Who? It is so funny how TMZ wants to make a star out of the most obscure people. I will have to say I don't know 80% of the people they do stories on here. The fact that you have been on TV one time or another does not make you news worthy.

He's been driving messed up for years. He was probably high on heroin and still is.

It is (It's) definitely Matt Hardy in the picture/pic. It is (It's) just that his in-ring persona has a more "serious" side to him. Dixie Carter was right in what she did! You do not (don't) want another Ryan Dunn moment to come out of this. As Harvey Levin would say: that would be a public relations (p.r.) nightmare!!!!! And Total Nonstop Action (T.N.A.) Wrestling already has bad PR on its hands with (w/) Matt's brother Jeff... especially Jeff!

Ive never been a fan of the Hardys, i have lost my interest in wrestling within the last yr. or so. To me i think they should be fined by the Impact wrestling company, but wrestlings not like any other sport, you pretty much can take any drug, or drink obsessively and not worry about any fines or suspensions. Hardys bad for business.

Now, understand I don't condone the drunk driving or the drugs (allegations or true), but I have always been and will always remain a Hardy Boyz fan. My prayers to Matt and Jeff. Hoping to see you both back in the ring very soon. And to those people judging, you're not perfect either, neither am I, no one is. Some people just have a few more or a little worse imperfections than others. Get over yourselves. And, yes, that picture is Matt. Idiots.

It seems today that drinking and driving is the thing to do for TNA wrestlers, a very bad message is being sent those who look up to you guys and gals.
