I love watching the supporters of the Hardy Boyz make excuses/threats for them. There are what, 80 of these people, probably huddled in a parking lot somewhere, mooching off of McDonald's free WiFi, with a collective 6 teeth among them all. "Don't pick on mah Hardehz!" Fail.

The first pic that was posted with this headline was not of Matt Hardy. The one posted above is most def Matt Hardy. Everybody screws up once in a while, it's only human nature. Please don't crucify him.

Wrong pic that's an indie wrestler. Figures this guy made news cycles again. He's a nobody. He's a spiraling wrestler.
