Jeff Hardy Returns To Monday Night Raw?

Jeff Hardy was suspended for 60 days as of March 11 for violation of the W.W.E.’s wellness policy. Sunday is May 11 - some quick math reveals that Jeff Hardy is eligible to return. So will the W.W.E. bring him back this Monday night to its flagship program? Will they decide to punish him further by sticking him somewhere else, or even keeping him off of television altogether for a while?

No question about it, Jeff Hardy (pictured above) was on a real roll and the suspension could not have come at a worse time for the wrestler and the company. The violation occurred just weeks before Wrestlemania 24. Hardy then endured even further adversity when his house burned to the ground, thus causing him to lose all of his possessions. So what’s going to happen with Jeff Hardy? I guess only time will tell.

Elsewhere, Torrie Wilson, unable to compete again due to a bad back, was given her release yesterday by the W.W.E.

Scott Steiner has been granting interviews to the media in the runup to Sunday’s T.N.A. pay-per-view, Sacrifice. Steiner is very outspoken about some of the W.W.E.’s top stars and particularly Ric Flair, Triple H and Shawn Michaels. Kevin Eck, a favorite of mine, has an interview with Scott Steiner on his Baltimore Sun Ring Posts' blog here.

R.O.H. will be holding a huge card this Saturday night at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. I keep hearing such great things about Ring of Honor and am dying to check them out. More on the New York show at Newsday’s Steel Cage blog right here. If only R.O.H. had a t.v. deal.

W.W.E. Classics returns to the MSG Network on Wednesday night at 8.
