While all reports on Tuesday suggested Jeff Hardy signed a deal with TNA, there is at least some skepticism from those close to the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
According to some within Hardy’s inner circle, there is a belief that his appearance on Monday’s iMPACT! was similar to the original Bobby Lashley debut in that he was put on television without a written contract.
Though some still maintain Hardy signed with TNA for the short-term, a portion of insiders believe it was a one-shot deal. There is also an intermediate group holding that Hardy did not sign a written commitment to appear in future but went on television with a verbal understanding that he would indeed return for future broadcasts.
It should be noted that Hardy drove back home to North Carolina on Tuesday and was not backstage at the TNA tapings later that night. Of course, he was indicted by a grand jury earlier in the day on Monday so that may have had something to do with it. As I noted several days ago, North Carolina drug laws are very strict. Time to lawyer up Jeff!
