Here's my question to everyone that's mad - Who the hell would be champ then? If A&8s are going for the gold, you need a face champ. If Daniels/Roode/Aries won it, you'd need a face challenger that isn't tied in to the A&8s angle. And since unfortunately the only good answer to both is James Storm and they've cut the legs out from under him, it's not worth it to change your plan because Hardy won't be on tv for 4 weeks.

Bully screams at your blasphemous post as AJ looks on with strong feelings of condescension.

is AJ on the tour anyway? he's still selling the corporate janitor angle and considering how over he was during previous UK tours, it will be massively stupid not to bring him there

Bully's dealing with A&8s & Brooke so the title would be secondary until if/when he turns, and AJ can't have a title shot until BFG 2013.

Yes, because Christopher Daniels must lose the title one week after he wins it.

If he won it on the 1/24 Impact, then he could hold it till 3/14 at Lockdown and lose it to Bully in a Trip Threat match with A&8's leader or something, or lose it to AJ at BFG.

But Goldfinger, I'd expect him to be on the tour, he'll probably return the first 1st or 2nd taping.

But then the title in the match wouldn't mean as much as it'd be "Bully vs. A&8s rep, and oh yeah Daniels is in it to and it's for the title". And as much as Daniels has been great, he's not a long-term champ when there's a clear lack of top faces on the roster that you can use given stips and you don't change long-term plans because of this.

Plus, who's to say Hardy is just going to be off tv the entire time. They can do updates on him to push his return and if he is going to face an A&8 rep for the title at Lockdown they can start the buildup there.

It doesn't matter if he's at home, it's so clear that this was impromptu booking that was a cause of putting the Championship on a convicted felon. They had two options, one made them look somewhat bad, the other made them look terrible. They chose to write off their champion for one month.

This isn't about me not liking the product I see. It's far, far, far past that. If it's Garrett Bischoff Vs. Wes Brisco that they've decided to do, it's a completely different story. That was a choice they made. They did not advertise that they would be showing us prime Shawn Michaels Vs. Prime The Rock for the first time ever. They did not advertise Brock/Rock II. They advertised Garrett Bischoff Vs. Wes Brisco. That's boring and bad, but it's their real choice.

Jeff Hardy being the champion was a move made by TNA to gain publicity, and hopefully advertise him to the WWE fans who miss him. This was a selection I disagree with. It makes me pretty pissed every time I think that he is currently the champion, but I can deal with that. It was their choice. It makes sense.

However, when they pretend that a man could not go overseas because he was beaten with a rubber hammer, when in reality that man is actually a convicted felon, fine.

But, when that man is also treated as the number one guy in TNA in kayfabe terms, and he is given a large gold belt to signify that, that's when I draw the line. Probably 97 or 98% of wrestling fans know that wrestling is staged, and the outcomes are all predetermined. We like to forget that though. I know I sure as hell do. I don't like to think "Where is the toughest guy on the roster? The main man? The tough guy? The dude I'm watching this for? Oh, shoot, he got injured. Must just be a coincidence that he's also a convicted felon, and that we're in the United Kingdom for the only episodes that he's injured for, and that sometimes convicted felons are not allowed to leave the country. Weird coincidence."

Now, I'm not that much of a mark. In fact, I probably don't forget enough that I'm watching a staged product with predetermined outcomes. However, I can't help but know deep that down that I'm being cheated and not shown my champion, because he is a convicted felon. That is not right.

It's even worse that they've advertised him as being there for the event, clear false advertising.

Facebook implies people have been tweeting Dixie direct about the situation.

I don't care about Jeff, Sting is infinitely better...


.....however I do care about the belt. There is a locker room of talent who deserve that belt, but instead it's given to the "Uncharismatic Stigma" , his sole destroying inner monologue and the "Creatures of Shite".


I'd also like to say that if you are going to issue an injury story to avoid attending the UK, at least imply a REAL injury....like broken arm sustained through an accident in the ring etc. Do NOT imply that a kayfabe injury of being beaten with a toy "Fisher Price" hammer has kept you out of the UK, it's just insulting.

Hell I'd prefer they would issue a statement saying that Jeff Hardy has a tummy bug and cannot attend, at least it sounds REAL!

Oh, FFS. Whether or not he can get a UK work visa is irrelevant. You can't leave the country here when you're on probation. He's on probation. End of story. There was never a question.
