Hardy Fans In Turmoil, WWE Suspension Changes, More

Ryan Clark

As reported earlier, Jeff Hardy was suspended for 30 days for a company policy violation. Before, he would have simply been docked his pay and kept appearing on television, but that’s not the case anymore as there has been a change to the way WWE deals with suspensions. Now if you get suspended, you get completely taken off of television and pay-per-views, not to mention that WWE changes booking plans. That was the original idea until McMahon got tired of having to change plans on the fly because of suspensions. Last summer, a lot of The Great American Bash PPV had to be redone at the last minute because several wrestlers were unable to compete due to elevated enzymes. McMahon then decided that people would be docked in pay and kept off of house shows, but they would continue to work their programs on TV. Recent publicity in the wake of the Benoit tragedy has made the policy rethought out because it could be an embarrassment to the company with the possibility of Congress hearings.

There seems to be a lot of turmoil going on at a fansite of Jeff Hardy called JeffNeroHardy.com. The owners of that site also run the reality TV show site of Jeff Hardy, so presumably the same thing is going on at that site as well. Here is what a former member of the site had to say in regards to how the owners of the site are reacting to people calling them out on saying that Jeff is taking time off because he’s hurt, and not because he is suspended. The owner of the site said on Jeff’s behalf that he was taking time off to heal his injuries. In actuality, Jeff has been suspended for 30 days for a company policy violation: “Just an update on JeffNeroHardy.com from a member, soon to be former member of their “Xtreme Board.” Moderators are refusing to acknowledge Jeff’s suspension despite the overwhelming evidence against them. They have even begun banning members of the board for posting rumors and discussion threads about Hardy’s suspension, claiming them to be lies. Many of the boards most respected and active members have left the board because they no longer want to deal with the moderators jumping down their throats for posting the truth.” – TRCWrestler (Formerly Known As Whisp from the XB)

When you absolutely know what the real truth is and print a misleading false rumor on his official ‘FAN SITE’, fans have a reason to be ticked off. And then to ignore the loyal users and not even address the false rumor? Hmm.
