- There were people within TNA pushing for World Champion Jeff Hardy to be sent home and stripped of the title before last night’s Final Resolution pay-per-view after concern was voiced over his condition when he arrived at the iMPACT Zone.
Hardy met with TNA officials and the decision was made to keep him on the show. Sources say that Hard said his condition was due to exhaustion from his recent TNA schedule.
Hardy flew back from the Middle East where TNA had live events this past week and then went home to North Carolina to his newborn baby for one day. Hardy then flew to Michigan to appear at a monster truck event with Shannon Moore and Jesse Neal before working the pay-per-view yesterday.
When a decision was made to pull Hardy from the pay-per-view, word got out that he was being sent home due to his condition. Hardy then spoke with officials and he was kept on the show.
There was a plan in place that would have saw Eric Bischoff announce Hardy was injured on the tour overseas. The main event would have then been Matt Morgan vs. Jeff Jarrett vs. Ken Anderson. No word yet on who they had planned to win the title.
Hardy is still scheduled for this week’s iMPACT tapings.
