If you don't trust ex-drug addicts then I bet you cringe every time Randy Orton is out. Or better yet - Shawn Michaels. He was THE drug addict of them all yet he came back in 2002, just a few years after his huge issues and had a 10 year run with the WWE clean as a whistle.
At this point you're just trying to come up with stupid excuses. You're putting Hardy on the noose for something a lot of people in the WWE have and are doing at this moment. I bet you'd have a different stance if he was working under a WWE contract or if his problems weren't magnified so much by the dirt sheets.
Face it - WWE wants him, Hardy doesn't want the WWE, he wants TNA. Hell froze over.
To make your point you've lied twice.
Well, at the very least, you've made something up to make a point.
1) Jeff Hardy being clean is far from being a fact. The ONLY evidence we have of that is Jeff's word and a TNA storyline. Considering who we are dealing with, I'd hardly call that fact. I sincerely hope he is clean and whatnot but I wouldn't dare call that a fact, especially not to make a bad argument to begin with.
2) There's no proof that WWE wants him back. You can't say that just to make a point. If the guy was a free agent, maybe they'd talk to him but the only evidence of such was that Jeff himself gave an interview prior where he said he'd consider going back to the WWE. That doesn't mean they want him, just that he said he wouldn't be opposed to going back.
Like I've said though, this isn't some giant "stick it to WWE" coup for TNA. Heck, it's not even a surprising move. Jeff isn't a passionate wrestler. He hasn't been for a long time. He has other passions and he channels them into wrestling which pays his bills. That's why you get the facepaint, the music, and now the inner monologues. He's trying to make wrestling as "Jeff" as possible and TNA is letting him. In my opinion, they are doing so and it's detrimental to the product, but TNA is in a position where they feel they need Jeff more than Jeff needs them so they're willing to let him do that.
Honestly, I couldn't care less about Jeff but that's known around these boards. Maybe he draws but lets be honest, he hasn't exactly "taken TNA to the next level, brother". He's a good hand though a weird one who once had other-wordly popularity. I feel his antics hurt the product and make him less appealing to the masses but that's me. For now, he sells t-shirts more than anyone else so he's seen as valuable. That's fine, but lets not act like this is bigger than it is. It's not a gamechanger and it shouldn't merit this much discussion.
