goose? No matter how much crack he smokes, he's still going to lay golden eggs. Unless Jeff actually KILLS someone (no Benoit jokes, I'm serious), he will always get the pass because he is a licence to print merch money.

Hell, look how many chances he got in the WWE, and they made a complete main event angle out of it.

Yes, Matt is a grade-A bag of severed dicks. Yes, he's a walking cheeseburger consumption joke. Yes, he isn't half as good in the ring as he used to be, or about a fourth as good as he thinks he is... but growing up as a slightly embittered sibling, I can see it isn't really fair for him to get the axe simply because he's not Jeff.

But that will always be the logical thing to do. From a business standpoint, Jeff sells glowsticks and wristbands and shirts ad infinitum to little girls who want the hair-dying bad boy to take their virginity. Matt brings nothing to the table except the possiblity of a Hardy Boyz reunion.

Matt Hardy has posted the latest video to his YouTube channel and it really does not seem like Matt is in a good place right now.

Matt claims to have suffered "two unbearable tragedies" recently

Matt says he saved a school bus full of kids and takes us on a tour of his trashed home, where he says inanimate objects are looking at him and laughing at him.

Matt ends the video by saying, "I'm afraid of what's going to happen next."

Troubled wrestling star Matt Hardy (http://www.tmz.com/person/matt-hardy/)was rushed to an emergency room in North Carolina this morning after falling down in his home ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Matt tell us ... the ex-TNA star hadn't been feeling well ... but it's unclear as to what caused Matt to fall down.

So far, the extent of his injuries are unknown -- but a family member tells us Hardy is expected to be released from the hospital tomorrow.

It's been a rough month for Hardy -- as TMZ first reported, he was arrested on suspicion (http://www.tmz.com/2011/08/20/matt-hardy-arrested-dwi-north-carolina-tna-wwe/#.TlVRpl1CKYQ) of DWI last weekend and was subsequently fired from his gig at TNA wrestling.

They can ignore all of their cheating and play to the crowd as total faces while they're getting booed out of the building. BOOK IT.

Why not reunite John Morrison and Joey Mercury?

They can be called simply "Morrison & Mercury" and just be heels. I personally think Morrison isn't as good at being a face as he was at being a heel, so to me, I think him being a heel would work better.

But still thinking about it, he could always remain as a face and bring back Mercury to challenge The Miz & R-Truth for the Tag Team Championships if they remain as an alliance and win the titles.
