No one who knows anything about Jeff Hardy is the least bit shocked about this story. Jeff's drug problems have been common knowledge for years.

In other news the earth is round, the sky is blue and one day you will die.

Oh, c'mon people! Don't you know that this is all part of an elaborate wrestling storyline? It's all pretend! Why do you think CM Punk kept making fun of Jeff's drug habits this whole time? This is all part of a scripted and elaborate storyline concocted by the WWE.....and very well done I might add! Next week on Smackdown, Punk will say "I told you so," and it will be hinted that Jeff is returning to the WWE to teach Punk a lesson for saying that. Jeff will return, proclaim his innocence, challenge Punk for the World Heavyweight Championship to prove his innocence, and win it at a pay-per-view in an extreme rules tables/ladders/chairs match, and then everthing will be dandy and right with the world again!

It's all make-believe I tell you.....just like it is when the WWE tries to make us believe that John Cena is a good actor....or a good wrestler....or even popular!

Funny how the last storyline with him before he left was that he was a reformed druggie who made it to world champ status and this "straight edge" guy beats him for the title and then beats him in a "loser leaves wwe" match LAST WEEK.

Then the interview CM Punk does LAST WEEK he talks about how he's a straight edge world champ, drug free, wont ever get arrested, wont ever miss a show, etc etc because there's now a straight edge world champ. Hilarious how the straight edge drug free guy is the "bad guy" and Hardy is the hero to kids. Comes across like the "bad guy" was right. How ironic. Do storylines with a hint of reality in them and they can come true if one guy messes up and Hardy messed up big time.

From Jeff Hardy's twitter you guys are always behind on wrestling stuff:

@JEFFHARDYBRAND For the record, Matt didn't bail me out, loan me money, or is his name on anything.. He's just learning about today's situation..

@JEFFHARDYBRAND The media is the media, I wish they would at least report the story correctly & accurately. I will make a statement later.

This is a gossip site. How do you know all this is even true? I know he was arrested. He's always told the truth about his mistakes. Why would he lie now? I am going to wait for his statement to say anything about him. I am praying for you Jeff.

This is what Jeff Hardy does... He gets another chance, he moves his way up, he works hard, he becomes successful and then he pisses it all away doing something stupid.

How many times does he have to pull this kind of stuff? If I remember correctly, the WWE released him last time because he was released for drugs and harashing his brother's ex-girlfriend. Then TNA gave him another chance and he decides not to show up to pay per views. Now, with his most recent chance he goes back on drugs after they made him champion. [Didn't he also burn down his trailer not that long ago?]

Jeff Hardy is an addict who is scared of success. He has all of the talent in the world, but because of his bad decisions he's losing his job (again) and he's probably going to jail.

...I doubt Mr. McMahon is ever going to give Jeff another chance. If anything, maybe he'll be a jobber in 5-10 years.

Jeff is not employed by WWE. He left the company a week or so ago and it was well known he would be leaving and not signing a new contract. Just a FYI.

As for this report, it is not at all surprising. CM Punk wasn't making up what he said. Everyone knew Jeff was a messed up kid who turned into a messed up man. He made tons of money over the years but blew it all.

My question is, how could Matt not have known? And how will this affect him. He still is employed by WWE and guilty by association. Jeff has said that Matt did not pay to get him out of jail on Twitter. No idea who did.

He needs Dr. Drew and jail. And actually LIKE the guy as a wrestler but he's going where wrestlers never come back and I would hate to see the next headline be that he was found dead.
