What a DUMB move on his part. And I love how he tried to lie on Twitter saying everything was "Exagerated" Either way...CM Punk was right.

It's idiots like this that make it very hard for people who have terminal illness like myself to get pain meds as well as other drugs because of these idiots abusing them. I have no sympathy for him or anyone else that abuse prescription drugs and I do not care who they are,or how much money they have. I hope they throw the book at this worthless excuse for a human being!!!!!!!!!!! I do pray he gets the help he needs while in prison.

The Chris Benoit case had little to do with steroids and more about the significant amount of brain damage he suffered over the course of his career and how it affected his brain. This is just Jeff Hardy, yet again being a dumb ass. I'm sure WWE is now very glad that he chose to take time off and not resign.

Look to-ward's Vince McMahon, he controls over 75% of all Wrestling USA and World' and much more, he was busted for giving Steroids to Wrestlers' then walked, to begin requiring Steroid using Wrester's, our pro sport clubs joined' by allowing Steroid use, school age kids' cops' and fireman' kept dying' from Steroid use, want-a-be Wrestlers start Steroids, fail to become Wrestlers' and are ruined for life. When will it stop.
Kurt Angle busted by fed's early 2007, then Chris Benoit, then Curt Angle gets followed home by police, chased into his house, and found with handful of Steroid's in his mouth by police, all in 2007, now Steroids last week.

It's a shame to see how he spiraled so low. And I don't believe his Twitter page at all. As many drug issues as he's had, I don't doubt this report for a second. As I said, it's a shame. His druggie ways are the reason I lost all respect for the man. Frankly I won't be surprised to hear he's died of an overdose one day.

Well what a surprise. My grandson loves WWE. I refuse to let him watch it when he is at my house.
I have tried my darndest to get him out of that mindset. What happened to wrestling. It was stupid enough with Gorgeous George and Vern Gagne. It has become a worthless waste of time and television.

CMPUNK SPONSORS PEPSI!    

This is sad real sad Michael Jackson....Now Im mad real mad Joe Jackson!
Hahaha anyways.
This guy is freakin awesome, after entertaining us all jumping off ladders, getting hit with chairs, jumping off the top rope and landing on his back of course he has to have drugs. How do you think all these wrestlers come out week after week after week when suffering bad injuries. Sad part is, he proved CMPUNK right, and even though I hate the guy I have no doubt he also uses some king of drug. He is an idiot and the Undertaker needs to kick his ass. Anyhow..Jeff...buddy...get some help and get well. If you dont want to be dead tomorrow, then stop popping the pills even if it means toning down some of the actions you do while wrestling.
Peace.
AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
