Jim Ross from JR’s blog on Jeff Hardy being gone from World Wrestling Entertainment:
Ross on Jeff Hardy: “Jeff will be away TFN for a much needed sabbatical, for the lack of a better term. I think Jeff is being very wise in taking some time off of a business that has no official off season unless one makes one for one’s self. Jeff has a myriad of interests outside wrestling which is also smart for any performer. No one should be one dimensional in their life and those that eat, sleep, and breath their jobs usually find that formula not to be healthy over the long haul.
Jeff has spoken of being a part of a reality TV show in the past but that is still in the talking stages as I understand it and may or may not ever be green lighted. Nonetheless Jeff Hardy has earned the time to do what ever he chooses and enjoy life while allowing his body to heal and recover. It’s all about recharging one’s batteries of which I have always endorsed for all talents.”
WWE Intercontinental Champion Rey Mysterio has been suspended for 30 days for violating the Wellness Policy. This is Mysterio’s first offense of the three strike program. He was slated to defend the Intercontinental Championship at the Breaking Point pay-per-view, which will fall right in the middle of the suspension.
