Matt Hardy is doing swell

Print Friendly

Clean and sober.

For a brief time (the “Mattitude Era”), Matt Hardy was one of my favorite WWE performers, despite his limited push. Like most, I’d also been blown away by his tag-team performances years earlier with his brother, Jeff, as well, when the longtime fans-turned-wrestlers risked their health for death-defying moves never before seen.

So naturally, despite Matt’s weird behavior over the last 24 months, I was concerned for his physical and mental well-being when I learned of his recent car accident and subsequent firing from TNA. The wrestler smashed his Corvette into a tree in North Carolina on Saturday and was taken into custody because authorities believed he was drunk. (Outrageous, I know.)

Turns out, I need not have worried.

According to Matt, everything’s cool, haters. In fact, life couldn’t be better, according to this statement Hardy released:

“When the side windows glass smashed into my face, arms and neck, some of the blood that did felt almost angelic. I went from being afraid to die to feeling like I was almost being reborn with some sort of an ABSOLUTE PURE LIFE-FORCE. It was the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced. I felt like I’d just received the blood of an angel flowing inside me–I know this sounds crazy!  Due to these, I only have urges to help people. And miraculously, all my vices are gone.”

Sounds like a hell of a gimmick. (Who wrote this promo…Vince Russo?) Geez, I hope Matt checks himself into the nearest rehab facility when his head clears. Personally, as someone who’s been close to those in recovery, at least part of what he was rambling about sounds somewhat grounded in the roots of A.A.’s 12-step program, which might be Matt’s only hope at this point.
