While there are some fans out there that are bitter at him for leaving WWE, Jeff Hardy still has a large and loyal group of fans. When TNA announced that he was going to be headlining the latest episode of Impact Wrestling in a steel cage match with James Storm, many of those fans made sure to tune in. Hardy helped the company receive an increase in viewership this week. It further solidifies that name value is still the most important trait in wrestling.

A rather interesting omission from the upcoming tag team championship tournament in TNA is Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy. As of right now, the brothers have not been officially announced as entrants. From what we know, both guys are under contract to the promotion for at least another year, so that can be ruled out as a factor for their absence. Management could also be saving their announcement to build up the anticipation from the audience.

In a sign that he might have completely ruled out the possibility of ever signing with WWE, David Benoit recently took a jab at the company during an interview. He specifically stated that since their program has changed so much over the years, they have effectively killed his passion for wrestling. Benoit then went on to praise TNA, praising a recent steel cage match featuring James Storm, Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy at Lethal Lockdown.
