• Old School Legend Not Happy With WWE Using Jeff Hardy’s Substance Abuse Problem In Storylines
WWE recently sent Jeff Hardy home after a Live Event and then released him when he refused to go to rehab for his issues.
Old School Legend Jim Cornette recently addressed Hardy being sent home on his podcast and had the following to say about WWE using Hardy’s substance abuse problem in storylines:
“Always, always that is f**king rotten whether it is Jeff or whether it was Vince Russo who did it with Hawk 20 years ago or whatever the case. Even Paul Heyman bringing Sunny on ECW to talk about her issues.
No, you bring real life into wrestling in a positive way where the people know things are true so you can insert it into the story you are telling fans.
Regardless, I have never seen an upside in any way shape or form in any of the times anybody has worked having a substance abuse problem or shot on having a substance abuse problem or working, referring to a shoot substance abuse problem, any of it.
It is simply not good whatsoever and I do not know why they keep doing it.”
