Hey guys Knox here, @jaeknox on twitter, sorry for the plug lol. Hope you all are doing well. First let me give thanks to those of you that commented on my last blog titled "How Wrestling Matters Backfired on TNA". I expected alot of hate comments and bashing but only received two so thanks guys for seeing it for what it was. I wasn't bashing TNA, I love the company, I just don't like the people running it.
Now lets get to the topic of this blog right here. MATT HARDY. Does anyone miss this guy? Does anyone miss the random videos? Does anyone miss the numerous posts of this site about Matt Hardy?.......Um, I do. I sure as hell miss Matt Hardy but let me explain why.
The Internet Phase:
Matt Hardy pretty much started the whole youtube social media thing. Give him credit. Matt & Jeff started utilizing youtube back in 2007 before they became huge problems in the wrestling world.
Then Matt became fed up with the E' and started making his hate videos for the WWE and then after his release went on to the even more foul videos that many of us didn't like.
But he started it. Zack Ryder, Ted Dibiase, Tommy Dreamer, Sean Waltman, Raven, Curt Hawkins, Daniel Bryan, Ultimate Warrior, MVP, Melina, The Bellas and the others all came after Matt Hardy.
WWE's twitter expansion:
Can we all agree that Matt Hardy has something to do with this? Hardy is known for his videos and tweets and all of a sudden after Hardy & Ryder, the WWE are overly pushing twitter. I may seem a bit off the wall, but I truly believe this has something to do with Matt Hardy. This trails all the way back to his "Version 1" days.
The Bad Videos:
I wouldn't call any of Matt's videos bad or inappropriate. I seen it as a guy having fun documenting his life. I think people got too caught on the fact that he's a professional wrestler as if he didn't have a personal life. Yeah the tazing video was a bit dumb and uncalled for but the others were pretty cool especially the gag about the ghost.
Matt Hardy's rehab:
This was very deep and he took matters into his own hands and got help. I don't know if he was forced or it was his choice but point blank he got help. His rehab video touched a spot in everyone's heart and hopefully he'll come out of this 100% clean which would be great for the business. This business needs more success stories like HBK.
The Internet Marks Hatred Towards Matt:
The hate some of you guys gave Hardy was beyond evil. Hardy is human just like all of us. The way the people ridiculed his name was upsetting. Matt is known as a responsive wrestler to his fans. Hell back in 09, I would talk to Matt through youtube and he would reply rarely.
The point is that Matt reads what the people says. He comes to this site and reads the comment threads on the posts about him. But bashing a man's character doesn't help. You guys were wishing death upon a man for no reason.
So I'm confused. Because Matt Hardy is a wrestler, he gets nothing but bashing comments and death wishes........But because Benoit was a wrester, he gets the majority of you guys respect even after taking the life of his wife and son? I'm confused on how hard it is to accept Hardy but how easy it is to accept a sad human being like Chris Benoit.

Heres my question to the IWC & Whomever is reading this blog:
Would any of you support Matt Hardy again? Would any of his former fans jump on board with Matt & Jeff? Would you all continue to bash him? I just wanna know so please leave feedback.
Matt Hardy's Wrestling School:
He's starting a wrestling school which is pretty cool. He's wiling to pass on his expertise and train the future the futures of this business. I think Hardy truly wants to fix his life. Check the video below about the wrestling school.
Possible WWE Return?
The WWE has always been a big open door for guys to leave and come depending on their success there. Just ask R-Truth, Christian, Kevin Nash and the others. I don't feel Matt has completely burned that bridge just this yet.
I feel like he can have one more amazing run with the WWE whether he's alone or brings Jeff with him. He has to believe it in himself that he can give it that one last run. Remember, he was one of the most over guys with the fans before leaving the WWE. I feel he can jump right back in that spot and only move up.
Thanks guys for reading. Please enjoy and be safe and leave feedback. Just trying to see if I'm the only Matt Hardy fan out there.
