– Matt Hardy has posted an in-character blog regarding his exodus from ECW. “Although I wanted out, I honestly couldn’t believe he let me go they easy. I thought I was gonna have to put up a fight to get out of my ECW contract,” Hardy wrote. “But no, I was allowed to leave the brand at the mere mention of “I want my contractual release.”
Hardy calls Theodore Long a bad general manager and says he carried ECW on his back for months. “I was the ECW Heavyweight Champion for nearly 5 months and I carried his company on my back. I was undoubtedly the greatest WWE ECW Champion there has been. I made the Sci-Fi program of ECW a must-see event if I was on it,” Hardy wrote.
Hardy also talks about how many members of the ECW roster had the best matches of their career with him. “I made all these guys into bigger stars than they were before wrestling me,” Hardy wrote. “That’s what I do, I make people stars. I get more out of human beings than they’ve ever known their capable of. I’ve done it my entire career.” He then names more wrestlers he turned into bigger stars including Lita, Edge and Jeff Hardy.
