I'm sure everyone heard Rico yelling very loud about Jeff Hardy missing the top rope spot last night. I wonder if he'll get in trouble for audibly calling the spot that loud. This just shows how Jeff has been slacking off more an more with sloppy ring work and now missing of spots. That rail run he tried to do was horrible.

This also shows who the better Hardy is. And that's Version 1 baby! He took Steiner's suplex like a champ. And him pushing Nowinski into Steiner was beautiful.

At this point, give Jeff 6 months paid leave. Let him refocus and get healthy. Perhaps then, if they are actually pushing Matt at the time, he could return in order to destroy the concept of Mattitude. At this point, the only purpose to watching a Jeff Hardy match is whether this will be the night he breaks his neck.

One week he's ok, the next three, he's awful. He needs to take a break in the worst way before he hurts himself or someone else.

I don't think that Rico will be in any sort of dog house for yelling at Jeff. They'll tell him not to do it again, of course, but as long as it doesn't continue to be a problem, I don't see it being a major thing.

And despite missing that spot, Jeff had a hell of a match last night. Sure, Matt's been more entertaining lately, but let's give credit where credit is due.

I don't necessarily thing that the two rail spots he's blown lately have been his fault. The one on RAW he missed because he didn't want to step on the production guy's head, and it looked like something (someone?) tripped him up yesterday. If people don't move out of the way, he can't be blamed for bailing out on the spot.

After all, dumb ol' Hardy wasn't doing anything important that would keep him from the hitting the top rope spot...only flipping from an entranceway and landing on a fat Samoan lying on a table. No big deal. Rico did SO much more in the match. [/smarkiness]

Jeff may have missed the spot, but Rico was totally unjustified in yelling that so the whole arena could hear it. If anyone should be punished for this, it should be him.

Jeff was late in getting to the ropes to knock Rico off. He was perched there, waiting... Jeff was just late for his cue. Yeah, he probably shouldn't have yelled it, but it was the "heat of the match" type of thing. I certainly don't think it will lead to any further action.
While Rico's was the most audible, the ringside mics picked up a lot of chatter between the guys last night. I heard Angle clearly ask Rey, "are you okay" after his botched turnbuckle spot. Bubba was also giving some audible direction during a table spot.

I was there live last night, so I'm not too sure what happened in terms of the spot calling...can you explain in detail what this is about?

There were a few "we want Matt" chants during the table match (MSG has always been one of the smarkier crowds).

However, chant of the night goes to "Free Booker T" during the elimination chamber match (after Y2J came out but before Booker). I don't know if that made it on to TV or not.

Basically, Rico was perched on top for a moonsault, and was left looking like an idiot when Jeff didn't crotch him. So, he yelled "Come on Jeff, Goddamnit!". I'm pretty sure he thought the camera wasn't on him, tho.

I can't blame Rico for losing his temper, what with Jeff leaving him hanging up there. He was struggling to cover with that "Oh, oh, I'm losing my balance" arm-waving, but it seemed like he was up there forever before Jeff finally got there to shake the ropes (and at that, it was the rope on the opposite side of the ring from where Rico was standing).

Just want to weigh in on the Hardy boy thing

If u will recall from their tag matches Matt usually got no reaction at all..
fast forward to today

They have just given him a character that you all like

Some people play right into the hands they say they are too "smart" to fall into

Apparently, Rico got hurt in the match too. During the 3D, the table broke weird and he tore his arm from bicep to forearm and had to get 8 stitches to close 2 of the 3 gashes.

Apparently someone never paid attention to the AAAAH! legdrop and Twist of Fate...plus his Splash Mountain on Christian some ladder matches ago...

I've always thought that Matt had the better look/skill of the two. Jeff just doesn't look like he could really "go" with most of the roster.

Indeed. I've always been a bigger Matt fan than Jeff. Admitedly all my friends wanted to know what I was smoking... but who's laughing now? Ha ha ha! (Me, in case you couldn't tell. :)

Some people are "ahead of their time" but apparently Jeff is about 6 years behind. Given this scenario, he'd have fit in perfectly back when they used to tape 4 weeks of RAW in one night.

Rico most definetly shouldn't have lost his temper in the match, but it's not something that I feel he should get into any kind of serious trouble for. Maybe just a few words from Ross or Vince will suffice...

And about Jeff... I used to hate him, but now I'm a big fan. Why? Because he's... DIFFERENT!!! Plus, his whole 'live in the now' philosophy rules all kinds of ass. Not to mention his ass rules. *Winks* ... *Coughs*... ANYWAY, uh... yeah. I still think that he has talent, and it shouldn't be thrown away just because a few people don't like him, and because he's had some apparent personal problems. I'm sure it's not easy getting over steroid abuse... and I'm sure it's not easy putting up with hurting yourself day after day only to have people call you a talentless phony.

With exception to the Tough Enough crew, all the wrestlers in the WWE have worked their asses off to get where they are, and I think they deserve a hell of a lot more credit than they'll ever be given. Even if some hate fans (Bradshaw), even if some hold everyone else down (HHH), even if some have personal problems (Jeff Jeff), and even if some are a little out of shape (Giant), I think that we need to go a lot easier on them, because they hurt themselves for us, they bleed for us, and they shorten their lives for us.

Well, you have a point, to a point. People get into professional wrestling for money, love of the sport, fame, and fan approval. There may be other reasons I'm forgetting but anyway...they can seek the reward of fan approval but that means they also run the risk of having to deal with the disapproval of some fans.

See, the thing is, I actually like a healthy Jeff Hardy. But right now, neithe rhis head nor his body are in the game. No HHH jokes. He really does need to take a break to heal all his injuries and get his mindset back to being a great wrestler. I'm not badmouthing the guy, I'm just saying he's risking being totally crippled within a year unless he gets his shit together.
