Excuse me if this comes out wrong, I've never opened a new thread. I just thought after reading this story that the WWE got really lucky in not signing Jeff. These sound like really serious charges that could have him in the slammer for a long period of time.

No, they're still funny.

At least the article was accurate with his championship resume.

I doubt it was really for trafficking though, that's just a wrestler's amount of stuff.

Man, the "E" taking the belt off him couldn't have been timed any better. This could have been a major PR nightmare for them. One would have to think this time, Jeff's really not coming back.

That's what I hope. I mean, that's a LOT he had in his possession, but what does it say about wrestling that he might have enough just for his own use to trigger trafficking charges?

I agree, this seems more like his personal stash.

According to this, the sheriff's report listed the street value of what they found at a mere $2500. That certainly doesn't sound much like a drug trafficker's stash to me, but that's the war on drugs for you. Or there's more to this we don't know yet.

Listening to Dave's update, it sounds like this might have been something that had been in the works for a while.

I don't know if Vince can play the "he doesn't work for us right now" card if they were investigating while he was still in the company AND champion.

From watching way too much SVU, CI, NCIS, and CSI, he had to get his stash from someone. One of his dealers could have been busted and named names to cut a deal. Maybe one or more persons were "wired" and they got Jeff on tape buying and/or using.

It's going to be the felony possession of cocaine that will be his downfall.
Either Jeff decided that since he's on vacation, plenty of time to go back into the drug culture, or there is enough room to drive the company's production vans through the drug policy.

I'm not so sure about that. We are talking residue here; the only reason it's a felony charge is because North Carolina is one of the states that still don't treat residue as a misdemeanor (doesn't something like 90% of our money have cocaine residue on it?). How hard they come down on him for that will probably depend more on the judge than the mere fact that it's a felony charge. And to play devil's advocate, residue in his home doesn't mean he was the one using it, or that if he did use it, that it was within the time frame of a drug test.

As far as the pills and anabolics go, I'm curious to see if he had a prescription for them. Given that the WWE has been willing to suspend him in the past, and just suspended Rey, I find it unlikely he was getting away with taking them without a prescription to back it up.

I think even the speculation that he's back to being a pill popping party animal may be a little premature. He had 262 Vicodin pills and 180 Soma pills... if we assume a prescription for 3 pills per day, that's a 3 month supply of Vicodin and a 2 month supply of Somas. That doesn't seem that outlandish to me; hell, I got a 2 month supply of painkillers just for a minor finger surgery (in fact, they may even still be in my medicine cabinet, because I never used them). So if he was actually popping them like candies, then that's one pathetic stockpile.

It's kind of sad to think that this is probably the reason he decided to let it all hang out in the ladder match before his time off. Obviously the guy has a problem, but his body is also in a tremendous amount of pain as well. It's the dark underbelly of the crazy matches we all remember and love.

I realize that Jeff screwed up again, and that everyone saw it coming a mile away, but it still kind of bothers me that the first thing going through the minds of a lot of people over the internet is how this is going to be a huge boost for Punk's career.

I get the feeling that this could be the end of the road for Jeff, and it seems like he and Kurt Angle are in a race to see who can throw their life down the shitter the fastest.

Yeah, I was thinking personal supply too, and for comparison sake I Googled around for what happened with Lex Lugar back in '03. When Liz passed away, the police found Lugar's stash:

    Originally posted by the Police report
    531 Hydrocodone Bitartrate pills (a narcotic)
    361 Carisoprodol tablets (muscle relaxant/sedative)
    210 Dianabol tablets (anabolic steroid)
    495 Oxyflux tablets (weight-loss/to help look 'cut')
    98 Xanax pills (treats anxiety/acts as sedative)
    6 Boxes of Saizen 5mg (growth hormone)
    1 Bottle of Testosterone CYP 200mg
    1 Bottle of Laurabolin 50ml
    2 Bottles of Testosterona 200
    7 Bottles of Nandrolona 300 LA
    16 Bottles of Boldenon 200
    18 Bottles Anabolic ST 20ml
    19 Bottles of Sustanon 250mg
    19 Bottles of Primobolan Depot 100mg
    15 Bottles of Primobolan Depot Lote K-004


And 21 months later...

I imagine the volume of a wrestlers' stash obligates the arresting officer to write up 'intent to distribute' charges by statute. Assuming no evidence of actual dealing turns up, I don't see why the state would want to put Hardy behind bars.

I don't see why this boosts Punk career. The feud is over and Jeff left/quit already.
The fact that the things he said are now funnier/more true doesn't help him, since WWE won't acknowledge this.

And I don't think this is the end for Jeff. He already got his time off. WWE doesn't have to sever ties with him at this point. If he returns down the line (say... 1+ year) they will just test him and if he makes it through the test everything is fine.

Even if he does a short stint - it's not like a fair amount of the wrestlers haven't seen the inside of a jail. MVP, of course. Booker T did 19 months and guys like Austin, Rey, Show and others have done their night or two here and there.

Don't forget Randy Orton's time in military prison for being a deserter.

This is going to hurt 2 ways;

1) Jeff Hardy may find it a lot harder to enter the WWE again unless he is cleared of the drug charges. Even if Jeff didn't use the drugs, it still is bad that he was storing whatever the authorities found.

2) The WWE; Jeff Hardy is very popular and helps the WWE out because he sells a lot of merchandise and is consistently a big draw. But now the WWE faces a dilemma of whether or not to have him back. If the WWE does allow Jeff to come back, then he will help them out with merchandise but at the same time, the WWE is going to get a lot more media heat if they allow Hardy to come back.

It is a shame of what has happened because Jeff Hardy is such a big draw for the WWE but his personal problems do interfere with his professional life as well. I hope something does clear up but right now it is highly unlikely that any of us we'll see Jeff Hardy anytime soon.
