I mention this mostly because I wanted to point out that Jeff Hardy is listed as 6'0", 225. I know exaggerating heights and weights is a very old wrestling tradition, but does that strike anyone as just a little out of the realm of believability? I'm 6'1", 196 and am currently trying to lose 10 pounds. At the height of my three-times-a-week gym schedule, I was never above 190.

In wrestling terms it's not much of an exaggeration at all, especially in TNA where Hardy is actually taller than a lot of guys. Shawn Michaels gets announced with similar stats and he's about the same size as Hardy.
Ridiculous was Mike Tenay saying Samoa Joe was something like 6'10 during one of his early matches, but I'm pretty sure that was an accident.

Ha! Screw you Jeff Jarrett!
(edited by Mr. Boffo on 27.9.05 1705) In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.
I'm definitely watching next week. Also, I like Tenay, hate shillmaster Don West and am in the middle on Ferrarra. But, goddamn! Do all anouncers have to talk or work their way in the middle of promos.
