Killer, Lover, Pokemon Master...
This is a Professional Wrestling blog.
Fitting, since he has once again been humbled beyond all reason.
He does not look happy.
Watching all of this Jeff Hardy reminds me off all the stupid things he was saying and doing just 9 months or so ago.
Then I think about where everybody is now. Matt and Jeff aren’t on tv and CM Punk is about to headline one of the biggest WWE ppvs as the WWE champion with one of the biggest stars of all time in John Cena.
I feel that the last time we see CM Punk, when the time comes that he finally disappears into the Chicago night for good, it will be in a way appropriate for him. Either getting his comeuppance or receiving the respect he deserves in some fashion. Whatever it may be, it will certainly be better than the last we saw of Matt teaming with Chris Harris or Jeff Hardy at Victory Road.
This isn’t a petty post, this isn’t a ‘let’s all laugh at the Hardys again’ joke, but I think there is something to be said about people that make the right decisions in their lives. And that isn’t a statement on drug use, it’s a statement on life.
But who knows, maybe the Hardys did make the best decisions for themselves. Maybe it’s best that they got away, even in shame and embarrassment. We’ll see.
In all, it’s nice to see people like Punk that worked hard and stuck it out eventually getting what they want. Especially in a world of Hardy Boys and people like them. What is happening now is a validation of the decisions Punk has made in his life. He stayed true to himself and was a success by being himself, for better or worse. It is an inspiration to people like me that want to do things in their own way. Jeff Hardy also was a success with his own approach to life and to a significantly lesser extent, Matt, but then something happened.
I don’t think we’ll have to say the same thing about CM Punk. I don’t think we’ll ever get a “Where are they now?” article about CM Punk. I don’t think CM Punk will be opening car dealerships or doing rent a center commercials. I don’t think CM Punk will make a series of unapologetic embarrassing public displays. I think CM Punk is someone we can hang out hats on.
There is a risk in proclaiming a wrestler as your favorite. It takes a piece of your heart. It makes what happens to them later all the more difficult. I think what is great about guys like CM Punk is that we don’t have to worry about all that. He may hurt our feelings, but we will never have to be apologist for him or for liking him. In that respect, he’s a lot like John Cena.
I think WWE is done with paper heroes like Jeff Hardy, Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan, etc. All of those guys have let their fans down in a lot of ways. Shawn Michaels used to be that guy. We have champions now that might finally kill the saying that you should never meet your heroes. We have heroes we can proudly claim allegiance to.
And so I apologize to the people that had a hero in the Hardys and have to hold your hand over your face during every ridiculous youtube video. I apologize to the people that had a hero in Randy Orton and have to cover your ears when he goes on an ill advised verbal bowl movement.
There are heroes. But sometimes there’s a man…sometimes there’s a man.
My hero is CM Punk.
I don’t like Jeff Hardy.
Mark Madden said some pretty stupid shit (again). Do I think it is wrong for the company to look the other way if Jeff does shit? Yeah, I do.
But do I wish death on the man? No, no I don’t Mark. I joke here and there, but that’s a horrible thing to say about someone, even if they’re a drug addled hack.
And stop calling people marks, you sound like a jackass.
HAHAHAHAHAHA. DERELICT TWITTER USERS ABUSIN ME
I BASICALLY JUST HAD A FEUD WITH HURRICNE
GREATER THAN HIM V BURCHILL LOL
One of the North Carolina troupe of wrestlers is a douche? You’ve got to be kidding me!
I probably shouldn’t gotten as legit pissed over that as I did. But it is just characteristic of everything I ever said Jeff Hardy was.
So I may be mad, but at least I was right. And that’s what matters, right?
Worst part about that statement is that you don’t know what sloppy Juff/Abyss match I’m talking about.
Jeff screws up a big table spot, blows it, hurts himself, and destroys the tables.
And then he blows destroying the tables too.
God he sucked that match. Nothing went well.
