It has become widely known that Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy have been backed by WWE lawyers in their lawsuit with Impact Wrestling. As the Hardy brothers are still under contract with ROH, they haven't and legally cannot sign a contract with the WWE until after their contract with ROH expires after their April 1st match, but that doesn't mean that Reby Hardy cannot sign a contract with the WWE. That she is closing down her online shop Wednesday leads to that many more questions, but no answers as of yet.

It seems as though each year we become more and more worried about WrestleMania as it approaches, and while some matches help save the show every year, it seems as though they're missing the ball more and more. We all know who I like to blame for this, and I think I'm correct in that. All you have to do is watch NXT to see how fantastic it is compared to what we get every week on Raw, and sometimes (but less so) SmackDown. I hope things change […]
