Jeff Hardy Wasted Wastes CM Punk

The Jeff and Matt Hardy video that made the rounds last week, in which Jeff blasted CM Punk and a rather "tired" looking Matt Hardy was mumbling something about Amy Dumas aka Lita, who has dated both Matt and Punk in the past.

Besides the obvious discussion about the apparent condition of the Hardys in the video, the talk is about how TNA has former heart throb Jeff Hardy as champion, only to have him play supporting player to Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff, while on Raw, The Miz of Cleveland, Ohio is already positioned as a champion, and defended the title tonight in an excellent match against Jerry Lawler, carrying the 61 year old Lawler through a Tables Ladders and Chairs Match, without giving away a match on television.The talk was not only about how bad the Hardys came off in the video, but how much better WWE has done with Miz in just one week as champion than TNA has done in turning the hottest wrestling pay per view attraction of 2009 into a heel champion in 2010.

In case you missed it, you can check out all the details and watch the Jeff/Matt Hardy video if you

WWE Title At Home In Cleveland

Mike Mizanin, Cleveland, Ohio -- a former reality star from "Real World: Season 10" -- was officially crowned as the heavyweight champion of the WWE Monday ... after a huge surprise upset victory over Randy Orton.

"The Miz" -- who came up with his own nickname during the MTV show back in 2001 -- began wrestling with the WWE back in 2004.

Miz ain't the only ex-Real Worlder having a huge year -- Sean Duffy from Season 6 won a seat in Congress earlier this month.

Maybe there's still hope for Puck ...

Hershal Says Batista Will Be A Beast

Football legend-turned MMA rookie Herschel Walker has had a chance to train with another crossover to MMA in Dave Batista, a former WWE Superstar, and according to Walker, people may need to watch out for Batista.

Walker shared his thoughts on Batista heading to Strikeforce, the same promotion the one-time NFL legend currently calls home, and his thoughts in general on Batista as a fighter after training with him recently.

Walker stated:

"I think that's great for Strikeforce to sign a guy like that. But I know Dave and one thing that's great about him (is) he's doing what I did. He went into a camp, people are talking about him fighting but they're not talking about (how) he went into a camp. He's over at the Gracie's camp. He's over there with Diaz, which I think Nick and Nate Diaz are absolutely incredible fighters. I love the way they fight. And what's strange about it, this guy is over there training, he's not over here talking about, "I want to be an MMA fighter," but he's not out there training. He's out there training. So he's going to be a beast. He was a beast as a professional wrestler, so he's going to be a beast here. The guy is going to be pushing what, 265 pounds? He's strong as an ox, so yeah, he's going to be a beast."



LMAO.....woud watch these two fight each other and that's about it.

Benoit's Father Take Shots At The McMahons.

The following is an excerpt from an article in the Hartford Courant by Michael Benoit, father to the late Chris Benoit:

Watching from afar, I've observed with interest the U.S. Senate campaign in Connecticut because of my experiences with Linda McMahon and her business, World Wrestling Entertainment. While she spends millions of dollars earned through her professional wrestling empire to flood Connecticut's airwaves and mailboxes promoting her Republican candidacy, state voters should know there is another side to McMahon and the WWE.

My son, Chris Benoit, 40, was one of WWE's top superstars. In June 2007, our lives changed dramatically, when he tragically killed his wife, son and himself. The press jumped on steroids as the cause of his actions. But tests showed that brain damage in the form of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, or CTE, not steroids, was responsible for our loss. CTE, caused by repetitive trauma to the brain, can bring on serious disorders such as a loss of emotional control, addictions to drugs and alcohol, depression, aggressive and violent behavior.

Most people view wrestling as fake and the McMahon family pushed that theory to avoid regulation. But in its lust for higher ratings and dollars, WWE began demanding that performers use more weapons and dangerous stunts in wrestling matches. Although matches are rigged and scripted, the harsh physical abuse in the form of blunt force steel chair shots to the head and power bombs through tables onto cement floors are real. I believe that this change in the industry is responsible for the majority of deaths it experienced in the last 20 years.

Another WWE wrestler, Andrew Martin, was 33 when he died. What did Andrew Martin have in common with my son? He was one of many of McMahon's former wrestlers who died prematurely, and he was the second wrestler to have his brain examined for signs of CTE after death. Martin had the same shocking brain damage as my son. The human skull is not designed to withstand and protect the brain from the abuse the McMahon's insisted their wrestlers endure. Yet, since the late '80s, these are the matches into which the McMahon's have pushed their talent.

USA Today in 2004 published research stating that wrestlers are 20 times more likely to die before the age of 45 than are pro football players. What has the McMahon family done to make pro wrestling safer? They will spend up to $50 million to get Linda elected to a position where she could head off any effort to regulate their business.

The WWE and Linda McMahon evade any responsibility for the early deaths that their industry suffers at an astronomical rate. After the Martin tests were completed, I sought to educate the McMahons about the scientific findings on brain trauma and how their wrestling stunts could cause this serious and fatal health issue. They were having none of it. It was clear, the McMahons were more interested in making hundreds of millions of dollars at the expense of these wrestlers, whom they regard as little more than circus animals to be ridden until their value expires.
