Honestly, I think we're about to see the last of Matt Hardy on WWE television. I think in about 90 days we'll see him with Jeff in TNA.

Thoughts?

To follow up on the "Was he or wasn't he" reports that Matt Hardy was sent home from WWE's latest European tour, WWE has confirmed to Newsday.com that Hardy was in fact pulled from two recent live events.
After news broke that Hardy's behavior and mental state were alarming WWE officials to the point where he was not allowed to perform on scheduled shows, Hardy posted yet another cooky video online saying he was fine. Hardy argued that he was recording the video from his hotel room in Great Britain - so how could he have been 'sent home' from the tour?

In any event, WWE has now confirmed that Hardy was sent home, without elaborating as to why.
Matt Hardy is not backstage at today's SmackDown television taping in Detroit, Michigan. He was sent home by World Wrestling Entertainment officials after an incident backstage during Saturday's Smackdowns live event in Minehead, England.

Regarding the possibility of WWE cutting ties with Hardy altogether, he is "on very thin ice," according to a report on www.f4wonline.com.

It is said that Hardy's saving grace from termination was WWE's fear of a Hardy Boys revival in rival promotion TNA Wrestling, but after Saturday's backstage incident weekend and subsequent video blog, the feeling is that they don't care much about keeping him under their auspices anymore.
Despite Hardy's claim that he wasn't taken off the road, a company spokesman confirmed the story to Newsday today.

Even if he did join TNA and teamed up with his brother Jeff to reform The Hardy Boyz, I don't believe it would hurt the WWE all that much. With that said I really hope he gets terminated for this behavior, obviously by his recent comments it seems like he really doesn't really care about being an employee with this company anymore, and he's taking all the jabs he can.

I wouldn't mind one bit if he did get fired by the WWE, I've never been a fan and he's getting worse.

I really care less about Matt Hardy now. I have already made it clear that he is a 'has been' and all he does is cry about it. He is so out of shape and it is nobody's fault except for his. Matt Hardy knew there was something wrong with his body over a year ago but yet refused to get treatment because he thought that he was the shit. He's just crap stain in a little kids underwear now.

I remember a time where Matt Hardy, MVP, Chris Benoit, Finlay and Booker T were having sick matches each and every week on Smackdown...those were the days.

Hardy is a shell of his former self though. His heel turn FLOPPED. They believed in him...he was an excellent US Champ and went over Jeff Hardy at Wrestlemania. What happened? I really want to know!

Hardy's a strange guy that's had a tough year, I'm not giving up on him yet. I think TNA would be a more positive place for him, and I do think a Hardy Boyz revival would help the company, which already beats the WWE in tag wrestling by a mile.

I agree though, his heel turn against Jeff was amazing...creative made a huge mistake in turning him face again, and they didn't know how to handle him after the feud...he was doing random tag matches with Regal on RAW.

Haha the second half, the impression of Matt's videos, is SPOT ON and hilarious. But man, the first half Paul is just an asshole haha...doesn't he realize he might have to work with the guy again in the future? Maybe this is his way of getting people talking. That guy deserves a job in one of the big two, that is beyond the shadow of a doubt.

I noticed his charisma towards the later half of his teaming with Kendrick, and a little after. Plus during the McMahon 'whodunit' stories, he was great always grinning in the background lmao. Give the man a job. Where's the hurlihy boy and Adam Sandler?

I dont think he ever wants to work with Matt in the future haha...

Apparently they've had a beef with each other for quite some time....lots of bad blood. Had something to do with the Ashley Massaro storyline a few years ago apparently. It's always a girls fault, isn't it? Haha.

There's a word for Matt Hardy...DENIAL! He clearly is thinking he doesn't have a problem. He's pretty much ruined his last chance in the company, I mean there might be a glimmer of hope for the man, but that's really a stretch right now.

His career with WWE is pretty much over, unless he snaps out of it and realizes he has a problem and deals with it. I agree his heel turn against Jeff was great, but the writer pretty much suck right now, so as for that their to blame. But for the rest it's all Matt, the man needs to just snap out of it...I just hope it's not too late.
