Hardy Talks WWE’s Anti-Benoit Policy, JR/NXT, & More


— Matt Hardy wrote the following on Twitter yesterday regarding WWE’s policy of not mentioning Chris Benoit:

“I totally understand why WWE has adopted a non-Benoit policy, that’s a business move to attempt to distance themselves from Chris’s terrible final actions. My point is that I don’t have to cater to & speak by “WWE history”, as opposed to actual, factual history. WWE can treat the Benoit situation as if he never existed, but in reality, he absolutely did.”

— Hall of Famer Jim Ross will indeed be returning to work tonight at the NXT/FCW tapings from Full Sail University in Florida. Ross wrote on Twitter this morning:

“I’m READY to saddle up! Any horses at Full Sail in Orlando? Hope fans come ready to raise hell!”

Ross added that he heard tonight’s tapings were sold out.

— Tonight’s Superstar Showdown TV taping at Full Sail University in Florida is set to include at least two weeks of NXT episodes, which will be part of the company establishing a regular taping schedule at the school. The tapings are set to include WWE Developmental wrestlers from FCW. As previously reported, HHH will appear and two matches—Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio and Kofi Kingston & R-Truth vs. Primo & Epico—are set for the show.
