The main event of the TNA Victory Road 2011 PPV was Sting vs. Jeff Hardy for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, which became the most infamous match in the history of Total Nonstop Action! Wrestling.

Hardy was intoxicated and in no condition to compete. Sting forcefully pinned Hardy to end the match in 88 seconds.

After the match was over, Sting responded to fans chanting “Bullsh*t” by saying “I agree”. Hardy was abusing drugs and alcohol, and completed a 120 day rehab after that incident.

To make up for that horrible pay-per-view main event, TNA offered 6 months free service of “TNA on Demand” to the fans who bought that pay-per-view event.

Speaking on his Extreme Life Of Matt Hardy podcast, Matt Hardy recalled the incident and said that Jeff should’ve never been allowed to go out in such a state:

“He should’ve never been allowed to walk out through Gorilla if he was in such a weird state of mind.

I remember hearing there were people saying that he tried to push his way out [and] he wanted to get out, whatever, and like, he really shouldn’t have been allowed to get out there.”

Matt then recalled seeing Jeff 45 minutes before the main event and everything being fine with him.

“Then maybe he went off and did his own thing then. He was fine when I talked to him, but between then and when he went to the ring he had obviously taken more medication, which equated to him not being fine.

It’s like one of those things where your heart drops to your stomach, and it’s just like, ‘uh.

It’s just so devastating to watch, and you just hate it for him so bad. But, it’s what’s happened, and now you have to deal with it.”
