JR Blog: Jeff Hardy in TNA, Angle vs. Styles, Hart and More

Jim Ross is back with another blog with thoughts on last night’s RAW and iMPACT. Here are some highlights:

– The dialog between HBK and the Hitman sounded so natural that I thought I was eavesdropping on two old rivals’ conversation. They were simply being themselves. Their handshake made the night complete for me but remember that I lived through the debacle of ’97 and was just a little immersed in it and spent many, many hours “talking wrestlers off the ledge” so to speak for hours after the controversial incident.

The McMahon-Bret confrontation was well done especially planting the seed early and keeping me hooked until the end of the show for the payoff plus adding some spice to the dish in between.

The Mr. McMahon persona is so easy to dislike and the Chairman got the last word and the final act of physicality in the exchange with his longstanding adversary and left me wanting to see more and wondering how Bret will respond next Monday night? Or will he? This issue has new, fresh legs.

– The Legacy/Orton issue has my interest. Something is bound to give there soon one would assume. As evil as Orton’s actions are, he’s always going to have a fan base because of Randy’s youth, look, demeanor and the fact that defiant young males live vicariously though Mr. RKO.

– It surprised me to see Jeff Hardy on Spike TV Monday night which I am sure will get some fans talking and critics/pundits asking a great deal of questions. I’m a Jeff Hardy fan and I wish him well. Jeff had a great tenure in WWE and considering that I signed him and his brother Matt to their first WWE contracts I will always consider the Hardy brothers as being special. As Hall of Fame Coach Barry Switzer once told me, “Once you recruit a player you recruit them for life.”

– Knowing how much Ric Flair still enjoys wrestling I was not shocked to see Ric on another channel Monday night. The WWE gave Ric the greatest send-off/retirement presentation that I have ever witnessed but nonetheless “Naitch” has wrestling running through his veins and he’s going lace ’em up until he simply can’t do it any longer. Ric Flair has been my friend for about 30 years and I wish him well in what ever he does in his career.

– Former WWE Champion Kurt Angle, another one of the guys that I signed to their first WWE contract, and A.J. Styles had a truly excellent wrestling match that I got glimpses of Monday night.

    Jeff Hardy is a great wrestler, no matter his personal flaws. Im disappointed that he may be going to TNA only because i know hes worth more. But he hasnt said, and they havent said, that he is actually going to TNA. And if the probable cause hearing goes right, i doubt the WWE would hesitate to hire him. He makes too much money for them, and since technically he didnt violate the wellness policy. Im a Hardy Boyz fan for life, and id love to see Jeff come back to the WWE.
