"Sources close to the situation have informed me that NWA TNA and Jeff Hardy have been discussing a contract offer, rumored to be a one year deal.
Negotiations are said to be going well, with Hardy asking for some stipulations, such as having TNA help push Hardy's band Peroxwhy?gen (which occasionally features Shannon Moore on programming and background vocals).
At this point it time, it appears that the sides will come to a deal that will make Hardy a regular for the company.
I am guessing TNA plans on wrapping the deal up today, since they are promoting a Hardy update tonight on the PPV."
Once Jeff works off some ring rust, he could really be an asset to TNA. I look forward to another Jeff/AJ matchup.
Well, so much for Jeff being the father of Lita's baby. (Don't laugh... if Russo was booking this angle, you just know that's the route he would've taken. Well, after Vince shot down *him* being the daddy, of course.)
This is great for TNA because having Jeff Hardy in the X Division will allow them to move AJ back into the main event where he belongs. I still want Sabin to be next in line, but such is life. Anything to stop Jeff Jarrett's continued metamorphosis into TNA's Triple H...
I think Jeff is good for TNA and vice-versa. He's not on the road all the time like he would be for WWE, so he can still work on his music. And he can wrestle his high-flying style without being tied down to the "main-event style" in WWE.

Plus, you KNOW we've gotta see AJ & Hardy in a Ladder Match. (I'm waiting for Ultimate X myself...)
That's exactly what I said. An AJ/Jeff ladder match would be a virtual highlight reel. That is, if Jeff doesn't blow all the spots. But being there live the other night, he looked to be in better shape than he had in a while. He didn't look spaced out and appeared focused.
Or Ultimate X with Jeff, AJ, Daniels & Sabin ... yeah, I just soiled myself.
Eh, I don't care much either way. I don't hate Jeff or anything but I'd rather see Aj, Daniels, Low Ki, Sabin, Sonjay, Michael Shane, Elix and Amazing Red so it's not that great of an addition to me. He'll probably just take time away from the others.
I believe that Jeff Hardy could be an asset to TNA. I wouldn't have him work the X division. Maybe a few matches with A.J. and Jerry Lynn. He belongs in the Heavyweight Champion Mix for a few reasons. 1)He's much bigger that other X division competitors. B) He has a name recognition that only Dusty Rhodes, Sabu, Raven and Jeff Jarrett posess. In the end, will anyone order a PPV for $10 top see Jeff Hardy fight somebaody who looks like a pizza delivery boy.

On the right (or wrong) night, a Sabu/Jeff Hardy match could set a record for most blown spots in wrestling history. If true, it is a good sign for the company that they are giving out a year long contract, whereby if Hardy were to somehow get himself straightened up, they wouldn't have to fear flipping on RAW one Monday and seeing him there after building him up for a few weeks/months.
Any third world countries want Kevin Millar? I'll throw Ramiro Mendoza in the package just to give you a good deal.
Well I thought Jeff didnt look to bad in the ring last week.
Odds are Jeff would probably take this deal because working the PPV and then the Impact tapings and the occasional indy show is more ideal then being on the road with the WWE.

I hate to sound so harsh, but it's gonna take more than a somewhat short match with a schmozz ending last week to make me think Jeff Hardy is back to where he was during his peak...which was, what, four years ago? Five? I really enjoyed Jeff's work back then, but I can't say I'm optimistic about seeing him wrestle now.
There's no word yet on what the status is between Hardy and TNA, which basically means there's no contract signed yet. Doesn't it make TNA seem a little bush league and desparate to hype up actual contract negotiations? I mean if Jeff doesn't sign, it'll just disappoint the people that want to see him and put egg on TNA's face. It's bad enough that they hyped a "big update on Jeff Hardy" for last night's pay-per-view, with the update being basically that there is no update (this was on the same night that the main event of AJ Styles vs. Kid Kash that was hyped all week to sell the PPV didn't happen either).
I genuinely want TNA to be successful and compete on a real level with WWE, but it's stuff like this that just makes them look silly.

On the other hand, if Jeff Hardy were to take on on Amazing Red when Red's off his game, that match would also be an in-ring atrocity. Did you see the six-man opener on IMPACT! last week? If so, it was quite apparent that Amazing Red blew more spots than an air conditioner in a polka dot factory.

on today's Impact, Dusty had an envelope that he is personally taking to Jeff. the thing is he said it had in it what Jeff wants, what rock stars and football players want and the fist thing I though of was that the envelope must have a big bag of cocaine in it. Oh, and Shane douglass was the interviewer. Even with Vince Russo on the show, I'm going to say today's Impact was twice the show, even at half as long, as last night's SD.
