Let's just remember the ladder and TLC matches he was able to put on before the flippy-floppy "Imagy-nation" we saw as of late. What is Imagynation anyway? Did Jeff imagyne Trish was a guy?



Some may think HHH is pale imitation of Ric Flair in his heyday. They're wrong, though. After all, HHH is orange.

I know so many people who dress in a similar fashion to Jeff Hardy. He was kind of cartoony, but he represented a large portion of America. Funny, ain't it? Maybe the band will take off, and then he'll do shows with Fozzy and that band that nick patrick is in.

I was a huge Jeff Hardy fan- but I admit that what he was putting out there was not spectacular of late. I think that his termination was not such a bad thing- I just think it was a shame that it had to come to that....

Yeah, that`s basically my sentiments too. Maybe my all-time markout moment was being present for his IC Title win over HHH in Philly, but his heart just didn`t seen to be in wrestling anymore. And if he can afford to go off and make alumnium statues and write poems for a while, more power to him. This seems to be less of a firing and more of Jeff leaving to do something else with his life for a while. If he comes back to wrestling...great. If not, then maybe he got out with his health more or less in tact.

Hopefully people will remember that he had a band that he wanted to devote more time to and maybe he felt that now is the time or the WWE felt that he was worrying more about the band then wrestling?

I can forsee a scenario in a year or so when Matt Hardy turns face and he needs a mystery partner in a tag match. Out comes Jeff, and 12-year-old girls everywhere rejoice.

I was never much of a Hardy Fan, of the people involved in all the TLC matches, he is my least favorite. But, I sorta feel for the guy, locked into a contract to do something he really didnt have his heart in. At least he didnt kill himself in the ring in the meantime.

Hopefully he finds happiness. He gave a lot of years of his life giving it to others. He deserves some now.

This is all a ploy by McDonalds to increase their sales. You know, pay off WWE to release Jeff Hardy = fat teenage girls everywhere drowning themselves in tears and Big Macs.

A "large portion of America"? Where in the hell do you live? A small minority maybe. I go to a pretty large University and I could probably count on one hand how many people who I've seen lookin' like Jeff Hardy. And I've been to some strange places.

Okay, let's just imagine that Jeff was in fact "Willy the Worker." If, by some chance, management found some sort of proof (to keep it simple, let's say they asked him if he was the culprit and he admitted to it)... how do you think a major corporation like WWE would handle this in a press release?

To me, it would make sense for them to say that he was being given time off for "personal reasons" - during which time they debated the pros and cons of releasing Jeff. Then, after thinking about it, they decided that he was not the sort of employee they want on their payroll/roster.

Makes sense to me IF this is what happened. And hey, it explains the whole "personal reasons" thing. We haven't heard anybody talk about Jeff's demons, like we did with Eddie Guerrero when he was let go. We all knew about Eddie's DUI charge and alleged painkiller addiction, which is what he ended up in rehab for. Co-workers and friends of Eddie's confirmed in interviews that Eddie had demons. I have yet to hear or read anything about Jeff having substance-related problems.

When a popular wrestler like Jeff Hardy is "regretfully" let go for "personal reasons", it seems like they're covering something embarrassing. And if you read over that press release, it looks like they're saying they wish Jeff hadn't chosen to do something that he went out of his way and purposely did - something that put his job with WWE in jeopardy.

Mark me down as someone who thinks he was indeed Willy and got caught.

Warning: Put your hardhats on, falling Hardyfans may be in effect. I dropped by a Team Xtreme board (didn't make fun, couldn't be that much of a jerk) and all I can say is it's very depressing day in the Imagi-nation.

I'm I surprised? Yes and No. It's one of those things that with all the reports on him you it wasn't a question of if but When a blow up will happen... The only question I have is it WWE who had enough or was it Jeff who was just tired of it. Most of the time it's obvious that WWE is the one in the position of power (especially now with no competition), but in this case I don't know.

For all of Jeff's faults and he has many, he's always been one of the most over guys in the company no matter what, had a very loyal fanbase who shilled out tons of green to by his merch and brought in a fan base to the TV and arenas that might not have gone if it wasn't for Jeff.

i like Jeff, while all my fellow IWC were breaking their ankles jumping off the bandwagon I stayed on really wanting to give him the benefit of the doubt, especially for all he gave us a couple of years ago. I fully admit at times in the past year he was borderline embarrassing in there but in the last few months he seemed more focused... I liked him because he wasn't the norm, he wasn't generic, he wasn't the cookie cutter wrestlers that seem to be all over the WWE roster. For better or worse he was unique and distinct, and it's something I want to see more of.

On contrary to most recent returning superstars, I'd be very happy to see Jeff return sooner then later... Whatever reason he left or they released him hopefully soon he figures out why he got into wrestling in the first place and get his head into it again

I wholeheartedly agree, Chill. I didn't know about the whole Willy the Worker thing until my brother pointed it out to me while discussing possible reasons for him being fired.

Thing is... as sloppy and as uncaring as this guy has gotten, he was selling A LOT of merchandise. He often had many, MANY of his things on the top 10 selling list for a long time. Why would you fire this guy who's making you a ton of money unless you had a good reason to?

I, personally, think that the WWE would be more willing to look past, say, a heroin problem than a person who was openly bashing the company. Because, if he were, say, a heroin user, it really has no effect on the way that people see the product as long as they can keep it quiet. But if he goes off and writes a few columns stating he's a WWE wrestler and saying that the current product sucks, he's openly affecting the business of the company.

I like Jeff. I like him a lot. And if he was Willy the Worker, god bless him. Wrestling needs more people like him. Even if he didn't have the balls to do it under his own name, he still did it. He voiced his opinion... and he paid the price.

Thank you, Jeff... maybe... if we're lucky... others will follow in your footsteps. Probably not... but... it's a start.

THAT would be sig material, if it wasn't so easy to guess the context. But that was fuckin' hilarious.

Okay, so maybe you won't see many people dressing like Jeff Hardy at a LARGE UNIVERSITY (duh). You also won't see a lot of people dressing like him in an office building. But if you go to any mall or walk down the streets of the downtown/village section of any city, you will see plenty of people dressed with similar types of clothing and styles. Trust me on this. I spent the last few months playing violin at malls all over the place, and I saw them everywhere I went.

This week's Observer says that (before the release news came out, obviously) Jeff Hardy asked the company a few weeks if he could quit, and had tentatively agreed to stay on a few days a week while still under contract. I wonder if that was really the case; they just granted him an out, because they knew his heart wasn't into it?
